Default Crop Question

... Do you think I should crop the sky, and some of the centerbeams? Then resize closer to 1024 X 720-68?

I just resized the original.

I hope nobody is expecting some wood, Mazda cars, or Newsprint anytime soon :P

It would probably be a good idea to put more emphasis on the drawbar that has been pulled out, so this would require a tighter crop all around.

Reason(s) for Rejection:

- Bad Cropping: Most often this means that the composition of the photo is poor as it relates the cropping of the image.
- Undersharpened (Soft):
- Poor Image Quality

Is there a cable stretching between the two cars, or is that something behind the train (like blocking the road)?

Hi,

I went down to my straight stretch for an eastbound this morning and I thought I would give another shot. Last night while in Church an eastbound came and lifted everything but the two cars. The two centerbeams are both connected by a piece of galvenised steel. They are about 5ft apart from each other. Yesterday for whatever reason there was a cut of - 3 boxcars, 2 centerbeams, a boxcar, tankcar, autorack, and then 3 centerbeams, 2 connected with that piece of wire. The coupler is just held in my gravity by the looks of it.

Thanks for your help folks and thanks to the screener who accepted my photo.
