Default Well, I tried.

Got a wild hair to submit a different kind of shot.... and it got shot down.

No harm. I do like it. I think it tells a story. If I had it to do over again, I would have lowered the camera a bit to get the top of the back shop in the frame. I'll keep it on my Flickr page.

Though not usually a fan of photographers being in the shot, I do think this is a decent one. Seems the biggest problem though is just that the train is too small compared to the rest of the frame...and the people milling about in front of it don't help either. Just my two cents though.

Ordinarily, when I click on a rejection thread, I sort of don't expect to like the photo I'm about to see. When I saw this one, my first thought was, gee, this isn't bad. I'm thinking that the position of the train in the shot is probably not optimal. Further toward the lower right "3rds" position would have been better. Not sure the distance is that big of a deal. It's hard getting a shot like this that really grabs people. The problem is that the "cats" in the photo can't be herded for a good Rule of Thirds composition. Like I told Bob earlier this week "ABNQ." Almost, but not quite.....I guess. Decent attempt though. Probably better than what I would have gotten.

Also I think Joe kinda hit on it, the shop building is cutoff plus so far back at the end of a parking lot not that distinct of a subject as much as the parking lot.
Like mentioned not a bad try.
