I'm new to dSLR photography, I was very happy with this photo that I took last night and was wondering what you think and if you could offer any constructive critisism?

I love long exposure shots, you can get some great shots - a lot of people take the attitude that they are not that interesting, or "seen one seen them all". I personally really like dragging the shutter...

However your problem here is the softness (did you use a tripod?) and the posts that get in the way. Maybe I would suggest getting closer to the train and get the foreground distractions out of the way. Also at the very top is a light which has really bled into the frame as it is so bright - i would just close in so that this is not in the shot.

It was taken by hand ona 1 second exposure, hence the softness. I would have used my tripod if I'd had it with me....

I actually quite like the posts, I think the add rather than detract from the composition, however I can see what you mean about the forground, I guess it's a personal thing (but I'm still learning so different ideas are always worth exploring... ;o)

Thanks for taking the time to have a look ;O)
