I'm sorry, but do you ever pay attention here? Notice all that blank dead space up there at the top. This isn't a shot that should be cropped vertically. Also, the signal growing out of the engine sucks. If anything, it should be a cropped down shot of the power under the searchlight cantilever.

Cool

To much sky, train too centered.

Zoom in, and get rid of all the dead space where nothing is going on.

Not sure why you are even asking this question, you know what's wrong

I didn't want to crop too tight since i don't have much wiggle room in regards to pixels. I'll try again, if not for RP then my personal collection. Still need to get down the vertical crop though.

Redo the shot. Next time, catch the lead engine under the signal and also step to the right a bit to avoid the pole in the background from growing out of the top of the train.

If you must stick with a vertical, then it would need to be something like this.

Danylo, looking at your stuff, you obviously have gotten a handle on the sunny 3/4 wedgie. Good stuff.

I can only guess you are trying to break out of that. This would explain the strange big head room with nothing of interest in it along with a signal growing out of the engine.

I mean what is the purpose of all that blue sky? You need clouds, a mountain, a big building, clouds, an airplane, SOMETHING to justify the use of all that space.

That is what I like about Facebook - the unlimited numbers of sycophants.

As it should be. No flowers and sunshine in this group. You want to improve, learn to take your lumps!

Yes.

Everything.

Agreed.

I prefer to a-s-s-u-m-e.

You didn't see the UFO up there?
