Default Bad Cropping

I have never been very good with vertical crops. Thoughts on where to go with this one? Room to work with everywhere.

Don't cut the elevator off so much. Give more room to the right which will also move the train over. I'm also thinking there is too much on the bottom and/or top.

I'm going to go against Joe on this one. I say crop the right into that lonely tree, and then off of the top down to just off of the silo to compensate and get rid of dead space that we have to scroll past to get to the subject.

It looks like you had the sunlight on the side of the train to go more wedgie and include the elevator and have a better composition. May I ask why this angle was chose if your intention was to include the elevator?

I considered moving to the left for more of a wedgie style photo but the building is much larger than the photo shows. In addition to that I am shooting through a chain-linked fence (all bridges over rail lines seem to have this now) and could not get the angle necessary without including a blurry portion of the fence in the photo. Inevitably, I had to cut the building off somewhere.
