Default Composition problem

Hi all, i just got this rejection for "Composition/Balance" (http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...04&key=3505497) and I was thinking about where the problem is.
May be the picture seems a nice landscape with a train and not a train in a nice landscape?
Or the problem is another? Train is too low in frame? Too left?
I really don't know
If someone may help me, it would be very appreciated.
Regards!

You've got the nose of the engine right in the middle of the frame (left-to-right), which tends to be a no-no, and you've got the train cut off on the left side as well. I'm not sure I see a solution with this shot as far as far as RP is concerned. If you've got a later frame with the nose just about to start across that bridge on the lower right, I'd say you might have a shot with that.

Thank you for answering me
I found a later frame, but unfortunately i lose a part of altstadt on the left. However result seems cute. https://www.dropbox.com/s/tou5xgk0hjg2rs3/1.jpg (the problem is the nose of the train, it's a bit covered and I don't know if is acceptable).
I tried also a smaller crop with the previous frame to keep the altstadt and to get a better crop of train but now i think that's too low in frame.

Opinions?

Thank you, Piero

Jon is dead on in his analysis, but anotehr problem I see is the color. It's very drab, part of that is it needs more saturation, but it might just have been a bad day to shoot for RP.
