Default Thoughts ?

Hi team,

I would appreciate to receive your thoughts / comments concerning the below rejection. How would you improve the cropping and the color to get the photo accepted to the database ?

Many thanks in advance !

Needs a lot tighter crop on the right.

Yeah, take some off the right, maybe adjust the greens/yellows for color?

I agree with Evan and Joseph on the crop but I can see within the deeper dark areas that the black is biased towards blue / purple. Could be oversaturation doing it.

The purple / blue cast on the blacks is worse now.

Wow! Another charter! Problem, I'd say the positioning of the person relative to the train which shows no sign of movement, or even being active ie light/ steam. I know you like people in the frame but this might not be the best example? Anyway on some photos where I got that rejection could move things around till ..... freezes over to no avail.

The original is fine as is to my eyes. This is why I could never be a screener on this site.

The reworked version seems compliant with the Commandment of Thirds.
Assuming there exists a version of this scene that they would accept, I'd love to see it!

Selected another frame with more space on the top and left (and less on the right), et voila !!
