I find it interesting, but oddly cut off on the right and would like to see more on the bottom

Why B&W???

Also I think it needs more contrast.

I think this is alright, but the train doesn't really contrast very well with the building behind it, almost looks like it blends in. If the train were darker, I think it would have a chance. That's just me though.

they are both film. top shot was fixed 28mm lens from top of a parking garage. I cropped some dead space off of left and top. buildings prevented getting anything more on right or bottom.

probably others around also, I grabbed this because I knew there was one in Nick's set

BW: BW compositions need interesting contract, yours does not have it. Try the color version

i don't have a color version of the other one, it's black and white film.

I like the first one....but the two black and whites don't do a thing for me.
