Poor lighting, the mile marker sign is unfortunately placed. Shot looks a bit over expsed and leaning CW. Not to mention that aforementioned face looking thing in the trees.

Could you share a 100% crop of the original file with us? Just a little square area around that thing in the tree would suffice. It's very peculiar looking and I'd like to see what it looks like enlarged a bit.

Disregarding the milepost, this photo could get on with some work. It needs cropping and contrast, and its overexposed. These items can all be fixed.

I'm not sure if the milepost would constitute foreground clutter or not. To me its part of the railroad, but I'm not a screener.

And we still need to know that they thing in the tree is.

Well, this photo proves that signs like that aren't considered foreground clutter:

And it really perplexes me why a photographer would wait until the sign is blocking the lead engine to take a shot when you have WIDE OPEN section of track just before the sign. Can someone explain the logic to me?

Because the sign places the image geographically as would a certain bridge, or a station sign or mountain.

Admittedly, mile post signs can be a bit more esoteric than buildings or bridges, but it does allow the viewer to instantly know where the photo was shot without looking at the caption.

At least that is why I include signs and MPs when I find them.

I would have composed the subject image differently to diminish the silhouette, but I don't think the inclusion of the sign is a detractor.

Next time I think you should "BOLD" such important information.

I suppose in the true spirit of this forum I should now ignore the above error and continue to argue my infirm position vigorously and insult Troy in the process.

I had a whistle post which just covered part of the plow of the loco get me a foreground clutter rejection, so your assumption is wrong. I cloned it the hell out of there and got it on, but I agree with your basic premise.
