Default Cropping a Roster

Yep - for sure a roster type but any ideas on cropping a single like this?

You could either go tighter to really make it a roster or looser to make it an engine passing through the scene. The cropping here is between those too.

In this case I'd opt for the tighter crop to lose that wire running trough the top of the frame.

Not to muddy the waters, but I'd go the other way if you can -- looser.

Additionally, the photo is a little oversharpened, noticeably on the handrails of the locomotive and in the power lines in the sky.

Default Thanks

I'll try opening up a bit and rework the sharpening/contrast a touch.

Thanks,
