Default The tightest crop I can imagine worth adding

I recieved a composition/balance rejection for this photo:
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...key=1007176377

Which is absolutley right! But still I believe as there's no other way of capturing this place - even capturing anything on this street - and this is a really interesting site from an interesting and underdocumented countries farthest region it should be considered being added to the database.

What do you think about it?

Don't play the " This should get on only on the basis it's from an "undiscovered" place" card. Also......it's a bit too crowded/cut off/bad angle/ etc.

There are quite a few places that don't photograph well, it's something we've all got to live with.

Takacs, with all due respect, no insult intended, I simply do not believe you. I do not believe that this is the best possible composition.

Can you not find a spot where the train is not obscured (such as getting on the other side of the bush on the left)? Or time the shot so the structure is not obscured? Or the angle such that the nose is not exaggerated?
Shooting from the other side of the street might make more clear the relationship between track and street.

BTW, I am accustomed to "street-running" meaning that the track is actually in the street and not adjacent to it. Although, I suppose, the "street-running" in Ashland VA is actually tracks that line in-between opposite (and separated) lanes of road, but not in the lanes of traffic themselves. Trains do run right down the traffic lane in West Brownsville, PA. Both USA examples.

Interesting, as I poked around, to my surprise I found another shot of the same engine (different town)!

Dude;

I've never been there, and I can almost bet ya that you could smehow back up down the track and get away from that tree. Maybe even shoot head on. We all have angles and places that are not great for shooting. We have to decide whether we let it be and try harder. There has got to be another way. If not, then this location ain't getting on RP.

Crop vertically, making sure to get all of the engine and the church steeple in, then try again.
