Nice! 

 

It's been twenty-three years since I took the shinkansen from Tokyo to Kyoto to Osaka and back.

I remember it as though it were yesterday: an incredible ride, like flying on the ground. 

 

Thanks for the photo!

In 1990 I went from Tokyo to Hiroshima and back a couple of times, great memories.  This photo demonstrates some pretty major changes in design over the intervening 25 years! Thanks for the image, SRH.

This has strong possibilities for sure, but there is a little too much of the station and not enough of the train.

The essence of your subject matter is the sleekness of the flowing lines of the train(s); are there two?

Work with that quality and make the station recede into a background role.

This is very much a literal record of what you saw.

Make it more interpretive by exploiting the curves and sleekness in your composition and viewpoint.
