Default Need Cropping Advice

I tried framing the train with a post and table just wondering what your thoughts might be

A "frame" needs to be at the edges. The lamppost is between the caboose and the train, so you need to pick one to be the subject of the shot and "frame" it.

You also have a big depth of field issue with this shot.

I agree with Don, it does not work. Besides not being at the edge, the frame is a big mass of blurry, and thus unappealing to the eye.

I would focus on mastering the technical aspects of lighting, exposure, etc before starting to get artsy.
