Default 0/6 Damn, but I think some are workable

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=859507&key=0

I thought this one would be ok because of the passenger shelter and the lights, is there to much dead space?

Not sure on this one?

Tighter?

Leveling issue, I'm trying to find something level in the picture. I thought it might be the signal, but it looks weird if I rotate to match the signal.

This was my first attempt at a "big scene" picture on the east coast. I think it's a clockwise rotation?

I'm not sure if the engine is too centered, or theres nothing on the right side of the engine.

Basically all of these shots have the train centered which is typically a no-no. In that way, all are workable using the Rule of Thirds. Take a quick walk through the database to see what gets in.

All cases: identify engines with RR and not just number. CSX is CSXT so CSXT 7707

1: crop right and bottom, brighten
2: crop top right bottom
3: might work if you crop heavily on the right, bit on the bottom. Next time let the train come closer. You need to work on getting the nose of the train off center, as Joe said.
4: not sure
5: yup, clockwise. Regarding the bridge, you are over 10 miles from VA 7 at that point and are also in another state (albeit that bridge does cross over to VA).
6: maybe you can get away with trimming right and some off the bottom

You have been submitting to RP for a while, you have appeared in the forums many times, you need to get it in gear, get with the program. Go through RP shots more carefully, get a sense of how things are done, read up (again?) on rule of thirds, avoid centering the nose.

I am trying. I do feel like I took a big step back with these images. Hopefully it's just a temporary set back.
