    For a start, I am completely new to this and welcome any critism that will help me.

    I am trying to get a good picture of a disused railway station near to where I live. I think that the line of the old railway should be nearer the centre, drawing the eye into the picture but due to trees etc I can't take a decent picture from further to the right. Has anyone got any suggestions?

    I like it. Shooting when there are better skies would help, but your off to a good start. Nice angle...

    Thanks Cosmo. It was a bit of a dull day and as a result I have had to add some light to the photo, which I'd rather not do.

    This is well composed!
    I wouldn't change a thing and I like the path that indicates where the rails once were that far on the right and the station building on the left.
    If it is close to where you live, you might consider making this a point where you go take the same photo in all possible weather, light, seasonal, time of day situations?

    Very nice

    I agree about the sky, it would be much better blue.

    Thanks for you replies. The station is about 5 minutes walk from where I live so I will definately take your advice and take some pictures with better light.

    That is a great looking building......would make for a haunted restaurant.

    Nice shot.

    I definitely love the composition of this picture. The branches in the foreground are barely noticeable because the angle and subject matter pull my eyes right in.

    And not to beat it to death, but with a better sky this would be a phenomenal picture.

    I like the picture, but oddly I'm drawn to the path on the right considerably more than anything else... I want that path photographed NOW! :lol:

    ok....

    for the cloud coverage... and your location its definately well composed and a nice shot...

    I personally would back up maybe 10-15ft to your right rear so you are more towards the right side of the old track bed... that way the whole foot path intersection will be in the shot and also the building and old railbed...

    just a thought...
