CSX Gevos with open nose doors really suck.

To be honest, the open nose door is probably the primary issue. There are certain screeners for whom that is apparenty a shot killer.

Poles and sand towers sticking up off the top of the locomotive. Photos are two dimensional so there is no sense of depth that you experienced at the scene. In the photo, they look like part of the locomotive. My 2 cents.

Yeah, it's essentially a roster shot, and as you probably know by now those have to have pretty much perfect elements. Your lighting is not that good on the nose, and if the door was closed you might get gigged for that, but it is the open door that shoots this one down. The other elements of the shot--background, foreground, and overall setting--are not helping either.

Default Thanks guys

I am drawn to the more urban-type settings - seeing the engines in a yard setting brings with it the challenges of poles, power lines etc.

Thanks for the feedback.

If that is what you are drawn to, fine, but then tell that story, show that setting. What you have now is a roster shot with elements of that type of setting encroaching in a distracting way.

Aside from the open door, I find the cropping a bit uncomfortable.

Boo to the GEVO haters.......

Volemort dislikes GEVO's too.

Out in the West in the L.A. Basin, on BNSF, GEVOs are all we see.
