Both of those shots are nice; I especially like the CP shot, has feel to it...I can feel the cold air and hear those GEVOs.

When I shoot on cloudy days, unless there are some neat clouds or something, I tend to like to do stuff like framing the train against something, like a rock cut or a big building, or finding a road bridge and shooting downwards, to keep the bright white sky out of my shots. I also find myself doing more pans, blurs, and other creative stuff on cloudy days, but thats another story...

Hope this helps!

Oh, and nice catch on two matched CP GEVOs, I have yet to do that, and they go practically right by my house!!!
