John Chapman 2
Much as I love US stuff this is little more than a couple of Big GM jobs with a guy riding on them. The picture does little for me I'm afraid, with few outstanding characteristics. Also the sky is covered in dust marks. Sorry, thumbs down from me. (Bob Avery)

 

Perhaps tighter cropping would increase the impact. (Ian Cowley)

 

This isn’t much more than a traditional front threequarter shot with rider. The leaning pole doesn’t help and could be removed. (David Flitcroft)

 

Not a lot going for this, especially as it is not at all clear whether the man is a crew member, or just a posed photographer. (Martin Higginson)

 

A powerful enough photograph but not particularly pictorial, it all looks a bit posed to me (Geoff Dowling)

 

An ordinary picture lifted by the railway worker riding the front of the train. Use of colour lifts the black and white scene with his orange T Shirt! (Jonathan Cordle)
