Default Bad cropping reject

I came back from my short trip to Taiwan with probably 5 photos that I think have a chance to make it in the db here. I don't really see what is so bad with the cropping here, any suggestions?

It's too dead on the left hand side.

Yes, something like a worker on the left would always be good but there is so much to look at as it is.

The loco is level, lit, sharp, uncluttered and in a rule of thirds spot.

I don't know why it was rejected, looks good to me!

Appeal to another screener.

Crop some off the left and the top. You won't lose anything that needs to be in the shot, but the loco will be more prevalent.
