Default Trying something different at night

Hey all,

I took a shot of a Coal Train stopped at Spring Bluff the other evening. The light from a few signals was the only lighting and it gave quite a good effect.

30sec F/4.0

I have also been mucking around in my newly installed PhotoShop CS3 and took this photo of 1620 in Toowoomba.

Let me know what you think.

Cheers,
Mick

I'm on the fence with the 1st one. The lights are too bright, yet the rest of the picture is too dark. Good effort but those lights are distracting, at least on here. The 2nd one, good job, but I think if you try to submit it here it'll get hit for back lit. Although it's not that bad, but I'm just guessing that's what will happen. Keep it up!
