Default Cropping...

Hi folks,

This one got the boot for bad cropping. The cab too centered? I'm thinking lose some from the top right, but then again thought it was ok already. Thanks in advance for the opinions, critiques, etc.!

Nick, I would definitely take some off of the bottom.

I disagree with Ben, because of the tie. I would have shot it from further away with a longer lens, or from lower, though.

The tie is pretty distracting now that I notice, draws your eye away from the geometry of the shot. I like it otherwise though, cropping seems fine as is.

I was thinking that too, unfortunately I was already standing with my back on the edge of a street. I was crouching down, but it sure doesn't look like it...not sure why.

As for the tie, I liked it. Guess I could leave more sky and crop well up from the bottom, but I liked the old tracks and tie leading up through the "tunnel" of poles, wires, and crap. Hmm.
