Default Thanks for the feedback

Ok, you're right that some of my comparison shots are not in the same league. I selected the comparisons for "recentness" of the photos and not on the basis of exactly how similar the angles, lighting, etc. were.

But, moving on from that avenue of argument...

Yes, the shot needs to stand on its own. Good point.

Yes, the boat is what makes the shot. I have other shots of the same train where the cab is not obscured, but the boat isn't there.

Other shots of this bridge have been accepted (both sharper angles and more perpendicular angles), but shooting this scene from most any other vantage point relative to the boat would not have caught the boat's spray tail.

I'll think about it some more....
