Cool Close but no banana

I see two problems. One is composition, the two trains are too tight to the edges with way too much dead space in the middle and top. Sometimes all the catenary wire can be interesting enough to fill up dead space like that, but in this case it doesn't work for me. Secondly the lighting is pleasant but not particularly dramatic. If you had zoomed in more (but leaving more space on both sides) and waited until the two trains were closer it might have worked better. But you really needed something like glint, or perhaps a more dramatic sky, to make it interesting.
