Default Any Thoughts?

I was trying some new things with perspective. Im trying to get away from the standard Weggie shots.

I thought this would work but I guess not. Any Ideas or suggestions?

They are just wedgies with too much empty space in front. I like how you got low however.

It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

I got to looking through some of my other shots. This is basicly the same shot.

This one didn't have any troubble.

I was going for more of the whole scine. I guess I don't consider it dead space. I do see your point on the Amtrak shot. I just liked the purple tree. LoL.

It looks like you were going for the flowering trees on all of them. Great way to add colour.
Two suggestions:
1) let the nose of the train touch the colour (or as close to it).
2) stand a little further away from the track (ROW) and that will change up the angle some.
