You are in focus, you are pretty level, you are correctly exposed and the color is good.

That said you are much too tight. You are violating the rule of thirds. In all the photos, you are too close to the right hand side of the frame and too high. Also you as so tight there is no context. It s just a picture of a locomotive really.

I Foam Therefore I Am.

they're all waaaay to tight, i'd suggest giving it a bit more all around with more on the right and left as opposed to the top and bottom, try not to centre the locomotive in the pic; in this case put it 2/3s to the right...
