There's quite a few issues with the version as posted(noise, halos, artifacts, etc). While there may be some more effective editing to be done with the original file, there's no way to fix blurry...

There's no denying that chasing the equivalent of a smoking freight car is pretty worthless. Just don't hate the RR for it considering their past givings to the foam world. :D

I've noticed a few of his photos are overdriven in editing (and underdriven in distortion correction). I get converging lines in a composition but this really doesn't pull me in as a viewer.
