7 Day Viewing: Composition

Captured this shot of a whitetail buck darting in front of a CSX intermodal train, unfortunately, nature didn't cooperate and time things right for a perfect composition. While it doesn't follow the...

I like what you're going for, but agree with the same reasons Doug posted above. If it were me, I would also crop out some more of the bottom of the frame. That's just me though.

I've had about 50/50 luck with appeals, Probably have appealed around 15 images, though I haven't really kept track. I have only gotten a comment once on a rejection.

I definitely like what you're going for here, and the building is very interesting, but I'm not sure this particular execution works.

Personally I care less about what it looks like coming out of the camera, I think it's more about what it looked like in person and how well the final image (edited or not) reflects that.

I think if it was just outdoor shop materials then the foreground rejection would be baffling, but with the rail/wires/and pole sticking up right in front of the unit, I agree with the rejection. I'm...

Agreed. If you have some more to add to the right that could also be helpful.

Thanks for the feedback so far. He's selling because he bought them but never really used them, no time to railfan with his new job. Haven't discussed a price yet so we'll see. Just wanted to know if...

I agree, that's possible, but there is also a rejection for trespassing that can be used if that's the primary reason for rejection.
