Default Does this look strange?

Hi Everyone,

I was wondering if I should bother to submit this photo. I really liked the angle it's just that the photo seems...odd...I guess. It's attached. Anything I should do differently if I reprocess?

Thanks,
Jim

It's not cropped really that great; the train is very centered along the very top of the shot. The flowers on the right are more a distraction then an addition to the photo, IMO, and I think that you could probably get the lighting better. PC.

Thanks Carl. I was on my way home from work and I heard the train. I decided to head to a new location to shoot, not realizing that there were weeds and flowers everywhere (didn't have my trusty ladder). So next time make sure that it's fully sunny out (the sun was filtered by a light cloud), use more of the rule of thirds, and get a better flower setup, not a last second setup (like this one was). Oh and get a better camera next time (Buying an XT soon!).

Thanks again.
-Jim
