"Clutter": junk, wires, poles, signs, weeds, vehicles, gawkers, big watermarks, etc.
Bridges can obstruct, but I would never refer to one as clutter! :lol:

A couple other Henschel two-footers in the USA. So much fake about these, but I would still have taken some pics.

Typical Maine tourists probably thought it was "cute"! And how many kids would know the difference?
Oh, now I need to see this Henschel thing!

On the other hand, if it was a Maine two-footer, acceptance would have been...

You would need to do a ton of shadow recovery to even see that it's the Jersey Central unit. But that reveals the flare from the extreme backlighting. I don't see this being accepted here. :(

Departed???

As for the pic, I'm thinking perhaps I might like sharp city lights with the train blurred.

I'd like to see some of whatever was behind the engine. Also a sharper Sears Tower (or whatever they're calling it now). Why not re-shoot this?

Sharpness: make a copy, add more sharpness, compare. If undesirable artifacts appear, it's too much. When in doubt about any edit, it's good to set it aside for a day or so.

If this was a wreck, it would be accepted so fast that heads would be spinning!

Coverage of a newsworthy event need not be art gallery quality IMO.
