    Hi John

    I would decide what you want the focus of the photo to be, and then crop the photo. There is a huge amount of wet carpark at the bottom of the photo, and a huge amount of very white/grey sky at the top. Probably 70% of the photo is made up of these 2 things - but I think the focus should be on the train, the countryside setting, and possibly the picnic bench.

    The tree on the left adds a nice natural border and shows some foreground - But I would lose the carpark, and some of the sky.

    Is the train travelling from right to left (IE pushing the carriages)? If so, I would put the engine on the right of the frame (either with a crop or by taking the photo a second earlier) - I think this would pull the eye in the direction of travel more.

    Hope that's useful!

    Thanks Banehawi

    I love the first 2 mods. The crop and movement makes the photo so much better - the photo seems to have more impact now that there is space for her to look into.

    Great mods - thanks Smile

    Stunning! Love the use of depth of field - the out of focus background is so smooth!

    Gorgeous photo! I love the way the the various items (rocks, Jetty, tower on the right, lighthouse) pull your eyes further and further into the photograph

    Sorry - This was a photo of a room with many framed photographs on a wall - this was one of the photos (I didn't even realise until I saw it on screen) so it's a crop from a much larger photo that I've had to do a lot of cloning, correcting on. Also brought out the detail in the background, on the hat, brightened it up (believe it or not), removed the flash highlights etc.

    I must admit though, it does lose quite a lot viewing it in such a small size on here.

    How did you do that????? lol

    I spent ages trying to do something with the sky and eventually gave up!

    You're right, it makes a huge difference..... If only I knew how to do it
