From a technical standpoint, this is a terrific effort - crisp, sharp with everything detail well controlled and captured. From an artistic standpoint, it's also very effective. Personal choice would have been to have less steam obscuring the front of the engine, but it works just fine as it is. A worthy entry into the challenge and directly related to the challenge subject. A good effort being a technical and artistic success.

Nicely done! But a tighter crop on the train may have been better. JMO!

I like this image in so many ways. Maybe the composition could be a little stronger for more impact? good luck - 8

There's a really nice, smooth quality about the textures in this pic that I really dig.
