Default Bad cropping, need advice

I can't figure this out: http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...80&key=9542155
How would you crop it? Is the train too centered? Should I take off the palm tree? Any suggestion is welcome, thanks.

Maybe a little less all the way around except on the bottom. I'd probably like to see more grass down below truth be known, if you have the pixels.

I think you're right, thank you very much, Joe. I'm not sure about the pixels either, I can give it a try.
Regards!

[quote=Holloran Grade;167090]Yes.

Ok, thanks for the advice. I cropped it the way Joe suggested and I had my two strikes already, I will submit that tomorrow. It worries me what would be left if we take the tree off.

(I don't know how to quote, sorry jaja)

I thought of that, I can shot it again with better light anyway. And maybe the way El Rocco told me to do it.

Thanks a lot guys.

Neat looking locomotive. It'll probably look great in full sunshine.

I submitted this crop today just out of curiosity; it wasn't that much better than the original anyway.

I will take Jim's advice (well, he didn't say that explicitly ) and shot it again. I will let you know. I had good light conditions just about 5 minutes before the train arrived; we all know that feeling

You were very helpful, the three of you.

Yeah, that color looks great in the sun. I hope you have an opportunity to redo that shot in full sunshine.
