Choo Choo

I'm having some second thoughts about this photo. I think I should have done one or more of the following:

A. Edit out the antennae/protrusion on the left.
B. Step into the middle of the road for the shot in order to square up the image.
C. Use photoshop to stretch the image a bit, make the horizon more level.

What do you think?

    I had the same thought in terms of the angle with the shot I took of this sign. There was so much traffic it was difficult to get to the vantage point to be directly in front. I didn't end up taking anything out of the photo, but I did give it a bit of an aged look that I thought fit the feel of a railroad emblem/building.

    I there there are a lot of possibilities with a photo like you have taken. The list you have would all be good improvements.

    What we really needed was a cherry picker. There is no middle of the street angle because the median is full of light rail overhead lines. Maybe we could get Calanan to drive us by in the back of a pickup.

    Morning light would have made the biggest difference for this photo. AT
