http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=143655

Any suggestions on how I can crop it right? Thanks.

It's probably too tight on the left side. Leaving a little bit of space on that side will allow your subject to "breathe."

You seem to like hanging around the yard in North Bessemer and taking tight wedge shots that show 3 BLE tunnel motors and 2 or 3 cars. Maybe the screeners are trying to tell you "enough". I'll bet you'll get more shots accepted if you can find other locations to shoot the trains: locations that depict the train as part of a scene. Since the Pittsburg area is probably familiar to you, take a look at Wade Massie's images. I get the impression that he works hard to compose his photos, and I'll bet that he has few rejections.
Just a suggestion...

I know of plenty of shots, it's just I'm 16 and dont have a car. Anyways half the time when I send in distant shots I get bad cropping rejects and everytime that I seem to cut them down to a close-up view they get accepted. I dont know. hah.
