Default How's this one look?

Last week I posted a picture of the end of one train and another on the main. I tried submitting another shot of it and it was rejected for backlit. What do you think of it?


Even if it doesn't get on I still like it and will keep it as part of my personal collection.

Not sure about the backlighting as the pilot is in the sun on the CSX unit, but the shot's a little too distracting for my tastes. Good effort on thinking outside (or in this case, through) the box though!

I think the trailer/flat car combo is too tight of a crop on the train in the background. Also, the angles are too confusing. Maybe straightening out the train, which is the focal point, would help the orientation of the photo.

Agree with what has been said. Backlit because the train in the background doens't have full light on both sides of the nose, and, perhaps more importantly, because the chassis of the trailer is backlit, giving a big black spot in the middle right. Hard to get light under a trailer but certainly sun coming over your shoulder would have helped, oh well.
