Good shot and interesting dynamic in it. I think the lights at the bridge distract the attention from the subject away. But that's my impression, could also be wrong. I'm no expert for this kind of shots.

Not sure about the background. Would a platform, or something similar have been a better place to take this shot (don't know myself)? The background of the bridge doesn't quite do it for me, I think it's the lights. However, the movement is great and everything else is still nice and steady. Looks like a high speed train whizzing past.

I prefer the lights of the bridge, as I think it gives a context within which the speeding train can exist. Only thing I don't like is the title at the bottom - it distracts the eye from the rest of the image.
Great shot!

good shot but the black borders don't work in this case as they merge with the photo, particularly at the top. Try adding a white frame, or a white keyline and the image should stand out better.

Excellent! I'm really liking your shots from sheff at night, I think you have a pretty good flair for spotting that decent lighting.... Be nice to see more long exposure shots like this...

Top stuff though, made better by the "I've been there!" factor!

Hmmm...that's about how I remeber trains to be over there, or at least the one I was to be on. LOL (Sorry, only kidding)
The movement through the frame is really fantastic! (No pun intended.)

I walk across here every day, but not tried this since the days of grey trams. Better than my efforts, well done.
