Nice shot, but there's way too much sky, mate. You would include this much sky if there was something significant you wanted to include, such as an interesting cloud formation.

Crop some off the top ...

You also have vignetting in the top right hand corner.

As Michael says, crop some (well a fair amount) off the top and I would also crop some off the right hand side as well - say just to the right of the lone tree.

Thanks for your advice!
It seems that it worked, as now it was rejected for high sun:

That is what I was thinking when I first saw the picture. You have straight-down-the-nose light, which leaves the trucks completely dark and gives the appearance of high sun. Not much you can do about that, perhaps a touch of a shadows adjustment.
