Hey Joe!!! I would crop a hair off of the front, and quite a bit above and below (ground) of the train. Nice photo!

I was thinking that the primary reason for the rejection was a too narrow picture but I was just hoping to get the Buffulo Creek in the photo and that bridge that the train is crossing over is 100 years old.The Creek is very wide as It goes under the bridge so maybe next time I'm there I can walk down closer to the Bridge when I take a photo.

Anyway thanks for the help,I did crop a little off the top and bottom so we'll se what happens.

This composition doesn't seem to work very well in this situation. All I see is a bunch of sky and a bunch of foreground. There's nothing really to add to the shot. It would probably work better if you cropped a BUNCH off the top and bottom and then a little off the right.

I would take off much of the sky, level the units and crop off about four mouse arrows below the sharp turn in the stream.

I like the photo very much.

I cropped it last night.I cropped a lot of the sky and ground so now it has the train and the bridge in it.

Personally I like the rejected shot more, of course I know RP has different opinions on photos than I do.

I was thinking the same thing. The water meandering towards the camera gave it some character. But, the final result isn't bad either.

I did like the water but I guess I'll just live with the accepted photo.The original will have to stay in my own personal collection.

It was nice to get a photo of that bridge in it though and I've said before that bridge is over 100 years old and the bridge is the best part of the photo.
