Photo 1: I'm sure they think the train is too centered. I would either loosen the crop or, if you have the pixels, zoom in to remove the left crossing signal/gate.

Photo 2: This one looks a bit horizontally-centered to me. The train has to go up or down in the frame (just a little bit).

Photo 3: If you want to include the signal in the shot, you would be better off by not cutting the top of it like you did. The signal looks more like clutter to me than a part of the scene. I would reshoot with less zoom and perhaps a vertical would work nicely if the signal is pretty high.

Hi!

OK this may sound really silly...or stupid...I been shooting trains since 1981 and I am just now reading about the 2/3rds rule. I always knew to try not to center a subject but I found it on a discussion on another thread on this board. I applied it and got one in.

One thing I REALLY like about RP.net is the fact I am always learning...

I think I got enough to work the others. Thank You.
