Very nice image to convey the sense of motion. Will it work better with smoother colors (and maybe desaturated a lot), instead of the sharp contrast and blown out skies and the lantern? Take care.

What!? A new upload? Amazing! :-) Yet I was hoping for a nice rural Carolina scene. Not that this isn't an interesting/fun shot ... but not what I enjoy best of your work.....
Hello, Lannie. Now I know why you haven't been posting - you've been in the hospital recovering from a train accident! Seriously, I have a life long interest in trains, and getting close to them (but not this close). I like your perspective of this one. I love how you captured the light in the sky and the reflection on the train. Well done. Regards, liz
Thanks, Liz. Isn't it amazing what a long lens and then a crop can do for the illusion of closeness? As for speed, the train was barely moving. The long exposure almost turned the sky back to day. Other shots of the same railroad crossing in this folder show how dark it was. So. . . cameras can lie. --Lannie
Thanks, Lou Ann and Janis. It is nice to be posting again. --Lannie
IIIII Like it!!! Very cool shot...glad to see a new post from you. ~j
WOW! Very effective image, Lannie!
Great sense of motion in this composition, Lannie. Makes you feel like you're right there, feeling the breeze from the train blow at your face.

:-) could that be the oil lantern of a hobo or gypsy traveler ;-) interesting image, Lannie... love everything about it... could be another interesting view from the bridge...
Thanks, everybody. Kim, it was going quite slow, and the sky was quite dark. As we know, cameras can be made to lie. . . . Sheryl, the light is electrical and is on the end of the arm that comes down to block traffic. I like the hobo lantern version of reality better, though. --Lannie
cool image ... will take a look at the original
