Pity 'bout the power pole that is sprouting from the smokestack! Nothing a little time in Photoshop couldn't resolve though. The steam lingering alongside the locomotive is a nice bonus.

Great shot, while your in PS, IMHO you could warm up the image a little in the WB and make an obviously grey day a bit more like a summers day.

Right move on removing the poles! Like the B&W too.

Much improved sans poles! As I take more photos, I've grown to loath power poles/lines as visual pollution of what, sometimes, would otherwise be great scenes.

B&W also suits the image, but I would be tempted to lighten the picture overall, and in particular some of the darkest shadow areas which are close to going to solid black. Might then need to use the whites/recovery slider a bit to stop the sky burning out. I acknowldge though that overall lightness of images is a hard one to judge as no two monitors/viewing environments are exactly alike. But the monitor I'm using to view your B&W on is a bit on the bright side (work pc), so I makes me think the image on a calibrated monitor would be a bit dark. As a fellow K-x user, I know there will be detail in the darkness to discover.

While I critiquing, does the image slant down to the right a little?

PS: I confess to being a closet trainspotter, eg https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/groups/84-railroad-photography/2271-steam...kle-train.html
