I say take a LITTLE bit off the right (up to the vertivcal support closeest to the edge of the photo) and top (to the top of the full pole) or appeal. I really like this shot, the idea, the subject and the composition. Hope something works I'd really like to see it make it on!

I agree with Andrew, it's a nicely composed and shot photograph. I'd try an appeal.

Only thing I can say is let the train get a little closer.

Before someone says it, yes, I realize it would put the power in the shadows.

BUT, think about creative use of available lighting, I submit to you a great shot from my good friend Peter Furnee in which he did just that.

Just some food for thought.

Bad Angle, my A--! Don't change anything, just appeal it.

You must have gotten a screener who feels that bridges are for railfans to stand on, not to include in the photo! Glad to see that someone out there understands that you put the bridge in the picture!

I'm sure the reason you included so much on the sides is the great fall color. Cropping tight will lose that. About the only change I would conceivably make is to crop out the outermost pole on the left side, since it's only partly in the photo. You might see how you like a 2:3 ratio crop, which is the standard RP aspect ratio. I'm not sure it's better, but RP might like it better.

My hunch is that the screener hit Bad Angle when he meant Bad Cropping. The train is too far away. Try a tighter crop and possibly one that excludes the sky. The colors of the foliage and the engines compliment each other nicely.

Yeah, those old country bridges are pretty neat when you find them:

I like the shot, and would take some off the top. The fall colors make the scene...

WOW!!!This shot is really very cool and catch the mind.If it will accepted it will get my vote for PC.I would say appeal it.The whole colours in the pic and the colours of the train included with them are very suitable.

We suggested Dave tighten the crop just a bit and resubmit. If he were to submit a crop similiar to Michael's edit, it will be accepted.

Thanks for the advice. The finished (refinished ?) product looks like this.
