Comp/Balance Question
 
This photo was rejected for composition/balance:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=647414&key=0

In this case, does that mean I could try cropping it and resubmit, or is there something else going on? What part of the image is unbalanced in your opinion?

Thanks, Jim

I'd say crop tighter on the left.

Different strokes for different folks, Travis says some off the left, I would say maybe a wee bit off the left but the main thing is less on the right and less sky.

A crop all the way around, but mostly off the right side. and it's not level, Nice spot but the train is just to far back in your shot, Zoom in some.

Edit: Haha, looks like Chris beat me to it. I noticed that sharp curve, and figured a decently composed shot would be the result, if lighting was good.

Or you could always "Paulhamus it" and 'mash the curve:
