Level, crop sky and right, brighten; attached is a quick take.

The composition is still not doing it for me, but the attached is better in my view.

In my opinion, less sky with 5:3 crop and some less right especially the black portion can work.

The filtered light is killing it no matter what you do. Kudos for not turning it your signature black and white.

Default Bad Cropping Again

Back with another photo for bad cropping. Its a PRR 5711 shot, so do as you want.


Anyways, looking back on the trip my photo's in Greenville were an utter disaster on my part, I thought with the person in the photo along with all the people waiting on the other side of the tracks, considering there was a large crowd it was a " smile for the camera " kind of moment. Too much foreground possibly?

Thanks for your opinions and thoughts.

Rejection is linked below.
