Default Need Croping Advice

I just had the photo linked below rejected for "bad croping"

http://www.railpictures.net/viewqueued.php?id=169626

Attached is a scaled down version of the uncroped version of the photo (note that the horizon is not level in the uncroped version, I am aware of this and corrected it in the submitted image). Any suggestions on how it should be croped would be most appreciated. Thanks

Crop some off the left, right and the shadow off the bottom. The top looks good. Nice shot. Take care.

I resubmited it taking a little more off the top then I did the first time around, as well as on the left. I actually left more of the right side in, to give it more context, and also because I realized there's a CTA train visable over there. Well see how it goes.

Edited: Well, the screeners didn't like that croping much better. Also, I didn't do as good a job fixing the horizing on this one it seems. Back to the drawing board.

Yep . . . looks good. Those long shadows are good for pictures, lol, unless it is us in them. Nice crop.

Heh, thanks. Lucky I was on the south side for this one. I was on the north side for the local eastbound. Got a good picture, but due to the shadows not one I that's railpictures material. You can see it here, though
