That would actually be a cool shot if your f stop was high (for depth of field) and the train was in focus too.

The floating wires at the front of the loco are actually not floating. The only part of the wires you can see are from the reflection of the loco's light, the rest of the wires are dark and appear to...

I like it, but then again I am not a screener. It is kind of small I guess, wonder if you could crop it a bit.
