Nice detail. It would be nice to tone down the lamp above, adding more emphasis onto the main subject.

I really like the lighting on the red valve handles. The light bulb is a little bright, but I like it in the shot.

Thanks. You won't win a race with one of those but it should be fun, yes.

I reduced the brightness of the lamp a little, but I don't wanna go too dark, it's the brightest spot in the locomotive after all.

This is a good rendition of the scene exactly as is.

An interesting subject, there's lots to look at and the lighting is very appealing.
