Default Master Cropper in the house?

Looking for the ever-present master cropper to lay some wisdom down.
Am I cropping too tight in general on L/R or leaving too much sky?

All are indeed too right except for the second UP shot where the front of the train is basically centered.

Also needs a slight CCW rotation IMHO. Other than that it looks good to me.

Here's my go, I like the shot although not too keen on the sky clutter, even so I think it is better than the shadows in the foreground.

Default Thanks Mark

Thanks Mark.

If its the shadows that is the issue - how does this look?

(a little later in the morning)

Is the crop too tight? I took some with the full view of 2700 as well, but I like the closer look at 2846 given the focus is the stbd damage.

Thx

DB

I like this one better, the power still seems to occupy the centre vertically, I recropped the last one removing some sky and using a 5 by 3 crop, maybe the one of the whole scene could be better cropped.

In terms of a bad angle - are they looking for more of a head on?
