Default Cropping Advice Needed

Any ideas here? I want to try to keep the mountains but I'm not sure what to do...lots of dead space.

Also, is the second worth submitting? I think the field behind it adds to the shot. Any suggestions would be nice. Thanks!

For the first one...if you would like to keep the scenery and the mountains, I'd appeal. Otherwise, I'd take some off the left. You'd still have a lot of scenery. Nice shot.

Take some off the left. Level it a bit CCW. You'll be able to crop it enough and you'll still be able to keep the Ford Explorer.

Do you still have the telephone poles in the original? I would straighten it then crop off more of the left and bring in the uniformity of the poles. Just a personal preference (which may not fly here), I like the perspective and depth they give. Plus, railroads don't have those much any more along the right-of-way.


P.S.: I like the hoses up front, they are directly related to railroading and aren't distracting.
