My first submission...please be gentle. I used a wide angle lense to get close to the track and still get the sign in, but I don't have an external flash yet. But eventhough most of the flash was blocked by the lense, the sign still got overexposed...not sure how that happened. Probably should have tried again with less output but the trains weren't cycling quick enough for my aching feet. So I tried to help the picture in photoshop with a curve adjustment and a bit of messing with the hue/desaturation settings, which helped a little.

AWESOME! I love the effect that the train has! The sign tho, why is it 'glowing' (for lack of better words)? What setting did you use? 'B'? E-mail me...annina.rupe@wartburg.edu

Nice action, good composition. I like how the sign glows in the darkness and the train zooms at us. The diagonals work very nicely.

The man driving the train almost looks like an animated character from a video game or something lol.

Very good. It seems to be a ghost train (including a ghost driver). But the overexposed sign is a little bit disturbing.

Nice use of blur and light streaks. I assume that's not what the symbols on the sign mean, but it gives that impression.
