My initial though went from 'Nice' to 'uhhhh'. 'Uh' because it's a well executed shot of the classic viewing angle for an approaching train ... but the train is receding. 'Uh' because the foreground area this side of the tracks shows lighter and darker areas that don't make any difference on the plant shadows in the two areas. 'Uh' because it overall seems too blue.

Very nice. I like it. I like how the green of the train pops a little out of the cold background, but still remains cold itself.

The pic isnt an HDR. Its a single jpeg shot I converted to 16 bit tiff so I could run it through Nik Effex Pro, then through Topaz Adjust. Here is the original untouched. The engine is the same on front and back of the train. If the lights are red its receding. If they are white its approaching. Hence the scattered snow flying low over the tracks behind the train.

Going or coming it is still a good shot. My father worked the GO trains out of Mimico for a few years in the 1970's. Brings back good memories. The rolling stock certainly has gone high tech since then.

I like this. The PP gives the feeling of Winter (with the capital W).
