Default Thoughts?

What do you guys think of this image? Submit or leave it for the personal archives? Any improvements to be made or suggestions?

Thanks,

Chase, a very technically well done photo, but not very railroady unfortunately. Personal archives, IMO. Now if you could get a train stopped up there, or even better, a locomotive, then you'd pretty much be set.

I'm with Ken - technically perfect, but needs more cow bell.

A little early in the night and shoot a loco at 1/15th would be neat.

Thanks guys! I may have to "Knapp that" when I get some flash units. I even thought perhaps using an Amtrak passing by may appear more railroady since the Amfleet coaches are reflective.

I even thought slow shutter in the late evening or on an overcast day would make for some nice shots.

Flashes won't work because if you stop the action then there are too many obstructions to the train unless you can get higher.

Travis,

Good point! I can get a little higher, but I don't think high enough to escape the obstructions. Will have to rethink this one.

I like the composition and execution, but that streetlight above the st albans sign is really distracting and kills it for me. Thats unfortunate.
