Was trying to get some shots of just the trestle when I heard the train whistle down the track. Ran to set up the camera. Got off several good shots but as the engine passed the others came out blury. Realized the train was shaking the ground!

Very nice colors and composition. I like the inclusion of the road; it gives the photo depth and perspective. Great capture.

LOL your coomment shaking the ground :)This is a lucky shot then huh. You did good pays to be there at the right time and in the right place. My sons favorite he wanted to see it several times last week.

I think that perhaps there's just a little too much of the dark area beneath the bridge. I feel that the composition has been left a bit 'top heavy'. I think that the colours and textures are spot-on.

You really caught this at a wonderful angle. Just look at how many individual cars can be seen toward the back of the train.

Good composition, good colors and good shadows, this would make a fine photo to publish in a train book.

Great shot of the train! Would've given it a 9 if more of the bottom were cropped out. (8)

Beautiful picture- but the double border is distracting. (7)

Clean and crisp feel to this shot. Glad you didn't try to lighten up the shadows under the bridge.
