I think RP wants the shot after you make it the best it can be.

"Bad Cropping" probably refers to the fact the aspect ratio is too square for RP's taste. Make it more a rectangle and you should be in.

Normally, an open loco door is an instant reject here but because of the crew, I think it works very well.

Good luck.
Dumbest reject reason ever.
I personally have had a problem with those trying to tell us to turn railroad photography into an "art form." It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG
