Rusty and part of history. A train depot of the past.
Taken at f 4, 800 speed, ISO 100, 85mm zoom.
Please critique to let me learn what am I doing wrong. Thank you.

Probably a portrait crop but with the whole door, missing the top is a bit distracting.

I love this kind of stuff, but I find getting really close and show some of the details of the rust and old metal. These shots can be really interesting if you get the details in.

Thank you for the comments.
I recognize the problem with the crop on the top. As mentioned, maybe a portrait format would allowed me to include the top and discard the rest.
If I return to the place I will try a closer shot. It certainly had enough rust, mainly on the scale. Thank you again.

I think you need to look for a different angle up closer as well. This is not a very interesting angle and I'm sure there are tons of great details up close.

Nice idea but agree with the rest. I think it would be better showing more details. Rust, scaling paint etc!.

regards,

Jim

Its too centered. I know you can find a shot with this subject, though. It looks more like a snapshot that a planned image.
