Very nice shot! I love riding the Downeaster! Took it to Boston for the 4th, Great views in this area from the train too; just very hard to get a good shot through the windows while doing 70.

Very nice colors. I might play with the cropping a bit, either to make the train more prominent or to put it on the left third which will give it more of a sense of motion.

Thank you all for your nice comments. MSL - is this more what you were envisioning? I like this version too. Thanks a lot.

Thanks! I have the ProMaster 70-300, which I'm very pleased with; so not surprised the Tamron did such an excellent job in your capable hands!
