Nice atmosphere in this photo. Maybe if the train was a little blured depicting some movement it would be more interesting. (Maybe not too, would have to see it)

This is good - if the RR lights were a little sharper it would be even stronger.

Nice B&W, it's a little soft. That doesn't matter a whole lot thought.

If only the waggon was motion-blurred instead of "shaken" blinking light!

I KNOW NOT TO VOTE FOR YOU. BUT I CAN NOT HELP IT. YOU DID A GREAT JOD ON THIS ONE. I LIKE IT THE BEST OF ALL THE ONE THAT YOU HAVE DONE.

A slower shutter speed that caused a bit more blur in the train would have made this shot a little better.

A pleasure to see something other than road signs. Very original idea, and good timing with the train passing through. A good dramatic shot. Well done.

Good composition. Could maybe have done with a tad more sharpness but the contrasts are good. Is that the moon in the sky also? There seems to be a little bit of a haze around the sign, and the lights are a little bright, but otherwise the exposure is good. Ideally having the power lines cloned out would have been good, but I dont think it distracts from the image too much - it adds to the urbanness of the shot.

A motion blur will add to this shoot.

looks like a night shot, but it's not, is it? Attention-grabbing contrast, I like the haze of light around the sign.

Might have had a little more interest if the train had some motion blur.
