Composition Suggestions
Hey all,


Got poor composition on this one. Personally I think it looks nice, although I'm thinking cropping off the top and right-hand side a hair would be the best alleviation to the "poor balance". Anyway, any suggestions are welcome!

Probably some off top and left. That should un-center the train.

Also, and this is completely up to you, but I'd move the watermark to the bottom somewhere.

That watermark is just plain stupid, truth be known. As for the cropping, take a lot of the top and then some of the right. If you have a later frame, I think that one would be better.

Yep, way too much sky. It does not add to the scene IMO.

Seems very dark to me, too.

Really, you should have zoomed in more to cut off the building but keep the stop sign and keep the train where it is at. I'd also have included more on the left

Agree with Joe, my take. Cropped, adjusted levels and contrast work from original for better results.
