All of your subject interest is on the left side of the photo (tunnel and Amtrak.) The hill side on the right doesn't really add much to the photo IMO. Do you have more on the left in the orig. to move everything over? I'd say crop off the right side, just barely getting rid of the entire green foliage draping down over the ledge, and keep what you can of the greenery to the left/below it. Crop bottom to keep your aspect ratio if you can't add to the left, but watch that you don't get too tight. If so, you may need to add a bit back onto the right.

Try a crop that follows the Rule of Thirds (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_thirds)...

If you're an employee of CSX, I'd adjust the shot as recommended, and resubmit. If you're not, I'd suggest not re-uploading the photo, as that's 1000% trespassing from that spot. CSX agents keep a close watch on the website, and that's an impossible shot location to explain away as an accident.

Good to see another photog from Southern WV though. If there's anything I can do to help, let me know.

Thanks for pointing that out to me.

I didn't know.

BTW, 1000% trespassing, Does that mean I am trespassing 10 times at the same moment?

If you could clear that up for me I would appreciate it.

Have a nice day.

I deal with alot of stupid people, and sometimes 100% doesn't click in their heads. I always use 1000% when I'm wanting someone to understand how important the message is I'm telling them.

There's plenty of better tunnel faces to shoot in the area than that one, so good luck.

I work in retail management, that's the part about dealing with stupid people. I didn't imply the statement to include you. And yes, to reference your next post, if you get caught on CSX property by a CSX agent or they can investigate and prove you were on their property (aka your photo) they will arrest you.

Yeah, CSX doesn't appreciate trespassing too well.
