In many cases, the bad cropping rejection is a result of too much or too little space around the subject. In your case it is too much space. Notice how the nose of the locomotive is centered in the frame, with too much "tree space" to the left of it.

If you're not familiar with the rule of thirds, look it up. In the case of your photo, if the nose of the locomotive was placed along the left third of image, the photo would be more balanced. This should be a good place to start.
