Vermonter at Vernon.

Saturday, October 10th, I exposed a series of photographs of Amtrak 54 (northward Vermonter) at Vernon, Vermont.

Low sun and richly colored vegetation made for a simple, but attractive scene.

Starting with the shadow in the foreground, I set up a graphic composition using a series of simple line and color transitions designed to complement and emphasize the Amtrak train.

Which version do you think is more effective: the closer view, or the image where the Amtrak train is slightly more distant?

  1. Closer picture is better. Don’t need all that foreground ground cover. Too bad there wasn’t more foliage color. Maybe a bit north? Considering the time of year, there should be some color up there and that would have really improved the picture.
