The red X is too centered. Next time follow the Rule of Thirds.

There is the two shots guys, the first shot is pretty decent but the nose is dark, and the second one has too many distractions with the cars.

Hamlet got some "foreign" power. The second shot is a definite no-go. The first shot has too much sky, grass and room in front of the loco and not enough room to the left of the train. I'd crop something like this, but the nose light will probably kill the chances of it getting on RP.

Both shots are definite no no's, screeners dont care about power or rarity.
And even if it is foreign power, how would i tell, its just a odd angle of NS trash. Had you shot it passing the SAL SDP35 or the Hamlet depot (i dont know if that would be possible) then that wouldve been worth something

Shooting it with the SDP35 would be impossible unless the power went down the line to Cayce. Getting the depot in the shot may have been more possible, but not that easy. This is one of those areas that is great for sitting and seeing some trains. Not so great for getting good shots of trains. I need to get back to Hamlet as it's been a while for me.

Just checked. More than two years since I got a Hamlet photo accepted. Think I drove through in April, 08.
