Default Which way to go? Left? Right?

Got this one rejected for bad crop.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=829221&key=0

I want to keep the rock wall in the photo, but and the shadowed tree in the foreground, but something tell me, i might have to lose the tree on the right to make this acceptable.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Tom

A bit off the top and right side and left as the train is to far down and don't center it. Or like this? i know its not what you want but this will get in i think.

Hey Tom, I told you before I love this shot. For RP's tastes though, I think it's too centered for them. Gosh, I love the tree too. I know you love the rock face, but I think the tree does more justice than anything. I'd work with the tree and put the rocks on the afterburner.

Richard's crop works well, but it's too bad you didn't take a few steps to your right to incorporate the shadowed tree a little more into the composition.

Ben,

Thank you. I just worry that if I crop the rocks out, it wll be very unbalanced. Jim, I had shot Amtrak about 150 feet to the left seconds before this train came around the curve, so i didnt have much time to set up my shot.

Got rid of a little bit from the top and left, was able to keep the rocks and the tree.

Looks good. I'm glad you were able to keep most of the shadowed tree.
