How can I get this one to go?

Is the subject too low? Thanks for any suggestions.

I love it. It reminds of when the Hells Angels were in town, and I was letting them run the former WC Engineer Training Simulator, and the one Angel told me he was BNSF engineer out of Cali and the other on the former SP out of Truckee!

A bit off the right and top will help.

Really good, different shot. I like the human element, the color of the locos contrasting with the trees and the curving track.

I think RP wants the shot after you make it the best it can be.

"Bad Cropping" probably refers to the fact the aspect ratio is too square for RP's taste. Make it more a rectangle and you should be in.

Normally, an open loco door is an instant reject here but because of the crew, I think it works very well.

Good luck.

No spaces.

In this case, the photo ID would be 323206.

Not in my book, On a wide noses it kills the shot if it's moving. Its that simple, The herald isn't whole or seen at all.

Who cares? I would rather see an open door, adding the human element to a shot than another mindless posed/ wedgie.

Open doors are easy enough to fix in post...

Dennis A. Livesey 05-06-2010 05:04 AM

Generally, an open door on a depopulated or a moving roster shot is really detrimental to the over all mise-en-scène.

In other words, it looks like crap. Like mustard hanging off your face in a fine restaurant on the first date.

However, in Joel's shot the train is stopped on the mainline and the crew is on the ground. Now the door has a good reason to be open and we are interested in the scene rather than being annoyed by having the aesthetics compromised.

Apparently I got front page placement today (hitches trousers). I feel lucky when I can catch an image that tells a story, like that Rod Stewart song, ha! Thanks again for your suggestions Dennis and all. I changed it from a 5/4 crop to 7/5.

Door open is bad. Rods up is badder. The "Crapper is full" light being on is the 100% worst thing ever!
