The colors just need to pop more. Maybe a little more contrast, certainly some saturation. But to be honest, it suffers from what some of us mentioned to the poster down below with his NS shot from Welch. It needs snow on the ground in my opinion.

Joe,

I agree as far as the amount of snow on the ground. It would've been nice to see it sticking. I may just tuck this one away in the archives.

It is far from your best work. The pilot of the engine blends into the adjacent car, the sky is dull, the eye goes toward the distant bright area down the track, the wires are distracting. Uninteresting straight-track wedgie, uninteresting setting. Despite the falling snow, not a fan.

As for color, to my mind the yellow is too strong for a day with heavy overcast and falling snow - it should be muted.

Thanks, J!

To the external hard drive it goes!
