Just a word of advice...

When you come upon a scene like this, fire off as many shots as you can. Then you would have had a shot where the train was just short of being obstructed by the car.

This is a cool scene, so I hope you say, "I DID! Here I'll show you!"

Jim's right. This is a composition issue as well. If you have a shot where the 211 is not being blocked by the hot rod/cross buck, you'd be much better off.

If you do have a shot like that, it might be better to crop some off the right. It looks like you were trying to keep the flag in the shot, but it's a little too small to be a major player and the Silverado and Grand Prix don't add alot to the shot...

Ahh, now I see why the other one looked familiar to me. I saw that shot earlier and liked it. Good catch.

Notice the crew is more interested in the rod than anything else.

If you had waited until the 211 was just six or eight feet to the left, you would have had a real winner. The train crew is checking out the hot rod and the 211 is carrying marker lights (not class lights), showing that it is the end of a train. Not something you see very often. You might try tightening up the shot a bit by cropping on the right and the bottom. It won't fix the obstructed loco but will make it a better shot. You might give it another try, it's still an interesting shot.

Why bother reuploading the original if you haven't improved upon the reason it was rejected in the first place?

Unless you have amazing clone stamping skills, there is no way that shot ever will (or at least ever should) make onto this site.
