1. Why did you choose to shoot with those ugly poles directly in front instead of taking a few steps and getting them out? Those were the first things I noticed.
2. I think the engine may be a hair too close to the tunnel. Also looks a tad overexposed, not poor lighting as they put.
3.Not poor lighting. Looks like maybe a little too much saturation, that headlight looks funky.
4.No idea, just not an overall fan.
7. Personally think it would be a better fall shot.

I guess overall NS isn't the best road to shoot in the winter, their pant scheme kills most shots.
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
