Obviously a very strong feeling of perspective. I would have cropped the sides. Like the position of the horizon. Like the simplicity and gritty hardness. Very good.

That's an interesting stretch of track with the multiple sidings. I'd recommend droping some of the right side emptiness and try to get more of the siding detail in the frame. I'm not sure how to pull that off, though. Perhaps an angled crop?

I like this picture. The only way I could see that would be possible to crop more off the right would require you also to crop off quite a bit of the bottom, and I like the bottom the way it is now. I think if I were cropping, I'd crop the top a bit, so there's almost no horizon and you don't have the building at the top. I think that would keep my eye on the rails more, instead of following the rails to the trees and building. I think I would also go back (if I could) and shoot from some other angles, to concentrate more just the sidings and their angles/lines.

I,m liking this, find the little house interesting, Like it as it is. If I was going to crop it i might try taking off the top so the rails go to infinity. To crop the sides would unbalance the tracks at the bottom for me unless free transform or something was used to balance that first. llllllllike it.
or ev waaaaa.
