Default Cropping for lite engine moves/helper sets

I have a question on a rejection of the following photo for bad cropping on a helper set:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=903311&key=0

This is the second photo I submitted as the first one had a bit more to the right of the lead engine. For the above photo, I tighted the cropping closer to the two engines. I tried to center the engines between the ballast and sky in the photo. Would it help if I crop in more of the left side of the photo, behind the second trailing engine? Just trying to get an idea of cropping on helper sets and engine moves. Thanks in advance!

The subject of your photograph is in the dead center of the frame. Thus, you have bad cropping. Secondly, there are shadows over a good part of both engines.

Additionally to what Joe said, you have some noise/image quality issues and your caption is about 10G not this helper set.

The photo I uploaded of 10G was previous to this helper set. I thought I had pasted the helper comments over the 10G one, but guess it didn't work and I didn't catch it before uploading the file.

Onto the cropping. Using this photo as an example, the engines should be more to the right of the photo instead of being centered?
