The world didn't end - so please help with composition rejection!
I really like this shot so I'm probably biased. I'd like to hear everyone's opinions on how I can crop this for acceptance.

Thanks from the 3rd planet from the sun which is still rotating at the same speed and in the same direction. Oh, and magnetic north is still the same direction!

To invoke Mitch Goldman, if it says comp/balance, look first to see what is centered that should not be.

RP does not like centered, here the train is centered vertically. Crop to either move the train up or down. Here, keep the clouds, get rid of the gravel.

That'd be my guess though I look at it and wonder would it really work better with either more sky or more gravel? Unfortunately, better with "rules" broken seems a foreign notion with certain screeners.

Good luck - you could appeal first and then start moving the subject up or down.

I would do something like this (lose the gravel parking lot...). This drops the focal point below center, and gives it a bit more balance. I do like the shot quite a bit. Sorry it's not the northbound Seminole, though... :)
