Too much is cut out. It is an uninteresting photo. Maybe if you had more of the controls it would look better but this shot really does nothing for me. But thats just my opinion...

I think it isn't that bad, I like how there is more light in the cab than the usual cab shot of a steam loco. It is probably a bit cramped in there to get more of a complete shot, but if you can reshoot maybe get a little more on the right in my opinionm, also may be a good idea to clean it up a little, grime is ok but the coke cup and i think crumpled paper doesn't add much. Personally I like it though. -Arne

I think if you simply cropped enough of the left to eliminate the Coke cup and took a bit off the top, it would be fine.

Walter,

It looks like you did more than just crop the photo? What happened to the white rag that was on the left? It now looks like there is something there only it is dark and cloned in looking. You might want to read or reread the guidelines on manipulation found here:

With all due respect, you could have done better with this shot. You could have framed it more like

You have some great shots in the database. This just isn't one of them with the controls cropped out.

So you're saying that one version had a white rag on the left side of the frame and the other version had a black, oily-looking one?!? Seriously?

No I was saying that I did a not so good job cloning the rag out in one version and just cropped the other version.

So which one is in the database? The poorly cloned one, the cropped one, or the poorly cloned cropped one? I'm confused...

I thought cloning was not allowed?

Not unless it's birds or dust spots as far I'm aware. Enjoy that shot now cause I got a feeling it's going bye-bye pretty soon...

Wait, you can clone a bird but not a rag? If it flies, it's cloneable? How about a duck? It flies AND floats. So, anything that floats is cloneable? Wait...a rag floats, before it sinks...AND it flies if you throw it. Hence, a flying rag is cloneable, right? haha
