can't figure out how to crop for RP

what am I missing? take a little off to the left? I'd love to have this on, the signals aren't going to be up for long.

Bad cropping

I've tried this several times, each time giving up a little more foreground. Does RP want a little bit more or is there something I'm missing in what they're looking for?
