Teach Me the Ways of Composition

Lots to see, and like here. I like the horizontal layer in the sky; it adds a different sort of perspective to the scene. Fine with me as is.

Color Issue

Strikes me that reducing the exposure slightly (darkening) might produce a better result. Toning down the highlights might help, also. Re "what the camera sees", the color metering is influenced by...

Curiosity

Re the picnic table, if it's possible to move it out of the way, I'd do that. But don't lose the Christmas tree in the window on account of the table, if it can't be moved! Might consider cropping...

Number is up

You might also try reducing the exposure to a modest degree (darker).

Zephry photo

Mitch:

Great job; the barn and the road's vanishing point do an excellent job of bracketing/framing the train.

This is an excellent photo, with lots to like, particularly the (railroad) curve at the right wrapping around the more rectangular structures at the left. It may not be "railroad" enough for RP; for...

Coaling tower-West Hamlin

Jim:

Never been there! Believe that Chuck Yeager, the first pilot to fly supersonically, was from either Hamlin or West Hamlin, WV.

Align with the building?

Aligning with the vertical/plumb line of a building is generally a good way to level a photo...but don't try it in Pisa, Italy, or a dilapidated shed that's falling down!

Selling photos

Isn't this saying, in effect, that a commodity will typically sell on price, while differentiated products (such as a Plowden photo) can have different attributes, including price?

So, all we've...

Poor lighting

Given the ambient lighting conditions, I think your shot is fine. I liked the mileage marker numerals on the pole at left, also.
