Default Does this have a chance?

This is my second time night rail-fanning. Please comment. Criticism, and just general.

-JPEG Compression
-Blurry
-Horizon Unlevel

I am certainly not an expert on night photography, but IMO the problems I have listed above (except for the unlevel horizon which could be fixed) kill this shot.

I love the concept, but it'll be hard to fix how blurry / fuzzy it is..

Agree. Basically, unlike bigbassloyd, I don't even see a concept here. It's a picture of a dark train, only, it doesn't have any special lighting that makes it interesting.

It's also way too dark. There has been nIght Time Shooting threads on dos and don'ts in the threads. Look them up. The first is to lower the ISO as much as you can depending on camera to still get the shot. With my 300D, I try to keep it on 100 all the time, 200 when I need it. But I don't want to go higher because I don't want to bother with it inpost processing.

Tripods are a must, even a cheap one like the one I've had for eight years. And in spite of what my sig line says, practive, practice, practice!!!

Exactly. Too much camera shake on this one. The powerlines are all doubled up.
