Default Rejection For Bad Cropping

I pulled this shot out of my files from a couple months ago and decided I'd give it a shot.

It was originally rejected for bad cropping:

I thought it was too tight on the left so, I re-cropped it and still got the same rejection:

I was thinking on the second one, there's too much sky, but not sure.

Any thoughts?

I think you are right... too much sky (but the foreground isn't that great either). I would cut as much sky as you can without going into such a short rectangle that the ratio is no longer acceptable.

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

I was seeing that too. I can take care of that after I get the cropping down.

Looks like too much on the bottom for me; maybe just keep it as a personal file?

Right now the contrast and colors seem kind of dull, which is somewhat a product of the filtered sunlight and is probably leading to the poor lighting rejection.

Actually, with the temps dropping in the midwest, moves like this will be ever so common. It seems like every winter there are always shots popping up with a BNSF or UP engine pulling 1 (or 2) P42DC(s).
