Default Whats a good angle?

The following picture was rejected for bad angle.

So my question is what is a good angle? We don't have any hills here in Indiana, and most of the shots will be looking up.

That's a tough one, there-

I'm not sure the angle rejection was necessarily that it looks "up", becuase that seems OK to me. I like what you're going after, but the angle of the light on the train is not quite right. There may be too much shadow on the nose.

If it was coming from the other direction, things might have worked out. Try it again when/if one comes the other way!

I've had rejections for the same deal. It seems that the looking up shots are tougher to get on the site. And yes, the lighting may be a little off, but as far as the angle, I don't know. It's probably one of those things that if you were standing two feet that way or two feet this way, something would have looked just right. I see where you were going with the shot, though.

I agree. The nose is a bit dark, also, the shot appears heavily compressed. It's a great shot, but that danged bad angle rejection got the best of it.

I don't thing that "looking up" is a problem, as much as the tree and the guardrail are. With the two objects you want to highlight being the engine and building, try to keep other objects hidden or very small.

Thanks for the input guys. It was a grab shot, and it was the my best shot of the day.
