Default I'm glad they rejected this one....

2nd rejection --

Because it was a quick recrop after the one I really wanted in was rejected --

I'm guessing I'm not getting the first shot in under any circumstance, which is fine. I have a mundane wedgie of the same train I'm working on now.

If I may..

I would crop off the top leaving the full string of signals and removing the dangling half sign and traffic signals above it. Crop the right side to the pole, removing the half signal and then even the left side removing the sliver of what's peaking in but keeping the full billboard and finally adding some road to move the train up the frame.

Joe, that's a pretty busy shot, both of them. The trailing unit is pretty obstructed too. Of the two, the first one is better IMHO.

Too bad you cut off the signals at the top. I think the flat expanse of foreground does not help you, it is like a big empty area in an otherwise busy shot.

Joe, isn't this like the 2nd or 3rd city-scene bridge pic you've had rejected? I think the last one you tried got an obstruction rejection. FWIW, I like them.

I had one rejected here before, but I can't remember what for and whether the shot eventually got in. This one actually did get in with some minor tweaks.

I like shooting here. Usually I compose the shot without the big billboard to the right showing, but since they changed it to Cook Out, I wanted to get one with it in this time.

Oh, by the way, Joe: http://www.nbcnews.com/entertainment...ion-2D11890690

16 suspensions? How can there be more than one? It's either suspended or it's not.

To the right? Is this how I finally find out I'm dyslexic on top of everything else!

That cook out place is pretty good, hoping we get one here eventually

Stage right (Joe treads the boards, I guess).
