I'm ready for my close-up

BNSF 5106 was one of several eastbound freights that stopped at the Fullerton Amtrak station on Saturday night. With each stop, several of us rail photographers would swarm the train to get our images. It was a fun night for us.
I love the lighting, the skyline and the way the train looks just sitting in the whole scene. Great shot!

I think your composition was great as well. You definitely had the best perspective. Wouldn't have gotten that shot sitting down there on the platform.
Hey KenSz.. this photo along with some of your others i see could be made a case for some Calendar.. maybe in the future... keep up the good shots.. nice...
