No, its bad. Look at the trucks. See how dark they are? Its very harsh high sun. Like everyone suggested, maybe try lightening the trucks. Also I am curious, if you are off duty then why do you wear PPE when you take pictures?
I personally have had a problem with those trying to tell us to turn railroad photography into an "art form." It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG
