Really, Joe?

After all these years you don't instantly recognize a photo with a centered (top to bottom) subject?

If you don't have the extra that Loyd suggested, just crop to put the train lower in the frame.

Cool shot - good luck with it.

Maybe what I'm really missing is that it needs more, not less. I had recropped all sides but the right. Moving on to another frame.

Actually it's not vertically centered at all. It's sitting below center. I might take a little off the left, add some if possible to the right, take some off the top and a sliver off the bottom

No... not centered at all.

If Chandler Bing were here he'd say:
"I dunno - could it BE any more centered?"

Too much ballast on the lower right.

And centered.
