Took a ride and stopped at some train hot spots.

Enjoy.

I like #s 2 and 5, with mist and the motion blur respectively- it implies not only motion, but strength and potency.

To make the viewer feel they're there, all it needs is:

I also like #2 the best. Also something about #4 with the combination of colour & the rails in the foreground being out of focus makes it look kinda like a closeup photo of a train set.

4, 5 & 6 are my favorites.

I liked the way you used the DOF in #4 to keep the tracks from distracting from the building. Nice light too.

#5 is a great use of DOF too. Keeping everything in focus really heightened the motion of the train. It looks like you were standing so close that the motion of the train would have caused the camera to shake. What was the focal length of the lens you were using?

aj, In #5 it was dust kicked up from the train that caused the "mist" effect.

thanks

Sri, #4 was run thru a HDR merge ran thru photomatix. 3 Shots taken 2 stops apart, then a tonal map. Depth of field was real, nothing to fake there.

Focal length on #5 was 17mm but it was on my Rebel XT body with a 1.6x crop. Shot was 1/8th second, f16 .

thanks

Glad everyone enjoyed them.
