Greetings from the CC

First impressions: Love the light on the skyline

Composition: Seems balanced with the train in the lower third and the city taking up the rest of the picture. Enough space left in front of the train for movement. Including the S curve of the track helps lead the viewer through the photo.

Exposure: The sky and skyline are exposed well however the foreground is a bit dark and the whitebalance could use a bit of warming up. Shooting with it set to shade or cloudy (rather than auto) sometimes helps.

Impact: I think the darkness of the foreground has taken away from the impact of the image. Brightening up and possibly warming up the image would improve it.

The dynamic range in these types of images can be quite challenging to capture.

Keep shooting.

I like the composition but the blue is a little over done in terms of reflections on the buildings. Great focus though.

the contrast of this shot is really nice but there's a lot of clutter in the forground (the train is awesome though) that distract the eye. Overall though, a really nice shot.
