Default Poor cropping issues...

Thanks gang...

If the rest of a train was there I think it would work. I would like to see the top and left side cropped off.

I would crop some off the bottom, left, and a little bit off the right. It would put the lead engine on the right in the right hand third of the frame. while leaving the rest of the train in the second and scenery in the third. I'm not for cropping the top off as I like to have a large depth of field. It gives the viewer something to see, IMHO.

I see your point Travis...infact another eastbound train a few minutes later came by, was accepted into the data base...
