Default No chance with this one

I went to Belgium today and was happy to get a picture of this rare piece of equipment.
But after a one hour battle me vs the screener(s) - containing to work and rework the picture resubmitting it and so forth, that's the result: 3 rejections and some broken nerves.

I think that the view angle is too bad, but otherwise I don't see more technical defaults in the picture.

I would say the main problem with the composition is the dead space on the right. Try cropping out the bushes up to the gantry, keeping the rule the of thirds.

Maybe go with your #2 as far as framing with the gantry, but do you have a shot with the train a little farther through? As I see it, it is heavy on the right with the nose at near center and everything else behind and to the right.

From 1 to 2, you crop on all sides. Try cropping only the right and bottom.

Links to queued shots don't work on the forums or in general on any computer where the shooter is not logged in; good luck with it!

My guess is that they just don't like the train being all on the right and they don't see the towers and cars on the left as providing sufficient balance. Oh well.

It is true that this railcar isn't very appealing at all. But would have been an addition to the database, as it is only rarely represented.

You could try a tight vertical crop.



Cheers,

Christine.

Hi Christine,
Thanks for the input, but its too late to change my opinion now. 4 trials on one picture with more than one hour computer work is more than I invest on most of my pictures. Vertical cropping is for me the very last choice.
Sorry, but I think I will remain there with this one.

No problem Kilroy1313 I guess you'll have another chance to shoot it sometime further down the track.

Cheers,

Christine.
