I see you have had the man communicating with you in a very silent but expressive way!
To my opinion, if the train was immobile you should have shot facing it straight opposite of you. It seems to be leaning to the right because you have shot ir from slightly to the left raising your camera upwards. I gather from the light on the man's hat that it was an overcast day. The sky (?) on the right seems bleached out and the shiny brass object seems to be diffused into the bleached sky. I think you should be playing and trying to adjust the camera yourself, try the manual mode. For a bright overcast day choose ISO 200, for a sunny day ISO100 and for a dark evening ISO400. Also, if you have software to manipulate your image, even something simple as Windows Live Photo Gallery, you can play with parameters and transform your image to black and white! Since your subject is an old train, think how did picture looked like back then and give your train a journey back in time! The man unfortunately won't look any younger though.

You've caught the driver brilliantly - it must have been early in the morning, he looks quite clean! Smile

My Mum was HURRYING US UP to get back to our car as it had started to rain so I had to take this quickly as we crossed the track on the way out without stopping for long !
