Well, this is just my opinion; the train is the subject in the photo, and leaving the tree in the photo is somewhat of a distraction, especially since it's only partially in view. If the train wasn't rounding a curve, and the cars went to the edge of the photo, it would be different.

When you are rotating your photo, use the vertical lines on the building on the left to go by. When the lines on the building are parallel to the edge of your computer screen, you're perfect.

When lightening up a photo, I like to brigten it up first, then increase the level of contrast, until it looks natural. You may also choose to increase, or decrease the level of color saturation to help balance the changes in light.

Good luck, it's a great shot!
