Default Your thoughts on this one?

Just looking for opinions on this one as a photograph, not for RP as I already have a color version of it on here.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/joethephotog/3787056387/

If you're a member, click on "All Sizes" to see it large. I wass working on a new process of this shot and decided to see if I could do something a little left of center of what I normally do. Do you think it worked or not?

It's fine. My first reaction is that I see haloing of some sort at the tops of trees and engine and it looks a bit off, but that could be me.

Now, comparing it to

I think this one is better because the light is put to better use, but then the issue may be that the original was not well processed, it seems hazy or lacking in contrast and the light seems to have some glare.

I also like the newer one better because there is an interesting patch of light just past the engines and the crossbucks are included and stand out well. It is like a stopping point at the end of the shot, works nice for me.

I'm never a huge fan of basic wedgies.

BTW I am logged into Flickr but I don't get the size options. Is there some group within Flickr that I am not a member of?

I am in the same boat and even have you as a contact on there?

I'm not sure why that is, but I have noted that I'm on a Flickr page not signed in and sometimes I see the "All Sizes" button and sometimes I don't.

Thanks for the comment on the shot. I still need to go back and repros the RP shot.
