Well, I kind of like the fact that the trailing unit's red lights are on. I agree that it would be better with a long train climbing up the hill, though. I'll have to try this one again. Would you have any advice to make the color and contrast better? I'm definately keeping this one for my personal collection, and would love to improve it some more if I can.

My thoughts, exactly! I could have shot this one wedgie style, but I thought the light power was particularly well suited for this shot idea... oh well, at least I tried!
