So should I try again or just move on?

I'll begin by saying that this is my first post on the board, so please forgive me if I make any mistakes.
I've gone through several attempts to get this photo accepted. The latest reason for rejection is the distracting shadows (and of course being under-sharpened, but I can fix that). My question to you all is, what is your opinion? Do the shadows really kill this shot?

Welcome to the forums!

That black blob smack dab in the middle doesn't help you, for sure! My eye goes straight to it. Not good.

Also, for my tastes the nose is too close to the right edge. IF you have already recropped during earlier rounds of screening, that's fine, not the first time I disagree with a screener preference.

A frame with the lead unit one car length back would be much better, as it would allow you to crop in a little to minimize the large shadow. Everything else looks good, though.

Thanks for the responses, guys. In response to Mr. Thias, I took several shots while I was there (bout a good hundred, if I had to guess), and I have several more angles of this scene. I do have a roster shot of the lead unit, but I wanted to avoid posting that because I though the overall scene looked better. I'll have to look and see what I've got later, as I don't have access to my photos currently.
