I just see one (AMTRAK), it is very noisy and blurry. Why were you using such a high ISO with that light? Im not liking that location either.

The train is too centered and cut off, the image is square, it's to bright, there's to much foreground clutter, and it's blurry. (look at the vegitaiton at the bottom.)

The vegetation at the bottom is blurry due to a shallow DOF most likely.

Horrible quality, motion blur, and foreground clutter.

Not sure why you even submitted it.

Well it's too close to being square, but I guess it's not exactly square.

If you think 1021x680 is "too close to being square" then I fear you have no future in any field of endeavor that involves eyesight in any form.

You seriously question if this "does anything for anybody". How many shots like this do you see in the database? I'd keep looking if you have to ask such a silly question.

And to answer the question, it does nothing for me.
