I've always wanted to travel on this train (Istanbul to Tehran, right?), and the crossing of Lake Van must be one of the highlights of the journey.
I like this shot - the light is good, and the way you framed the shot from low down works well. I also like the contrast of the stillness of the girl with the moving figure in the foreground.
You could do with cropping the image along the right-hand side to get rid of that intruding arm and leg poking in over there, but other than that everything works well.

A fine POV adds sizes and power to the traincars. The two two children adds not only scale and human presence but also a dramatic tension as we sence a risk here. Nice handling of light. Very nice colorscale with a play on the dramtic reds.

Excellent shot showing combination of two trasport methods. Low and wide angle works well. Those people with reddish clothing match well with colour of the passenger wagons.
