Default Bad Cropping

Hi all, any thoughts how to crop this one better:

Maybe a bit more space on the left of the signal?

cheers

Hmmm. Looks to me as if the camera could be swung to the left a bit, with a bit more on the left and a bit less on the right. As it stands, the shot is a bit left hand side heavy. That being said, I do find the mass of overhead gantries sprouting from the locos a bit distracting.

It also appears a little squarish. Maybe provide a little more room on both sides would help.

I feel it's too tight. The signal on the left is too large and distracts the attention away from the train itself.

More room all around if you have it.
