Bad Cropping
I just got a photo rejected for bad cropping. What part of it should be cropped out?

The only thing that I can think of is maybe a little too much above the loco.

All of the right side. Leave the top if you want that tower in there.

No offence, but it really doesnt seem like the kind of photo you can do alot for.. It came out a bit blurry, and some harsh lighting (sky is too bright, but you can't fix that without killing the train's lighting).. I'd retake it if possible, seems like common power. Use a tripod, it'll cut down on the blur. Also, if possible, try to use manual focus so your camera doesn't focus on the snow.

There was a lot of snow on the tracks. It might be difficult to capture a train kicking up that much snow again.

It seems a bit unlevel; leaning to the right. It does need to be sharpened a bit as well. Shave off more of the sides and bring the top down to the tower (or chop some of it off).

Those are some options, but I think Cyclonetrain is correct. The locomotive is dark. If it isn't accepted after all, it was good practice with a photo editor.

You want more space in the direction that the train is going, and almost none where it came from (rear of the train - the left). Problem is, I like the cloud of snow you see to the left.

The front of the loco looks sharp, I think the problem is lack of light and shooting at a very large aperature and having very little depth of field. :-(
