As far as the cropping goes, I suspect the issue is that you have the trains (and the horizon line) smack dab in the middle of the photo, which violates the so-called "rule of thirds" and also, in this case, leaves you with a lot of empty space in the foreground. However, even if you fix that I suspect you'll next get nailed for backlit because the side of the trains facing you is in shadow, or perhaps blurry or PIQ as the shot looks kind of hazy . . .
