Potentially striking as in it has some nice elements. I am inclined to wanting to see this a bit darker, with more emphasis on the lense flare. Tells a nice story, tho, and trains are always good for that. The image of the engineer in the train window is a nice touch. For my tastes, it seems a bit washed out, which may be as you planned, since it's a raw shot...and may be a difference in preference.

I like the composition but find the halo andartifacts distracting. Also thelights flare could be toned down slightly. Agree with Scot about the B&W potential.

Image was shot at around "with out checking time" 8-9PM

I did try to darken it up, but then the conductor was darkened out and the train lost the realness "true color of train".

I have paint shop pro 4,6,and 9 and could not get the image to darken with out loosing the color.

The B&W I tried but B&W looks strange to for this shot because the newness of the train, if it was a steam engin I could live with B&W.

The light flare is true and real. I do hate the green spot, I might clone the green spot out.

Thanks all.

Any suggestions would help as to darken the image.

Not sure what sort of darkness you were after here - had a go at adjusting, what do you think now?

Hmm not sure what to say

image looks very snap shoty. Dont really like the flarring. Maybe try eliminating it and using ps to put in some uniformed flare into the shot. Yea backing looks a little hazzy and yea i would think increasing mid tone contrast would fix this.

I prefer doms edit on this shot

It does not feel like there is a particular focal object in this picture.

Perhaps a different shot angle would help. The picture isn't as clear as it should be - what camera did you use ?

I agree that B&W might change this picture some.
