thar she blows!

thar she blows!A nice shot, quite dramatic with the smoke coming out of the funnel (if that's what it's called!) contrasting nicely against the sky. You could perhaps bump it up half a stop without losing that impact.

With respect to some of the manipulation, across the house it's slightly patchy in the blur - the right hand side of the house is more blurred than the left hand side.

I'm personally not convinced with the ragged edge effect. I don't think it adds a great deal, and in a sense spoils the crop with the front right bumper thing missing a chunk. You can tell I'm not a train fan I guess!

OanaNice natural looking pose that the model has with a touch of an enigmatic smile which I like, but her face is lit a bit too harshly for me. What lighting set up did you use? It looks from the shadows like 2 undiffused lights either side and behind of the camera; one diffused side light may have worked better, perhaps with a reflector, and not washed out her face quite so much. Also, a slightly shallower depth of field would have thrown the background foliage further out of focus and helped to concentrate the attention on the model's face.
