Don't. It is too tight on the right and the left, and the ground is BORING. If you put it on the third toward the bottom of the frame, that's where it should be, IMO.

You are saying more on the right and left and put the train lower?

Well, sorry, not too tight, but more too centered right to left and it needs to be in the bottom of the frame not the top, I would think.

Heres my attempt Bob, removed noise, adjusted levels, contrast and sharpened slightly. Don't know if it's for RP but I like the result and cropping.

Looks washed out.

Something about the contrast doesn't look right to me.

Odd they didn't hit you with bad cropping on that one. The random branches poking in from the left side are a bit distracting. The clone tool would have cleaned that up nicely. Also, the speed limit sign is cut off...why didn't you include the entire thing?

Superb image, but I thought the same thing as Jim on this one.

Perhaps you can clone them out and resubmit?

I agree with Jim. Those cut off objects in the left part of the frame really jump out at you and are really distracting.

A quick re-edit would fix that.

I thought about widening the crop to the left but kept getting hit with many other things (bad cropping bad Q etc) on those attempts.

Yeah I did try wider versions was getting hit on cropping so I went a bit tighter...either way it is sometimes tough to navigate the rejection comments sometimes. But I am happy it got on I really do appreciate the input and the next big storm if there is a train around I will be out in it.

Thank you!

Congratulations on getting this one in and also hitting "Top of 24".

I figured that was going to happen.
