Side tracked train at the Railroad Museum in Duluth near Atlanta,GA. These are cars at the museum that were interesting because of their colors...more so in sections than whole cars. Removed some bothersome background imagery by cloning, and minor PS work.

Nie and bright, but the composition doesn't work for me: I don't find this particular conjunction of trains terribly interesting - in fact I want to focus on the yellow against the red of the further wagon, and the geometry of those hand rails. The bits of background visible beneath, and the weeds in front also confuse the focus of attention, I think. Rendering of the red and yellow is very strong though. 5

Great colors here. Nice shapes too. The sky is OK, but darker and bluer would have been nicer; a polarizer might have helped achieve this.

Nice shot, but it doesn't have much excitement for me. I do really like the color saturation though, awesome.

I love the colors, I wish trains around here were as vibrant as that.

Good Exposure. 7

I don't really see a focus. Feels very snapshotty. Perhaps a better angle would benefit this picture. Nice colors.

the white sky in this makes the shot risk boredom. but an interesting composition.
