Default Is this bad cropping?

The screeners have spoken.

I liked seeing the office in the background as well as having the crew member walking the train. This is new paint on the L&C -- really a heritage sceme -- and I'd really like to get a shot on here, but I was havig bad luck yesterday with sun angles and shadows. See attached.

Joe,

The screeners probably have a problem with the large brown/green mass at bottom left. Trim some off the left just about up to the office and a bunch off the bottom and you should be alright. Nice shot.

I would crop out the trees to the left of the building and a bit of sky. It also looks like it could use slight CCW rotation.

Rotate CCW, crop up from the bottom left, and it should get in no problem.

Nice shot, Joe! I like how it looks as if the locomotive is just sitting in the field. From a distance, the rails aren't too visible (atleast to my eyes) which makes the photo kind of neat.
