Default Train to small PEQ?

Was expecting this one might be a tough sell, didnt think PEQ, maybe bad cropping, but what do you all think?

It's a nice shot of the building... I think for your purposes, you need to go back at a time when the entire bridge is in sun, and aim the camera to the left, more towards the brdige.

Maybe could you try a vertical crop with the train toward the bottom. I don't know. It looks like it'd likely keep the feel and get by.

That's the Merchandise Mart. At one time it was the largest building in the world.

I would try a vertical crop, but I am afraid it will lose a lot of the great architecture. Maybe experiment a little.

Maybe try tighter on three sides (not the bottom) before trying vertical. I'd lose the sky to the top of the smallest (in relative terms) building.

Lightbulb What "I" Think....

Pan out to get more of the bridge on the left side and wait for the train to get further across and then grab it.

That way there would be more of the railroad element with a good view of the building facade.

I obviously could not get any more of the bridge in the shot as evidenced by that big shadow. It was a 2 car train so wouldnt have helped anyways.
I may try some minor cropping, I dont really want to loose too much of he buildings, if I crop alot off the top I loose the glass skyscrapers. Ill give it another shot I guess.
