Default Simple shot

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...36&key=9941736

Might have been the fact that my eyes were a bit heavy and tired, and got into my old habit of processing photo's after a 2 day across the state trip. Distortion perhaps? I'm amazed at how much 24mm distorts on the 24-105. I'm on the fence with the cropping. Looks ok to me, but I'm guessing get rid of the left hand side a little more, and the bottom? Thanks in advance!

Ben

I'm not amazed. I guess I find it pretty average, actually.

Anyway, CW and crop a little tighter.

I'm going from a 10-22 on a crop body to the 24-105 on a full frame, I'm not to keen into the whole technical aspects of that, so I dunno. I'm in dark territory when trying to understand it

Ben,

It has unusual balance. That by itself is not necessarily a bad thing. But a screener clicking rapidly through submissions might not realize that the objects on the left tell the story as well.

I do think you should shave a little off the left. Maybe right at the 2nd light post? In the comments, I'd try to make it a little more clear that the objects on the left are part of the Mon River Dam. That could explain why it is included in the shot.

You may want to shave just a little off the right as well.

Had that train at work last night. The 3rd unit was QGRY by the way.

Good luck!

Maybe pan back and widen the shot, so the whole picture looks a little more balanced with the train not being such a large influence.
