Iknow this has a lot of barrel distortion. Was wondering if in this case it should be kept... or not ?

Other comments welcome.

I like this and I think the barrel distortion works well. Nice to see that the speed hasn't blurred the train completely as I've seen with these kind of shots before.

Quite effective!

Regards,

Syd

Hi,

I think the barrel distortion adds to the illusion of speed - almost makes it look like the train is "leaping" forward...

Wow...nice sense of motion play goin' on here! The colors are awesome also and the exposure looks pretty good. The angle of this shot is attractive. Yep, this baby's a keeper!! :-)

I'm going to go slightly against the grain here. If I had taken this shot I'd be thrilled, but I don't think it's one of your best.

Technically it's an excellent shot, but that is what I expect of you. Artistically I'm afraid I don't find it terribly inspiring.

It may be quite different in a large print, and I'm sure it could have some commercial value, but I don't think I would put a print on my wall.

Just a thought and seeing as you seem to like the Illustrator effects, maybe you could do something with this? To be honest when I first saw this image I wasn't too keen on the platform or the grey area to the bottom left - maybe if you did that vector rendering on this or something? Dunno just a thought....
