John,

In the case of the photo you posted at the beginning of this thread, I might have moved to the right a bit and captured more of a side view of this train. In my personal opinion, the more head-on a train shot is, the less interesting it is. In this case, moving to the right and going wider would have decreased the emphasis on the problem areas, namely the poorly lit nose and the shadowed pilot. Honestly, I think THAT view of the train would get on here....at least it would if I were screening. But then I don't believe that all train pictures MUST have light on the nose to be interesting or compelling.
