My bad... my work filters flickr. Where in Canada are you? I'm from the east coast.

Pros:
Good composition - The angles work really well in my mind. Some would say there is too much road, but I feel like the painted lines help add to the intricacy of the photo.

Cons:
Lets face it, we're here for critiquing, so I'll try to be detailed.
As far as the HDR processing goes, I feel like it's overdone. I'm assuming you're using photomatix, so I'll try and talk in that language. Bring down your strength & luminosity. It's almost like they're set on a value that would be appropriate for a sunrise, not for a scene with relatively even lighting. Also, your lighting adjustments a tad, the spread of light is blotchy.

Additional Thoughts:
This may not be what you're looking for - but perhaps a longer shutter speed would have been nice to get some motion blur in the train. This would take some work if you're planning on doing HDR, other than using a single raw. But hey, photoshop is fun.

PhD - I'm assuming this is a one shot HDR. Did you take it in RAW?

Yes I have my Canon XTi set to take everything in RAW and JPEG
