Default Conrail Bad Crop

I like my crop but they don't. Any suggestions? Appeal denied once.

I'd actually leave the bottom and take off some sky as well as some off the left. Also, put in the reportin marks.

Joe is the resident "JT of reporting marks" but unfortunately he does not instruct and so does not clarify.

Put "NS 8098" in for the road number. The "8098" by itself is remarkably unhelpful in doing RP searches.

For future reference, you can change info for a photo in the queue.

I'll let J tell you how!

It's unlevel.

Maybe they don't like the way the crop is so tight on the right side that the white truck in the lower right is partly cut off

Well, I don't know what to say. It got rejected again for crop and now for oversharpened (which I didn't apply the second time).
So, I guess I get to keep it over on Flickr.

I suspect the cropping is the half pickup on the right, leave it out or keep the whole thing in. Don't know about the oversharpened. But you have something else, a weird grid pattern of some sort in the sky, especially the left side. Weird. Doesn't appear in the first version.

I agree, get the whole grill of the truck in, or cut it out altogether. And the sky is definitely pixilated...or something.

I've had grid patterns like that happen in photos after re-saving JPEGs multiple times. I suspect it's some sort of compression artifact.

As several people have mentioned, the cropping issue is probably the truck. I think the photo will be better if you have enough to include the whole truck, as taking it out will also result in cutting off the train itself (which is often a no-no here). I can see the oversharpening - the handrails on the CR unit have a case of the jaggies. If you shot RAW, go back and start over from the original - I'm inclined to agree that the artifacts in the sky come from too much re-editing and re-saving of the same JPEG.
