This is the old narrow gauge train that runs between Durango and Silverton in Colorado. It started snowing right before I snapped the shutter. It was preparing for the afternoon return trip back to Durango.

I found the same thing when I photographed a similar steam engine from the same perspective. All the steam rained down in front of the train as spots. I almost entered mine in last month's FS. I cloned most of it out in my own pic, however. I'm very curious if that aspect of your shot will come off to the average voter as what it is, or if they will perceive it as a flaw.

oh my! This is wonderful! I really wish that you had desaturated the barn a bit. The colors on the right are so soft and so nice, that the red really draws my eye. -9- (would definitely be a 10 if the barn was not as red)

I find the building a little distracting, otherwise this is a wonderful shot.

Wow! You really captured the power of this train. Perfect colors and leading lines.

Not sure how you got that old "worn" spotty look. Pretty good though..
