Default Three for review

Soft:

Not seeing it, though it could be a monitor setting issue on anyone's end (it does affect what others see).

Composition (Balance): http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...72&key=4147694

Maybe? 113's nose still rests on a border of thirds. It's not perfect, and I could 4x5 it at the expense of the Minersville sign.

Clutter (Foreground):http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...73&key=6690909

I'm assuming this is over a PRR milepost marker that I wanted as part of the image. I personally don't find it detracting.

#1 Yes, the geep is soft, and it's easy to check. Make a copy with more sharpening and click back and forth to observe the difference.

#3 I have to agree with the screener on this one.

#1 I'm pretty bad at judging sharpness, but if you get the rejection, sharpening some more and resubmitting isn't hard. Hard to say if it will get on due to the lighting though.

#2 I like the composition, something different than your standard wedge. Might need some local contrast or exposure adjustments though.

#3 I have to agree with screener/mining camper, the way the milepost is situated in the composition doesn't work for me.

1.) With my eyes, don't trust me on sharpness. What I see is suspect lighting and the background is blown out. The pan looks nice though.

2.) Do you have a frame where the train is closer to us, but still not obstructed? I like the idea, just not this frame.

3.) I'm not feeling this one. Sorry.

#1 I've bumped the sharpening and toyed a bit with the exposure selectively.

Unfortunately, no. I had another railfan immediately to my right (whether they had the same idea or not, I don't know) and would have had to push them out of the way (rude!) to get this same framing with 113/115 closer to the lens.

#3, in general, is just going to stay in the realms of Flickr. The NS PITL guys like it. I have a second edit of it that's more cramped on the left, but that won't solve the MP 242 marker.

I meant another frame set up exactly like you did here but where the train is closer. you wouldn't have had to move.
