    I love #2. Great image, but it could use some more contrast, it's primarily middle-gray.

    The diagonal lines are what make this good, for me. I like the crossing paths, the bridge being light and the tracks being dark.

    I took the liberty of taking the color original and converting it to black and white green filter with Silver Effex and then played with the burn tool. I tried not to obliterate the detail..

    Yours isn't 'poor' I just thought it needed some contrast.

    Thanks, yeah I did it in photoshop. I'm glad you like it :) I really like the shot.

    Too much angle. Now i can see all the stuff in the street, which is rather distracting.

    Personally I like the first one more. I'll remind you though that I'm not very experienced with a camera or what looks good in terms of composition, just learning as I go.

    I don't know if you noticed but there is no train in the first two shots :)

    As mentioned the 3rd one is too blury, otherwise it is a good crop and a good idea.
