Bad Cropping
 
I typically think of cropping as one of my strong suits, but, apparently, not so much on this series.

1.) http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...00&key=5746952

2.) http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...16&key=4202305

This is actually a reshoot because I was tired of the Bad Cropping rejects on the first version. I had to shoot "head on" here because of the sun.

Your caption would have been more effective had you said there were two women around the Johnson.

:lol:

What Jim said.:lol: Try cropping the ugly section of the shed off the top down to the pipe and get a whole post bottom right. Just my thoughts.

I think the cropping is as good as you're going to get. Cropping the top leaves the subject swimming into a black void with no definition of the shed that's causing the shadow.

If you're OK with another reshoot, suggest maybe a higher elevation, and more to the right so you can separate the space between locomotive and shed.

I agree with this guy, I dont know why you chose that particular angle.

I'd take some off the left and a little off the bottom. Also fix the lean.

Had to. Sun was straight on. See my first post.

Do you have more of the beige siding on top to pull the dark area down off of the edge of the photo, and to also give more of an industrial height to the photo? I actually like the sides as-is unless more will work with adding the top if it's there.
