Overall it's a nice shot, but to me it's just a snap shot. JMO!

From a technical standpoint, this is a terrific effort - crisp, sharp with everything detail well controlled and captured. From an artistic standpoint, it's rather bland and uninviting to the viewer. Sometimes an image, even one as technically competant as this one is, is just an image. A worthy entry into the challenge and directly related to the challenge subject. A good effort falling short in the artistic sense.

The composition is lacking something for me.

Midday sun and the resulting strong shadows are the main thing that I think may hold this one down. I'll bet at some other time of day you could get a nice gleam off those tracks and the brick would look gorgeous in the early evening sun.

good photograph ..sharp and vivid. If there was something else along with the railroads, it would have definitely raised more interest...

What is the subject of this photo? The building? It's too open with so much white/grey space from the cement. The telephone wires are distracting (though I realize you can't edit them out in Basic). The composition leaves something to be desired. Not to be harsh. IMHO I think this photo needs something of a central focus.
