Default Cropping Help

Here's a recent reject that I'm not sure how to alter. It was rejected for bad cropping. I was trying to be artistic and frame the train with the tree in the foreground. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Great shot, Matt. I'd crop some off the left and a tad off the top. You'll still have most of the tree in the photo.

I like the shot. It would probably be better if you had waited a split second till the train was further to the right, but not behind the small tree on the right... but thats more wishful thinking than anything practicle. its hard to get it set up perfecly int he feild.

You could crop off some sky. that would not hurt, but the only problem is that then you would lose the tree branch from the tree at the left, and i kinda like the way it frames the photos. You could possably take off some of the groud, but i could not tell you if it would look good untill i did it.

Overall i like it, not sure what would be best to "fix" it. keep up the good work =)

Well I tried a new crop, but this time it was rejected for poor lighting. (I can't figure that one out) So I suppose I'll try to appeal that one and hope I can get it in. Not my greatest shot, but I like the composition.

Sun looks a little too head on to be really useful for a side shot.
