I wanted to try playing around with angles, and the rule of thirds. Still getting used to my camera. Im also just trying to show off my home town and the beauty of it in a more abstract way.

Use of camera, exposure & speed
Color & Lighting
I like the different colors and the subjects are interesting but just a bit busy. I like the reflection of the sneakers on the metal track.
The focus is a little distracting because your eye doesn't know where to go first. If the bottom was cropped a little the focus would go to the sneakers.
What is your point of view? If you want the sneakers to be the center of attention a smaller aperture (the widest, such as 2.8)would direct your eye to go right to the sneaker while everything else would be out of focus. Next time try using your aperture priority button.
The lighting is fine. I would burn a little on the top of the image between the legs & the train where it is a little overexposed.
Hi Robyn: I think this is a successful image. The subject, texture and details are interesting and creative.
How to improve your photo
Crop the bottom of the image an inch or two. This will make it a stronger photograph. Right now there is too much foreground.
Burn in on the top of the image between the legs and train where it is overexposed. You may also want to brighten the bottom of the train to see more details.
