Default opinions on edits

Just looking for some feed back on a 2 edits I did, click for larger

Original right out of the camera


raw process and some color correction to get the smoke to really stand out


best attempt at back dating a photo, high contrast old style edit (wanted to look like a 30s to 40s era photo.

The edits aren't bad, but I'm wondering why you included so much ditch in the frame? I feel it would have been much more effective if you had just pointed the camera up a bit more to include the top of the smoke, and included very little foreground.

For whatever reason, I am drawn to the ditch more than the train

Train is a tad bit far away and the image needs to be rotated CCW.

To paraphrase the guys above me, work on framing and composing your shot out in the field first and foremost. Post processing can't fix that.

I hope you do not mind, but I've attached a quick crop that I personally think is much better. However, it still is a little bit unlevel. You probably want to get other members' advice though.
