Default I like it, but...

I really like this shot. I don't think its unlevel, the level part of the shot is the bridge, which is what i used to level. First time it got bad cropping.

Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

too much sky, too little foreground, bad cropping

caption reference to "slain brothers" is confusing since one cannot see the units in question
