Lovely shot. But I think it would have been better using a wider aperture.

We have a very healthy SJ locomotive which operates regular services here in the south of the Netherlands. Hope this one eventually looks as good.

Thank you all for your comments!
at szgabor Dont you think using a wider aperture would have overexposed the clouds?

I understood that if you would have used a wider aperture and a shorter exposure the background would have been blurred a bit and the locomotive would have stood out more.

Thanks! Now I see your point! Yes, I agree. I'll try that some other time, it's 450 kms away from home, and I don't travel to Orsa that often.
