Took this Friday morning while waiting for the GO train to come into the station and stop! Not sure what the DPCers will think of the blurred train, but I love it. Given that the rail is rusted and static, I wanted to add something dynamic to the shot, and the train in motion was perfect! It was just dumb luck that the wheel in this bogie was also rusted.

Woohoo! Didn't get to check this this morning and so was eagerly waiting on the train to get into Toronto! 4th place, that's great! And just checking Brad's comment, that is very cool that there are no votes below 5! I thought for sure I was going to get dinged with the extra topaz and blurred train here on DPC. I'm really happy this shot did as well as it did! Thank you all so much!

Great finish Nick, I love how there isnt a single score below 5. I wonder if that has ever happened on this site :)

I'll spare you how I feel about this type of processing. I will say that I love the composition. Rust comes alive!

The blur on the wheel is not consistent with its rotation around its axis. In the photo it seems to turn around the contact point with the rail... Anyway it remains a brilliant idea and a great shot
