I have this shot of an Alco S1 being moved by truck. Take a look at the picture and let me know what should be done with it. http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=989691318 I have other shots, but i really wanted to include the truck and the engine.

The pole that is growing out of the Alco is really distracting. For me, it almost ruins the photo.

Other then the size dimensions (simply correct that when reediting in PS), the image suffers from a blue/purple tint. If you shoot RAW, simply increase the temperature or adjust the tint.

It's too late now, but I would've cloned out the pole as well.

Do you have one from taken from the back of the trailer? I think the sun angle would make the shot look better from the rear.

Bad Color and Size Dimensions are easy fixes. I agree with Chase and Lyod. The pole is placed in a really bad spot by the photographer. Additionally, shooting from the rear of the trailer would have put more emphasis on the loco, not the truck. That said, I don't mind the front angle, with the exception of that pole.

On second glance, the porta john and other stuff to the left of the truck distract also. Do you have a version where you stepped to your right a little, moving the poles and the porta john.
