bad cropping, foreground obstructions, subject cut off.. all come to mind there for me. Sorry, I'd probably skip the upload on this shot.

Could you have stood just on the other side of the fire plug?

NO they get pissed off fast if you go to far past the road. And now that the CP has them it will be worse.

If you can have another go with the second one, try standing to the left a bit so that the fire plug is either on the right hand side or (preferably) out of shot altogether.

Well, if he can't go forward, perhaps he should go UP. A few feet up on a step ladder could possibly help him clear the fire hyrdrant.

Hello, good to see you're still there. And you seem still batteling hard to get your pictures accepted. Don't worry: just keep on going! If you're here so it means you don't like the easy stuff, where you may upload unlimited with no criteria until the end of days .
You are approaching your target slowly but surely.
To your first picture I don't have nothing to ad and agree with the others.
Your second one has a good starting idea in, but you have to watch about that beautiful sky, there is too much of it in the picture.
Then comes the yellow hydrant in the foreground, it attracts too much the attention of the viewer.
So here some input from me to look over, maybe this may inspire you:

http://forums.railpictures.net/attac...tid=3382&stc=1
So instead of one picture with everything in it you could have two distinct pictures with still enough stuff to see ... ?

Still, it's pretty easy to erase that on Photoshop

I don't know where that fire hydrant is in relation to the road, but you have something like ten or fifteen feet beside the road as public right of way. They can get mad all they want, but if it's public property, it's public property. Just being close to the hydrant might mean you can shoot over it.
