Thoughts on photo
 
Before I attempt at uploading would like to get your thoughts on this one is it too loose? Thanks guys and gals.

Definitely too loose, remove at bottom and at right so that the lead unit is much closer to the bottom right of the image.

Thanks, I may have a few more I would like to try but haven't picked up the camera lately. Too much same ol same ol!

Todd I agree with Michael, something like the attached perhaps? I also picked up on some CW rotation necessary (I did a full 1 degree CW on your original)? You may have to brighten up the nose of the lead loco as well?

UP_1995 01-02-2017 01:34 PM

I was thinking about your suggestion SAR but just didn't want too much rubble and didn't quite know how to crop. I am horrible with cropping I get it right or I got too much or too little.

UP_1995 01-02-2017 04:18 PM

How does this appeal minus the CW rotation? Do I need to brighten nose up more?

What ratio is that? Seems like it could be too rectangular for rp. Overall though that's more what rp wants.... I would add just a bit more to the right so the pole is not cut off and add just a tad to the left as well.

UP_1995 01-02-2017 06:29 PM

Its a 16:9 crop I am using Photoshop Elements as editing software. However I can adjust.. Not by much to the left as that's pretty much the edge of the pic. Will try and see what I can do.

On the 516 shot got it in Thanks gents-

Would like thoughts on this one Not sure if I got it straight enough with being on a curve.

Way unlevel. Rotate CW until signal pole on right lines up with grid., then recrop.

Also, take about five steps to your right so those two random weeds aren't coming up into the shot.

UP_1995 01-06-2017 02:32 PM

Cleaned it up some but would like a second thought on levelness, according to grid I about have it straight but always a second or third look would help.

Why is the color so bland now?

Why? It was a quick edit, I'll edit better but this was just to see if it was level . Nothing more then that.

If Jim didn't notice a level problem, you're good. Just to confirm, signal at right and windmill tower at left are vertical, so it's level and no lens distortion. Also good that you got rid of those distracting weeds.

Thanks if I recall, I had a spot picked but probably moved closer for a better shot but forgot to trample weeds down!
Just out of wondering would this shot get a awkward position boot ?

In my view the image is poorly composed. The nose of the train is right in the middle and everything of interest that is not in the middle is on the left side. Poor balance. If you can do a vertical, try that, otherwise what do you have to work with?

Not really much I will have to look in my photos I shot a bunch off as the train was coming around the curve but not really wanting to go back because county since has put tar on the bridge. Thanks again for the thoughts guys, I see I need to improve composing skills.

UP_1995 01-09-2017 01:17 PM

Is this photo really awkwardly positioned? If it is how can I fix it? I got rejected for nose light (fixed that)and now balance, but I just cant see it. If it is how can I fix this?

Too much dead space on the right - do you have a frame with the train close to you?

UP_1995 01-09-2017 07:42 PM

No I don't. Thats the last frame I did of this train. Probably forget this shot then? I wish the screeners would have caught the balance issue in the first rejected try, would have saved me a lot of time if the image can't be saved.

You should have waited until the train was farther to the right in the frame. Also it seems like screeners only give one rejection reason at a time.

If you want the shot on, you can get it on. If the issue is dead space on the right, crop right and top. You lose interesting details higher up on the silos but you get a shot of a train onto RP.

I don't disagree with Pwklsn's assessment on the train position, but I do get irritated with RP's compositional preference. Allowing the train to come through the frame farther does get the nose to a RoT position, but at the considerable loss of ground-level silo details. I personally am fine with and in fact shoot compositions where the train is positioned as it is here, in order to display whatever structural element exists in front of the train, as done here. I think the composition is fine as is; I might consider a different crop on top, perhaps keeping in a bit more of the details that are now not seen off the top.

.

Not necessarily. A simple 4x5 aspect ratio crop keeps most of the interesting details in. Those large silos on the right bring nothing to the party.
