I agree. It's on my website here (click on the image to view bigger): federico buchbinder / shadows and light | Black & White | Train to Nowhere (B&W) (2011)I love the level of detail you got in the sky and the snow. And the train, too, for that matter. This is one of those images that needs to be viewed large and with a dark background behind it. Is it on your website by chance?
Something like this? (Not a crop though, just a different photo.)Heh, I have yet another suggestion for a minor crop, but am a bit hesitant to mention it since I feel like I've been nit-picking your images lately, even though I always do like your originals as they are in the first place. But, the hydro tower on the far right side seems to distract from the line set by the train - did you try cropping that out, and perhaps some of the bottom (to keep the aspect ratio)?
Sure, go ahead... but please don't butcher itInvis mind if I post an edit?
Here in Manitoba, we take what we can getI'm with Mishele on the location, though. I once saw a wonderful photo of bison in Yellowstone taken when it was -20 F and knew that I would never take a photo like that.
The rule of thirds is just a guideline. I violate it on a regular basis, and you should tooFunny how it violates the rule of 3rds, yet works so well with the train dead center.
