These two linked below have to be my two favorite images out of thousands that I have made

I have always enjoyed night photography, and these are two of the best results that I have got..

This just might my favorite of all I've taken. Was almost an afterthought when I took it. Was looking to do something unique since the sun was in my face.

Default Here's my favorite

http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=9268

Rocky Neck State Park on the Long Island Sound. Taken from the overpass between campground area and beach. Nice beach. Nice trains.

Amtrak was in the process of upgrading the old NH to Boston when this was shot. Note the concrete ties on one track. One F40 could take 8 cars and just nick 100mph on either side of Providence. A bit slower through here, but scenery more than makes up for lack of speed.

I like it because it's one of my first attempts of action shots (actually my second one, i think).

Anyways, all of you experts, tell me what you think what I should do to improve.

That is a such a superb location that it seems almost impossible to take bad photograph! (Although I probably could.)

It is a very nice location. When I took my photo near that area I had to stand on a rocky outlook. Too bad they made the sides of the bridge higher, now you can't take any photos from that bridge. Alot has changed since then!

...especially when I look in the mirror!

Nice picture. Still the same 8-9 car Amfleet train's though. I've had quite a few RR people who've seen that picture ask if it's California. I guess the catenary and HHP in your shot would give it away...
