Got these two pictures about a week apart, the snowy one first. Just a couple of eastbound UP freights, both pictures rejected for bad composition. Any way I could crop these that might fix that?

Here's the originals if they're any help.
Addressing composition only, You will do better with a 4x6 aspect ratio, and a crop more like this:

Yes, Think we have been through this before. Set your crop tool for 1200 x 800 in the ratio box above.. I think you have PS elements, when you crop it will show thirds lines, (2 lines across and two up and down, learn to move your crop area around so you get the the lead unit on the lower left or lower right third with the train behind across the image or at least in the bottom third. If you have other elements or roster shot then it can vary.
