I'm really torn between these two images. I like the how the train fills up much of the upper right hand corner in the 1st image but I wonder if there is too much motion to the point that it becomes a distraction? As far as this Quincy sign, unlike the 2nd image it's come across as being a little flat; it doesn't have a relection.

In the 2nd image there is less of a train blur and I do like the reflection on the sign. I also like how the leading edges line up nicely with each of the picture corners.

Just trying to decide which one to keep I'm thinking about printing oneof these....

I'm guessing your intent was to capture the moving train.
If that is so, why would it then be a distraction?
The first one, because of the motion, and it just seems better balanced.

For me the impact and tension in the first one makes it my pick, great dramatic shot.

I would choose the first due to the balance and tension between motion of the train car and stationary "wall".

I think that the second one is the best. It has room for the train to go, instead of it falling off the page.

For me, #1 as the train is pulling the eye into the frame, in #2 the train has already left the station..of course just my opinion.

The tilt adds nicely to the image, differentiating it from the norm.

Regards,

Bob

The first is much the better shot.

The first one.
The rail cars describe a negative space leading line that creates a strong graphic of converging lines.
The second, while OK, has too much on the right that explains the context to no great advantage while losing the graphic dynamism of those lines created by the roof and bottom of the rail cars. This drains the image of energy and looks blah compared to the first.
