Regarding light streaks, I think this is the rule of land:


Your odds may improve if you can get the image more focused on
the railroad aspect - signals, crossings, ect. Or atmospheric - Moon, weather, ect.

Also - the photo appears somewhat overexposed.

Thank you, Mitch.My photos were often rejected because they were underexposed, so I edit photos to make a little brighter.
P.S. My name is Vitaly and surname is Koval

There is perhaps too much light to make the streak "stand out." Perhaps a late evening dusk or early morning low light shot freezing the train would look pretty cool with the waters reflection and the skyline in the background.

the overexposure hurts this one a lot. I think the PEQ is as much for the solid bright white blob of the oncoming lights on the highway as anything else.

Hard to tell there is a train there - and over exposed.

Nice location if you do it right.

These kind of shots are hit or miss, this recent one of mine is somewhat similar got a PEQ too

The first thing that stood out to me in yours was the streak didnt go all the way, that might be the issue with mine too.

If a train is coming at me and I know I can't leave the shutter open long enough that the head end (lights) travel off frame, I'll wait until they're out of frame.
