caught this freight rolling into Everett late on a dark February afternoon... i like the foreshortening effect that exaggerates the curve of the tracks, and the reflection of the locomotive's lights on the polished rails...

Nicely executed, squirl. Had I taken the photo, I probably would have, without thinking about it, cropped to horizontal orientation (or taken the shot in horizontal in the first place) and totally missed the effect of the light on the rails. As a result, I would have had a more mundane photo.
