Default Cropping for Future Reference

Ok I know its High Sun but for future reference what would I crop if the picture was in good light?

Don't center the nose of the train, instead use the rule of thirds. It would also help if you let the train come further down the tracks to you so you can show more of the train.

Hi Eric,

For the second one you would need to crop it something like my example below.

As for the harsh lighting conditions I don't think there is a lot you could have done to improve the shot.

Thanks for the info. Maybe sometime this fall, when the lighting gets better, after hunting seasons I'll give the location another shot
