Hi Jack

An image with nice colours and lights but I think there is too much empty space at the bottom left. I'm not sure I like the Orton effect, but I know very little about it.
I see that you hand held the camera with a shutter speed of 1/40 sec, it seems to me that this Orton effect could be used to hide camera shake and any other shortfalls.

I like the perspective both of the platform and the ceiling. The Orton effect gives a sense of flowing movement

One gets the feel that this train is definitely in motion Jack. I would have preferred that the stationery subjects on the platform were sharper, but that may have been difficult due to your PP work. I also thought that the large expanse of bright platform opposite side of the track from the train, may be a tad too strong, just my two bits worth. Have done a WS to show another viewpoint as a comparison...Cheers...Ron

nice effect, well done. I would have emphasized to movement of the train and kept the surroundings in sharp focus. saluti. janos
