I was out sightseeing today and captured a few images. I've always loved trains and couldn't resist photographing one at a local museum. I also love railroad tracks and I realize they are overdone and can be quite boring, so I decided to try a different angle.

Thanks Dina for sharing!

I like trains and tracks too, but not really by choice - I'm a safety professional in railroad systems lol.

About the 2nd photo, since there is no clear subject - I could be blind - except the tracks it might be better next time to use a deep depth of field (aperture 16 or higher)?

It could be a leading line photo if there is some subject at the end, like a stationary train. I'm seriously against photo near live tracks.

As art each person has a different way of framing things. I felt the sky at the top left isn't helping, and here's a cropped version.
