Default Poor Cropping

Hi Folks could someone point out to me where I should crop this photo? It was rejected for bad cropping but I wanted to leave the green sign in as it added to the photo. Thanks for any help.

To me, the sign and the conductor may have to be cut out. The sign is interesting, but it might detract from the loco. Also there may be too much space in the foreground.

Just my opinion,

Chuck

I disagree. Remote Control operating signs are a dime a dozen, and with this shot, it just doesn't fit. My first thought was, "Why is the engine all the way to the left?"

Just a thought...

You've got a bit too much road on the bottom of that shot, that could be cropped out.

IMO you also can crop out the sign to the right, but I think you should try to keep the conductor.

Thanks for the help guys. I think if i crop out some of the foreground the photo will become odd looking?
