Well, yeah, since that's what they rejected it for. I could go either way on it, I guess. But I wonder if asthetically speaking it would look better in landscape format?

Yeah, the problem with that is it barely even looks like a "train." For all I know, that's a bunch of buses MU'd together.

In all seriousness, yes, it's foreground clutter, and yes, it should have been rejected. Something is wrong with the color or image quality also.

Alright. I was just a little suprised as I've def seen pictures of SEPTA MU's on that bridge with more of them blocked out.

I have some pictures of Amtrak trains on that bridge though so I'll try one of those.

The shot is just too tight for me. First of all, when there is foreground obstruction, one way to minimize its impact is to back off and show the scene. Second, this one is so tight, that the focus to me is on the broad flat surfaces, and especially that retaining wall behind the red car, even more so than the mural. Given that the eye is not going to spend that much time on an obstructed train, where is it going to go?

I think I'll do a horozontal when I retry.

I just liked how you have the river, west river drive, I-76, Girad Ave and the NEC all set up like a trellece.
