I look at night flash photography the same way I look at drone photography. We see a lot of blah images that scream one of the following:

"Hey guys, I bought some flashes!" or

"Look mom, I'm flying!"

But besides that, a lot of the resulting photos are not all that compelling. Many of the flash shots are either poorly lit, or completely nuked. Way too many drone shots are taken from too high an altitude and with excessive down-angles.

I personally would probably not have submitted the shot that started this thread and would have expected a rejection if I had. Only the lead loco is lit and the lighting is uneven, not only on the loco, but on the signal bridge as well. As a learning experience, it looks like a fine start, but some additional lighting is required and perhaps some tweaking on the aiming and power settings.
