    these were my first crack at long exposures on the D50... which do you like better? I actually caught the train on the second one... hence the blur :drool:

    If these look as good large as they do small, they are terrific.
    Toss-up which one is better.

    Well they are both terrific.
    Good exposure, nice composition.
    Very dynamic.

    The only little thing that bothers is the slight downward slant of the top 'railway track.' If this were mine, I might try a transformation, dragging down the left side (so you don't lose the resolution on the right. Then crop off some of the top into a pano shape.

    It would be lovely - and I still can't prefer one over the other.

    thanks for the tip!

    the main reason that I didn't transform the image as you suggested, was that I was worried about making the horizon "crooked".

    whatever, it was a minor point about a very nice photo (actually two)
