Default Composition

Help please ! The screener is not happy with the composition of the below picture.

How would you change the cropping so that the photo has a chance to be accepted ?

Many thanks in advance for your input. Daniel

Works for me..... Maybe they want the train in the bottom third of the frame, but then you would have to awkwardly cut off the milepost.

The only thing I can see it is a little in your face closeup, maybe a few frames back? Don't see much you can do with the one rejected.
But then you are moving subject into middle.

The milepost is already cut off - if you have room above, I would pan up so the near rail is near the bottom right corner of the frame.

Thanks Doug. On the initial photo that I have posted, the base of the milepost was not cut off. I admit that for this one, there was too much dead space at the bottom and was relatively tight at the upper part. This is why I moved everything slightly up for the second submission (and therefore cut off the base of the milepost).
I will try your suggestion and submit again.

Good Luck. A case of slicing and dicing for??? results. I like the first one, just does not fit the standard.

Looks better with being able to see the base of the post.
