View Full Version : Bad Angle? Do you think this is a "bad" angle?

This photo was rejected for a "bad angle"

I actually pre-meditated this shot, and it came out just the way I thought it would. The intent was to show the curvature of the River Sub. and personally I think it is a dramatic shot.

What do you all think? Bad angle?
Oh, and Chris, would you have rejected this shot?

Too much dead space below the tracks and around the subect. If you wanted to show the curvature, let the train get closer and start into the curve closest to you. The lighting is also marginal as well.

Yes, I did reject it.

This photo is not any better than a ton of other front end shots on this site. This shot could have been shot anywhere because there is nothing to make it unique.

Here's another one rejected minutes ago. Reason: the so-called bad angle
CP operates a 4-6-4 steamer for excursion train. Steamers are so scarce these days that it makes this shot kind of rare.
Chris, what you have to say about this shot.
