    I'm liking the train in the tunnel - particularly the front of it with the slight motion blur, looks very effective. Where was your focus point? Are the pillars on the left side too dark................can't make my mind up..................?

    Focus point is whatever AF grabbed. I just got off that train and when it started rolling I turned and snapped a pic. I'm lucky it was in focus at all.

    Al of them are great, but my favorite has to be the railroad bridge at Harpers Ferry! A close second is the inside of the metro station.

    In #3, you missed the most important aspect of the photo. The people.:D

    In the last 3, I have to give you an A for impact and composition, but a much lower grade for the extreme contrast.

    #5 is my personal fav since it was obviously the most difficult to get.

    Just wondering, why do you think #5 was the hardest to get?

    I would think that #5 is tough because of lighting, and movement of the train.

    You definitely have a good eye, maybe even 2 of them. ;)

    Yes, that! It would have been nice even if the train was at a stand still. The movement just adds to it. I also like the square format. Nice touch!
