This is an old rail car at the trolley museum in Elgin, Il. I got there the last hour of the last day of the season. It was warm but pretty gloomy already.

This is a fun place. Kids can climb in and explore the old rail cars and they have a working trolley that runs to a forest preserve and back.

Great POV. Maybe more DOF?

Nice composition!

For the most part I really like how this was processed, except the gravel parts on the lower right corner. But that's minor. It almost looks like there was a texture added, or this was shot through a window (that sky is just amazing). I like the colors, perspective and great grittiness of it.

Color and angle is compelling. Great texture

Good mood, perspective, & processing. Gloomy & forlorn.....

Great leading lines. Also the muted tones work well for this subject. Nice work.

From this challenge, it seems like there are a lot of neglected trains out there. I like this shot, the colors, the gloomy sky.
