    I managed to get some standard shots of this Steam Train as it came thru' the station but just had a one off chance to get the shot I was after. I was on my knees too close to the edge of the platform with the lens wide open. What do you think?

    Awesome shot, very cool indeed. The only thing I can think of that would have improved the photo is if you managed to focus/freeze the engineers more as they looked out the window. No doubt this would have affected the overall sense of motion in the locomotive, however.

    And I too would have loved to be there to see you shoot this. Great stuff!
