How's my composition?
 
Good morning gentlemen!

Is there anything I can do to the following photo to make it more RP-acceptable from a compositional point of view?

Thanks!

Wouldn't have hurt to let the train get closer... I know you're trying to emphasize the slope of the hill, but I think you'd still convey that appearance if the train was about half way down.

Yes, let the train advance farther into the frame.

There is too much "nothingness" on top, and the trees are too dark to really warrant that much of them on the sides. If you have the pixels to maybe do something like the attachment with "Kilroy" in the top right and the rail running diagonally across your photo ot the bottom?

First, what Kevin suggests, except I might put a wee bit more sky back, and I would definitely consider giving up on the grade crossing.

Second, not a fan, can you do a BW conversion where it is more than white and black? But the main think is simply too much foreground, in my view.

Literally. I keep looking for a little pig sliding down on sled, lol. Glad that you took J's suggestion about the sky. Nice!
