I assume this was rejected for poor cropping? I'd lose the foreground rails, they add nothing to the image. I'd also lose that crooked pole at the left, it tricks the eye into thinking the image is askew.

Overall it's a pretty ordinary scene, I'm not entirely sure cropping is the primary problem with it.

Good luck,
Bill

I assume you shot from a low angle to emphasize the rails, but as Bill said, it didn't really add anything. The problem is, you've now hidden the bottom of the trucks on the unit. Experimenting is good, but not all experiments work.

You might try shooting the rails up close, using them as the subject, with the out of focus unit in the distant background.

The rails where not a primary focus.

The bottom of the trucks being cut off and the fact that the nose is completely in the shade will kill this shot's chances. Plus the power pole coming out of the unit is a tad distracting...

And the loco looks a bit soft.
