PEQ. What story are you trying to tell with this one?

Also, it needs more contrast.

Everything seems cluttered and lost in translation.

Interesting nonetheless!

Like Matthieu said, it needs more contrast. Basically, it looks like a grey shot; there's no black or white in it. The tell tale sign is the snow. You should Second, he asks, "What story are you trying to tell?" A variation of that for RP is: Why do you think this shot deserves to be here? There's a clutter of railroad signals, a passing train and nothing else. It also looks like you're pretty close to that train, too.

Joe I love your feed back.

I was not really "Near" the train. I guess the story I'm going for is who's signal? With the signal for the block and and the crossing signal in the fore ground.

I will work on the contrast as I did not see that till now
