This is kind of neat, an interesting look at a railway engine from a boys perspective

Touching shot. Very 'Transportation Museum' kind of feel like they have out where I live. I remember climbing around old machinery like this when I was a kid and being totally in awe.

Mind the white reflection of the wheels lest they take on a look like white wall tires. One can adjust it down and with a little more color, and perhaps gradate it a little. The degree of contrast of white on a black field upstages everything else. The rule of thumb is that the viewer's eye goes to the area of most contrast. So if that's what you want, well enough. But if it isn't, you can make adjustments in any of your pictures regardless of what it looks like in the reference photo. You can 'orchestrate' it, as it were.

Anyway, overall it's a really cool image. Bravo!
