Default Bad Angle

Wondering if I should try and make a case for this one or just stash it in the personal collection. Was trying to have the focus be on the name and logo going down the side of the locomotive than on the locomotive itself. I dunno, I kinda like the shot for whatever reason. Any comments and suggestions are welcomed.

I'm, kinda torn. It's great to go for something a bit left of normal. I've seen at least a shot or two when someone was standing on the walkway on, I think, an EMD SD series. Something similiar can work. Here, however, all I see is the lettering on the long hood, yet my eyes are drawn down toward the cab which tends to disappear into both the cloud cover in the sky and also into a sort of nothingness. The fuel tank is cut off, too, which is somewhat disconcerting. I'd say float it to Flickr.

My main complaint is that the white band dominates because it is so ,but it is totally bland. If you had access to a stepladder so as to get higher and move that down in the shot ... Interesting effort.
