Here,at the border of the Big City,the rural life is still very present with fields,farm animals,crops...
Probably the passengers on this train would be surprised by the contrast of lifestyle they would see through their windows!

I like the subject and your positioning is very good here, giving you the opportunity to capture the contrast of subject very well, I like the framing too...
I would suggest using a smaller aperture than f/4 though in this instance and go for something nearer f/11 to get the buildings at the back sharp because these are part of what you are trying to get across here in terms of the city and country contrasts so it should all be sharp....also its a shame that the sky is blown out and there is no detail there. Finally it seems that the focal point is the clump of grasses at the bottom of the image, which at f/4, leaves the rest of the image on the soft side. I'd recommend paying close attention to the selected focal point in camera AF or manually selecting this yourself. Apologies if these effects were intended and this is just how it looks to me, I could be wrong....thanks for sharing.
