I like the scene, apparently more than most! The power tower is the point, the relative train size shows just how big the tower is, and the clouds fill the sky nicely, along with the wires. But there is a lot of dead space on the left and RP does not like square crops.

I tried the attached, went with a 5:4 horizontal. I cut into the tower a bit, not good, but then you had also cut into one arm just slightly. This might not fly (may want to try to submit it, hard to say, I guess Arne is saying go for it, can't hurt if your RP reject history is reasonable) but another visit to the spot may get you something, if you make sure you get the train on the left and not in the middle.
