Yes, this is great. Taking a photo from a fast-moving train always gives such interesting results, as you have here.

A well returned effect of speed, attractive obliques and colors, the set(group) gives a beautiful graphic image

Good clean lines and design, I'd hang it on a wall that's for sure.

@Curly: Thanks Curly - it surprises me sometimes when I see department stores selling prints such as this. Maybe I should cash in on it ^_^
