Hey, James, thanks for critiquing my photos!
Those are my thoughts on the cow pasture photos. 🙂 Of course, removing the leaves on the left in that second photo should be very easy.
Sure enough, somehow my eyes missed those leaves on the left!
And lastly, the railroad is nice. Love being at the low angle like that. I wish I could tell that the tracks were bending more. They point to the very center of the image, balancing out the image so well that it feels static. I’d keep the convergence of the two rails landing on a third, incorporating more information on one side of the track or the other. Maybe the rocks on the left have some more interesting shape/texture than is visible right now?
Good thoughts. I’ll have to see if I can get another chance to go to that specific place again and retake that photo.
Also, be careful taking pictures of train tracks. It’s private property, so the only legal place to shoot them really is from a crosswalk or road, which I assume that’s what you’re shooting from.
Good point! As far as I can remember, this photo was taken at a legal railroad intersection.
