Default Bad Cropping

Is there any way to save this photo without cropping out the supports of the closer (highway) bridge?

Thanks a lot.

I think you are going to have a hard time there, Fred. The bridge in the foreground is quite distracting.

Thanks a lot.
My opinion is that it can not be saved. The train itself it too small & insignificant in relation to the other objects (i.e. the foreground bridge) in the picture.
Nice idea, but I do not think it translated well.

Thanks,
Bill

I suppose if you appeal it you will get the ultimate answer. But considering what Bill wrote, there have been numerous shots lately which place farm equipment prominently up front with barely a hint of a train across acres of farmland.

I really like the perspective and the bridge "comparison."

True, but those shots have something to look at - a focal point, albeit nonRR. So the part that is interesting is easily visible, and then the train forms part of the scene.

This shot has a lot of empty space, bottom 1/3 is essentially blank. The framing of the bridge is sort of a microscope - go under the first, zoom in, the distant bridge does a bit more zooming, and you end up at the red spot in the middle. That doesn't work for me.
