Default Pointers please

Just wondering what the problem is here, my guess would be that it is either because the first coach is cut off or that there is too much/little space in front of the locomotive.

Any thoughts from those more experienced with this site would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Locomotive is too centered in the frame and it's also too tightly cropped.

I don't really like the way the passenger car is cut off. Could you get a crop with more on that side? My 2 cents

Thanks Gents,

If too tight a crop is the problem, I can use a different frame with a wider view showing more of the train.

Thanks again.

It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

I guess your cat is better educated, at least it put a couple of vowels into Issaquah!
