    It's very nice, though I have two small gripes with it: The vignetting is too strong and doesn't really suit the shot that well IMHO, and secondly the train tracks are slightly off center - I would have preferred to see these either dead centre, or even better, starting off to one side and leading into the middle of the frame.

    I think it is great. I think that if the tracks were in the exact center, than you would have too much of the rock/hill in the right side of the photo. Good job

    Nice shot. As others have said, I think the vignetting is a bit overdone, but that's a personal preference thing. I see you're from Sierra Vista. What were you up to in the cold North? I currently live in Alaska, but I travel to S. Arizona about 2-3 times a year.

    I like it. Too dark and tracks should be more centered.

    I like the pattern of the sky and your angle when you took this shoot. My only issue is that it's too dark for my taste. Thanks for sharing, btw.

    Cheers!

    I like the photo in general. I would have love to see a more dramatic sky and the color of the sunset being bring out more. Just my personal preferrance :)

    love the leading lines created by the road here and the contrast of snow and the soil. just some soft constructive criticisms I do find it a bit underexposed and the colors are a bit faint, try increasing exposure and use nd grad to cut the light in the horizon. cheers!
