Red face Need Crop Help on Single Engine

I would greatly appreciate some assistance Ė canít seem to find the crop on this pic. Many of the other single engine shots I have submitted are accepted with a tighter crop, but this one eludes me.

Any ideas?
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...03&key=7610649

Nothing else to see here

I probably would not try as many times to get it in, but I donít see this engine in the data base after it has been repainted. (It was previously green)


Thanks in advance.
DB

I could almost have answered this thread without looking at the pictures. Every one of these are centered on the loco, as are most of the Bad Cropping rejects you bring here. Most of these are also too tight as well.

Those crops don't even look different to my eyes. The poles growing out of the loco don't help a roster shot any either.

Like Joe said, uncenter the thing.

Those would be the death of a roster shot if I were a screener.

My observation is that RP wants side shots, or 3/4 wedgies.

These are neither.
