Default As promised

.....i had a "help me figure out glints" thread but it kinda grew out of control and away from my point. Here is the promised attempt I would show you guys. I wish I was down track a little more to get more of a straight-away, plus I wish I had my "wide" on, the kit lens. I really do need some help with glint. half an hour before sunset/after sunrise. But what else? What should I expose for? Things like that

There is something to be said for trying something different from the usual straight shot! Although perhaps not as one's first glint attempt.

This does seem to be more of a dusk shot than a glint, however. The background is just not that dark. My biggest problem with the shot, however, is that my eye goes to the well-lit structure in the background, rather than to the train.

There must be a lot more people batteling around to get such a picture accepted at RP.net.
About your picture: The very dark train does not become visible in front of that dark background (= the loco should have been more silhouetted against a slightly clearer background) - plus a very bright sky above (this attracts too much the attention of the viewer !).
A plus are the well lit tracks in the foreground.

Also my ultimate challenge: http://forums.railpictures.net/attac...tid=3269&stc=1
(I think to rework this with a tighter cropping and a bit cleared up)
