Hi team!

In this particular case, would you add more grass or more sky ???

As usual, many thanks in advance for your guidance.

Looks a bit centered top to bottom, and even a bit "tall".

I assume you were trying to keep the tree in the shot, down to the grass but you don't actually need to.

I'd crop some off the bottom and then a much smaller amount off the top, and then, some off the right, but just the slightest bit.

Kinda surprised they didn't hit you with the angle rejection there.

Also, I probably shouldn't mention this, but is the train going away from you? Because I can't imagine the engineer looking through that curtain in the window.

Yes, the train was going away from me, but please don't tell the Screener .....

I think less sky/more ground would be cooler. But raising or lowering the train by about 1/3 seems like it could work. Then again, I like it just the way it is! Cool pic...

I like it better with a little off the top and a little off the bottom.

I'd like it even more if it was a side-rod "Crocodile" hauling vintage coaches .

But it's all nit-picking, isn't it?

I like the angle. There is something visually powerful about it to my eyes.

I like the angle also. I don't know if the dimensions would fly for RP, but I would crop the sky a good bit.

I like it as well, I was just warning him that a RP screener might have a stroke because that's not s typical wedgie angle.
