Default Some Bad Cropping

What is wrong with this shot? I don't see bad cropping on any side. Thanks!

Too much ground, maybe not enough sky.

Less ground, more sky and you cut the train off mid-car on the left side.

Well I took your advice and got it in. Thanks guys!

Wyatt-Tell me about it! I got there to late, as it was leading nose-first before right before hand. In order to get onto the BNSF, they needed to run around the train, and the 8098 ended up facing LHF. The next day was the killer though, as both this unit AND the Erie unit (as a DPU on a coal train) met each other on a lightly used coal branch. Then the Conrail led its train out in great light. I'm so mad I missed that. Both are still in the area. The Erie went to Indiana and back and the Conrail is somewhere around here, but I doubt I will be able to shoot either.

The worst part was that I when I was shooting the shot above, I was with a couple of other railfans who I knew. They all got to chase it the next day, so now I get to know that I missed this:

I've always thought this was called vertically. Looking at the vertical dimension, the train is roughly halfway from the top, roughly halfway from the bottom, so centered vertically.

The train stretches across the frame, so by my use of horizontal centering, there is no issue!

Hmm...I've always considered something that is dissecting a frame horizontally as being horizontal. I could be wrong though as I may be looking at it from a different perspective.

Yeah, I'm in the same camp as Janusz on this one - to me, the train is centered on the photo's vertical axis. Can't really say I have a problem with it, though, I think the photo looks good.

I've always read and heard it the way you understand it Jim.

Cast my vote for vertically.

As for the centering, that is what I was trying to avoid on the first go around. I centered it vertically on the re-crop and it got in-almost like some reverse RP logic! However, I don't think the accepted version is out of balance, and I actually like it better than the original.

I think we're gonna have to agree to disagree on this one, Jim.
