"loose" composition - again
 
Second rejection on same pic, first was size - submitted as 16:9 crop but they wanted 4:3 or 16:9... I figured it was wrong button or so.
ok, fine.
So, I went back and started over from the original, ended up with same basic crop and slightly different processing and resubmitted.
Now it's a 'Loose Composition' rejection.
Thought I has the face of the loco on the cross-hairs and relatively even space otherwise...

Please share your thoughts and suggestions.
(... and I will try to stay in my own thread this time. Even though it work out!)

Thanks - Jeff

Maybe take a bit off the left?
They may want you to take some off the right as well, but I would leave it. It tells more of a story, having other stuff under catenary towers designed for four tracks.

I like the shot, and hope you get it on. ALP-44s are good!

There's just too much on both sides. Try a 4:3 or 5:7 crop.

I think it may be tough to overcome the cloudy day dilemma.

If it were mine, I'd bring the right side into the wire making it exit the frame in the corner and call it good.

As far as cloudy day, I think there is plenty of of color left in the sky. It is certainly a cold overcast day but that's to be expected given the time of year the photo was taken. It certainly has a leg up on some blown out BNSF motors that just made the cut.

Best of luck to you. Given the coffin salesman's remarks, I wouldn't hold your breath for too long. haha

Oh the tragedy. I am to blame for this. My portfolio is mostly not so sunny photos. I have set a bad example. :D

Thanks guys, I have revisited this one and have resubmitted a couple times. both failures... BUT!
I looked back through my recovered files (these were on old hard drive had some issues and were the saved few) I actually had another similar raw file that had the full catenary to the right.
Had a couple issues with dark and color cast being off... I'm going to sit on it now and come back later and see what my eyes pick up before any further submissions.

Oh, believe it or not this is a full sun day! not a cloud to be seen anywhere. The sunshine and blue sky is more obvious in the second shot.

Funny, I don't recall taking simultaneous shots from two cameras but I did...

Anthony - crop off the tower? ouch, i'd rather let it live on Flickr.

Loyd - keep setting that bad example!
