Default "First" trial on RP: PEQ

Dear Sirs,

I accept the decision, but does anyone have a good idea to make it RP-comfort?

Thanks for your opinions!

In general, railpictures wants to show more of the train. (Generally speaking in generalities, exceptions are everywhere)
In your case I think I tighter crop would be a good start.

Also, search 'funicular' on this site and that will also give you an idea of what's acceptable for this type of railway.

I doubt you have enough image quality to crop it down this far, but if you go back to re-shoot, consider setting up a shot like this and I think you might have a chance.

Thanks for the suggestions!

I think the picture is not worth much without the bridge, but no doubt could be more acceptable on this site. What do you think about this cropping?

I personally think that the latest crop could work. I like the water at the bottom, a little hint of bridge and less sky.

Any way you can get a tram in there? That might add more railroad interest, I know there are tram lines on both sides of the river, I tried getting a photo with the trams and the chain bridge when I was there but not much luck, living there you probably have more time to experiment.

Here is the picture with the tram. Unfortunately, the stone wall is largely obscure. (The trams are going in tunnels under the bridge on both sides of the river.)

Were the funicular cars parked on the hill? They are in the same exact position in both of your photos (with tram and without).

I found this as the best position because of the small bridges and shadows. I have got multiple images where the cars are in the same place, a couple of times I started the day with this project in July (when the sun is in the good position), my workplace is close to here.

Thanks! This was the second attempt before I tried the accepted version:

I really don't know which one is better.

"Better" can be a very subjective term but for the purposes of this site making the funicular more prominent was probably more appropriate. There was a heck of a lot of architecture that, while fascinating, diverted one's attention in the original crop.
