You want to use a reflection to show us a picture within a picture. First and foremost the mini-photo you show us inside the reflection should be RP worthy by itself.

Spare us the ugly power lines, and show us more of the interesting veg in the foreground. With a better composition, and more contrast, I could see it in the db.

Now if I can just find someone to take my Canon 16-35, 24-70, 35, 50, and 70-200 off my hands I can finally switch to all Tamron glass!

If you anticipate only shooting in bright sunlight for the rest of your life, by all means, buy this lens. I would recommend saving up for the 70-200 f/4 L. Its a cheaper version of the mainstay...

In the 2nd reject, i like the two guys standing in front of the tank car. It adds perspective to the size of the derailment. Again, might work if you shot tighter, or have the resolution to crop in....

Did you shoot anything tighter? With a longer lens? Sometimes shots don't materialize in visual locations, and there's nothing you can do about that. I don't know if you have the resolution, but I...
