Bad Cropping on this one.

Ideas? Too much open space?

Possibly too central on the vertical?

Some off the top and sides would be my suggestion. Lot of featureless sky there, and the train is almost horizontally centered. I do believe there's a nice picture in there though!

I agree, definitely some off the top and sides. Give it a brush cut, Cam.

I probably would have composed it something like this:

I like the wide crop where you use the trees to frame the scene, but the train is a bit centered as it is.

I would remove some sky and add some bottom to bring the train near the top third, if you can.

I like those trees as well, but I think he needs to back up a bit to effectively use them on the sides for the framing and to "close the window" a little. There is too much space between the subject and the left side of the frame to appeal to RP, IMO.

Jim, I think you are right. And it doesn't help that the train of rail racks essentially disappears into the background, so even more than usual the weight of the train's presence is with the red engines. It looks almost like a light power move.

That bush just isn't that interesting.

If you have enough pixels to support a severe crop of the original, try something like this. Not just like this, but I didn't feel like getting it really good; MS Paint is a pain to use.

I think they want you to go even tighter.
