Warning! Railroad Crossing...

It had been snowing quite heavily the morning I took this shot. I was actually standing fairly close to the train as it soared by. Had I been wearing a baseball cap I am sure I would have lost it.

Fantastic picture. I don't usually like selective colour but it works here. (Keep on not wearing baseball cap Smile)

Agree with frank on this, beautiful composition and great with the contrast of BW and red.

Thanks everyone for your kind compliments. It all kind of happened pretty fast between the time I realized the train was coming and my decision to capture the moment. Glad you enjoyed my composition.

Nice. I like the contrast between the colour red & the rest B&W

FINE! I'll give it a 10 (I hate giving out tens).
Great shot. Liek everyone else - I loved the selective colour.
