Now, I'm not griping, or anything, but I cant figure out why this shot keeps getting rejected for bad cropping. Personally I think its a pretty cool shot. What do you all think I should do, and who ever is screening this, what is your particular "cropping" reason? Thanks in advance.

Spetacular photo!! I think they mean bad cropping because the size of your photo isn't 1024 x 768. Your's is 1024 x 785. Also try cropping a little more of the sky out. Personally, I think its good just as is. The color of the sky is awsome.

By no means is it a "bad" shot but I think there is room for improvement.

Im going to use a shot by Mark Wurst as an example....in Mark's shot notice how the composition is tighter on the engine (less dead space). This makes the photo more dramatic and really brings out the sky/mountain in the background.

In your shot the "punch" of the shot is lost in the dead space around the subject. Try re-cropping a little tighter and we'll take another look.
