Bad Cropping
 
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...74&key=7589930

This is a picture I took from earlier this year I worked on last night. Any way I can fix the cropping on this?

That's a very wide picture. I would add more foreground to get it closer to a 2:3 ratio, which should bring the lead engine closer to the top-left point of thirds.

The color seems slightly off as well...maybe a little too much red.

Thatnwas my first thought, too. Although I thought itwas too much yellow.

I would go the other way...tighter on the left and bottom. The fence on left and the road aren't helpful and the sky is nice...but don't take my cropping advise too seriously. I had four "bad crops" in the past week or so.

Yeah, that too. I think what I'm seeing is a little pinkish tone in the clouds.
