The only thing I can see is that it might be cropped too close at the bottom. Other than that, if I were you I may bump the contrast slightly to bring out the rays of sunlight a little more.

And finally, awesome shot! There is much to appreciate in this image. After looking at it the third time, I noticed all the large icicles.

What? What? WHAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT???????????????

Great shot as is!!!!

Ok, Ok Ok. For RP, try the lead loco more to the lower left ROT intersection if you can.

And yes, contrast is SO important with B&H. I can't help much there but I think you need some more contrast. A bit more contrast to make this pop.

Killer shot.

And I am a steam guy...

What a great shot. The lighting and light fog are just perfect, and angle is great.

The RP rejected version looks a bit tight -- I prefer the flickr version. You could still give it a bit more breathing room, if you have any to spare.

I still would have boosted the contrast a little to make the light rays pop more. But anyway...GREAT SHOT!

Thanks, Dennis - it's good to get some input from a representative of B&H here on RP.

Can we get some input from Adorama?

Speaking of B&H, I'm sitting on the throne reading my B&H catalog right now. Oh wait, I'm posting on here...
