    The railroad bridge over the water.
    The only thing that I really wish I had done was leave a little more room at the top...
    Oh, and the 3 fps thing finally came in handy :)

    I like the colors and the exposure; very nice and crisp. I am torn between liking the train as is, and wanting to see it closer to "caught" by the shutter. But...I like it; it gives a nice sense of motion. Nice composition as well, and I agree with you about the top of the train. Were you using a polarizer?

    I think this would look really great in black and white or possibly sepia...I agree you could use more room at the top, and possibly a less tighter crop, but other than that this works really well...gives a great since of movement, and the bridge really adds to what would be a plain old train shot :)

    Really like the sense of movement in this picture and all that brown which generally does not work well in colour to me looks great. I actually think not seeing the top of the bridge and train may add to the picture, makes it seem more encapsulated in the bridge.

    Great shot, really like it - Nikon sharp :)

    Perhaps to be fussy; a slower shutter speed to get more motion blur?
