Balance
 
Im not sure waht makes this off balance.

I tryed to keep the rule of thirds in mind. How should I set up a shot of the station?

Although the structure IS interesting, it's still heavy on the right.

I guess I look at shots like this one and Im just not seeing the Balance issue.

To me the accepted shot has a little more interest. There's a nice focus (Compositional wise, not camera technicalities) within the image. In the rejected shot, I don't know what to look for.

I would suggest backing up 1-200ft to make the depot less prominent next to the train.

Thank you for the help. JT gave me some tips also.

Got this one :-)

Much better shot with the whole station visible and some breathing room between it and the train.
