Great shot.

Reminds me of Jurassic Park. ...but is clearly lacking the bloody rampage of the T-Rex. Even a pack of ferocious Velociraptors clinging to the train and climbing up the bridge would really make this pop! :)

All the elements go together well here. Your composition and processing make for a great shot.

It took me a minute to figure out where the smoke came from. :) Great composition.

This looks very similar to a train I took in India, just with different vegetation. Looks fun!

That's really cool but the track supports don't look too sturdy!

Cool pov backwards
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 02:57:41 AM
I'd love to see a larger version of this. I see a loss of detail from compression, but this is an extremely complex image that clearly would not compress easily. Still gets a high vote and a fave.

Is this at some type of park? Looks like a lot of fun.

Beautiful scenery. New Zealand?
The people on the train are quite distracting, it might have been worth trying to clone them out. (Easy I'm sure .... not)
