A very well selling picture but at my last fair someone picked fault with it and I'm now interested in others comments.

I'm interested with what they picked fault with? I think it's a cracking shot. No critique from me I'm afraid. I like it.

Yes, I agree. You don't need critique. Stunning. I hope I can take a picture like this in future.

I am no railways expert but I think he or she considers the train on the left (which looks modern) spoils the picture. A tighter cropping (excluding only the left side) could eliminate the issue.
Like they say you can't please everyone all of the time, for me I think it's a great image, if I could take a photo half as good as this I would be well pleased with myself, simple stunning.

No technical data supplied. Was this shot on film and scanned I wonder.

Was the critique technical or subjective. The image is a fine railway shot with a lot of impact. My comments would be subjective, a bottom and left crop to shift the main part of the scene to the left and a cooler sepia. This is very warm on my tablet screen.

Shots like this will sell like hot cakes to the railway buffs because of what they are. Whilst I am not criticising your technique here, some very popularsubjects often sell well even with technical errors.

There are hidden shadows, the composition is only ok, lots of detail are out of focus BUT if it sells well so what.
