Default Any thoughts?

Not sure if this is the right forum but since I saw a few of these in here I figured I'd give it a go. Just wondering if this is worth my time to upload? If it is great, if not, no worries.

The cropping is a little tight for what the screeners seem to want. If you have additional space, crop wider and give it a shot.

Exactly what I was thinking.

They might think it's a little too heavy on the HDR look, but that's not a bad thing with this particular image, IMO. Aside from the tight cropping, the color and saturation look very artful.

Thanks for the replies all. I may give it a quick retouch and try it. If I recall from the original the milepost box is just out Of the frame on the left. I'm afraid that would kill it. I'll work on it and give it a go.

What's wrong with a milepost? Well, I don't know what you mean by "box". But I would push harder than the other commenters. The shot isn't a "little tight" or "tight", it is too tight!!! Not even close to what RP likes to see.

And, a lesson taught me by Mitch long ago. A steam engine makes steam and smoke, it has a plume. Don't cut off the plume. A steam engine in motion generally looks awkward with little space up top.

Yes it's way too tight, and rp is not a fan of the train being cut off as abruptly as here.
