Try to get rid of the dead space where the building's shadow is. That takes away from a lot of the photo.

Also, it looks like your photo is quite oversharpened (rough edges).

Perhaps if you could make the image wide instead of tall, that would help a lot.

Also: Don't know if it applies here, but screeners tend to not like the timestamp

You'll be wasting your time trying to save this photo and make it RP quality. I like the idea, but I suggest trying this shot again from a different angle. Try getting some of the bridge in the shot too. This is possible if you have a good wide angle lens. A head on shot containing the bridge and the tower would be a good start.

Yes, that too is distracting.

Rotate to the left. Tighten up on just the building and engine and go from there.

Neat location. I'm with Socal, go in tight on the tower and the engine. Shoot it vertical, or if more of the engine is showing, shoot it horizontal. Keep all that garbage in the foregound out of the picture. The shadows sort of hid it, but it looks like a garbage dump there. Turn off your time stamp!!

I've shot in a lot of dangerous weather conditions, and a lot of weird places and at odd times, but maybe you need to re-think this one.

I can see what you were attempting in this shot. Others have given some good advice. Perhaps shooting the LIRC instead of CSX? Don't give up, this reject shows you are trying to do more with your shots. And here is why:

You took a wedgie. Lots of people take wedgies. But you, instead of doing the same ole lame angle with nothing but the loco, tried to use your enivroment to the best of your abilities. Did the shot turn out that great? No. But it is a good starting point. Good luck.

Also, it appears if the camera (or manual settings) over compensated for the shadows which blows out the sunny area.
