Depends on what you want to accomplish. You could have gotten yourself at less of an angle to the train and zoomed in a little. If your intent was to get the whole train in the frame, you could not do it from the angle you are at. Zooming in at your current position will cut off the end of the train, which isnt necessarily a bad thing, but it depends what you are trying to accompish. There is just too much sky and booring foreground as shot.

The image quality looks iffy to me. But nice catch with the SD75 Warbonnet (and H1 Dash 9) on a coal train!

If you prefer that angle, I'd have to say include more foreground and less sky. There is just too much boring, cloudless blue sky in the picture. You probably only want to include a decent amount of sky when there are interesting clouds, or some other out-of-the ordinary, interesting aspect too it; plain blue is a bit boring :P
With all that said, I think it'll be a great shot when better cropped.

Yeah less sky. Think about it, what is more interesting... the foreground or a plain blue sky? Try and crop down the sky then try it again.

Realistically that photo does not fit well with the rest of your RP portfolio.

With the right cropping id be happy to have it in my portfolio, the coal dust coming off the cars makes for a cool shot.
