Default Your comments please.

I have a shot that I like, but it's a scenic and the train is quite small in the image. I've been wondering if I should upload the original, or a tighter crop. Your suggestions would be appreciated.

I like it a lot. But then, if everything I liked made it past the screeners, I wouldn't have so much experience getting over rejection!
I'd say give it a shot. That sky and it's reflection is nice.

Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Incredible shot(s), you got me stumped on this one. Each crop has its strong points. Personally, I don't mind the train being small especially in this case with such a strong reflection. They way you croppe dit close though made a very nice frame around the train which I am also a fan of. I think I'd upload the vertical with the trees included. Nice shot, again!

Well, I think I'd go the other way, though it's a VERY close call.
I think the horizontal shot will be better recieved.
I see your affection for the mirrored tree in the veritcal but the effect of the "other" mirrored part of the image is lessened. On the horizontal, the mirrored tree gets lost, but the mirrored trackside trees and train are much
more pronounced. Also, there is a bit less open blue space, top and bottom.

Nah... I like the vertical.
: P

It looks complete and not cut off.
So, just take the comments I made as observations.

See ya in the queue.

You guys are a lot of help!

I have the same problem, I think I like the vertical better, but the horizontal is perhaps the better train picture for RP. Maybe I'll toss a coin!

Thanks!

Michael

Oops. Forgot to give opinion as to which I liked better. Sorry.

I like the vertical, just because that sky is so nice.

For RP, yes. For other viewing purposes, no. That better !
