Default Is this worthy or not

This has a few obvious problems but chances like this don't come along often and had I known in advance I would have made sure I had a smaller lens available and a flash gun.

Is it worth uploading?

Thanks

Would anyone care to comment on why this thread received no answers.

Is everyone mystified or is the picture so bad that you are all dumbstruck that I would even ask?

thanks,

Chris.

I would say that with a little bit of work it ought to make it.

In-cab driving shots aren't that common, so absolute perfection may not be required.

I would lighten the dark areas a bit , darken the view through the cab a bit windows and rotate 0.9 degree CW.

Here's my quick rough 'n ready attempt.

Thank you both for your replies, they are appreciated.

Graham, that is definitely an improvement especially with the CW rotation.

Don't be too surprised or disappointed if it is rejected. The composition isn't that compelling. The person is facing away and it isn't at all clear what he is doing, and the red bar thing is big, in front, and distracting.

I agree that it could be better. This cab ride was unexpected and the minimum focal length available to me was 28mm (Crop factor x1.6). A wider lens allowing a shot of the whole cab would have been much better.. but in such situations you have to use what you have.... result less than ideal. I am still getting used to what this site likes and dislikes so your input on such things is really useful, thanks.
