What do you think of this shot?

I took this photograph today at the local visitors center in Dalton, Georgia. They are right next to the train tracks and they have this one car sitting there for display.

I know the shot isn't perfect but I do like it. The only thing I wish was different is the sun spot. That is not supposed to be It happens sometimes though and I wasn't able to edit it out. I tried and it made it look worse so I left it in. Other than that, I like the overall feel of the shot.

I love doors of all kinds and that extends to train car doors. That might be why I like the shot. I just wondered what y'all thought of it. Do you like the angle, the colors, the overall effect? Do you hate the angle? Any opinions are welcome.

Did you have a lens hood fitted...failing that try tilting the camera slightly to try and get any lens reflection close to the edge of the picture and crop it out later....last place you want it is covering detail that would be hard to cover in paintshop..

Yeah, I couldn't really tell at the time. I have a lens hood, I just never remember to take it with me. I need to put it in the car. :)

I usually fit it on backwards...saves space in the camera bag...

I will see if mine will go on backward.

Thank you. I'm glad you like it. It is a train door behind a gate so it's not just a regular door.

The angle throws me off a bit but otherwise if it's a train, I say get several pictures. :) (And, don't be surprised if some goofball comes along trying to call the sunspot and "orb." LOL!)

Yeah, I do weird angles sometimes just cause I can. :)

Well, it's a different angle...I saw right away that it was a doorway, but had to read the explanation to find out what kind.
