I'm guessing a minor adjustment. just enough off the left to get rid of the evergreen, and a bit off the bottom

Pretty nice shot. Just strikes me as too wide - my eye is especially drawn to the right foreground, and that pole.

My quick reworking is one way to go. You'll likely figure out how to incorporate a couple elements I cut out (the crossing signal on the left, for example) next time you check the place out. I like the location.

I understand what Andrew is saying. Having a personal preference for including code line rather than eliminating, this is what I was thinking.

So there IS a way to cut out some foreground and left while keeping that pole and left crossing signal. (I would have seen that eventually. I think.)

The issue with my version will be that it is wider than 3:2. It is not as wide as 5:3, which in most cases is the limit on RP, but between 3:2 and 5:3 I think it is no longer a sure thing.

I like the code line left in, but I'm not sure the left yield sign is going to make the cut with the train placed in the frame where it is. Also, it's the back of a railroad crossing sign anyway. But somehow the placement of the sign facing us is bothering me caught between two engines. If you have a frame where the train is closer to you, this may work better in regards to issues with both signs.

Hmm ... well, tastes vary!

With respect to the two signs and the placement on the right, I happen to like that the lead engine is centered in between them, so the placement works for me. And the distance from the leading edge of the engine to the left edge is about the same as the distance from the trailing car to the right edge, which is a formula that seems to work well on RP.

I never even noticed the left sign is also a yield sign. I only noticed the shape of the crossbucks, which to me is nearly as attractive from the back as from the front, at this viewing distance.

I am partial to the codeline and both crossing bucks as well: hence the reason I shot the frame the way I did. I guess I'll play around with it and see where it goes. Thanks for the input gentlemen.
