Interesting compostion you have their. My guess is that if you would have been on the lighted side of the engine, that it would have been accepted. I do like the photo though.

Compositionally, it looks poorly cropped for this site, but almost perfect for a magazine cover where you could place a title above the locomotive. I'm not sure about being on the wrong side of the sun, that kind of takes away from it, too.

And it's cropped a little funny. Also, the powerlines all over the place don't help...

It is a intresting shot nonetheless, as it appears to be a local line I am sure you can go back at a later date and try again.

I once had a shot here with a stupid power line in the way and it got rejected so I then tried it again.

Unfortently, you can only shoot here around 2100 in the last bit of light in the longer days. And there were never any trains in this time frame so I only managed to get a total of two shots from here.

Anywase, if you can try repairing that one maybe crop the left side out.

How close were you to the train in this shot? That hrts the composition, but I always wonder how close you are to the train from a safety stand point.

Closer does not mean better in terms of railroad photography. A wide angle shot might be nice if you can do it, but in this shot, the power lines and the shadows probably would have hurt that shot too.

I would've been standing on the silver box to the left 1) to gain some height and 2) to get on the lighted side of the train.
