Can I get some thoughts on this? I honestly don't think the framing is a flaw here since all the what would be dead space is filled with fall color.

Hi Will,

Honestly....I do think you need to do some heavy trimming on the right. If there were lots of brilliant trees lighting up the right side of the image, I could see leaving some of it, but even then, the frame would look lop-sided. I'd go with a much tighter 4:5 crop, or something like that.

Not to mention the tall grass poking up on the left and fouling the front of the loco. Rip that stuff out before shooting!

I'd crop it as a vertical. Get rid of most on the right side and a sliver off the left, so the track is coming towards you about in the middle. That would help it lead the eye into the frame.
