Default Bad Cropping Reject

I don't know how else to crop it, I have a loco on the right and the 1st car on the left. I wanted a shot of 3329.

Any thoughts?

Photoshop out the bench and the flatcar and it should get accepted.

As we all know, "Photoshoping" out or otherwise cloning is not allowed or at the very least frowned upon (there are examples in the database, both acknowledged and secret).

My thoughts are that your crop reverts to a basic RP "no no" and that is simply that the image is too centered. In this issue, it does not bother me but your recourse would only be to recrop if possible so that you have more sky or more foreground thereby positioning the engine in the top or bottom third of the image.

I meant that sarcastically in light of several recent blatant and acknowledged photoshop jobs. It is a going away shot but the flatcar makes it less of a issue, I still think that bench is really distracting. Cant redo it again, but one thing I will say that even if it gets rejected now, its value is only going to increase.

This is what I typed at first:

But, before posting, I did some research and found out that it had been two years ago, as many of yall surely know. I would say that you should go with the cropping that Mitch suggested and when it gets a reject like "Front-Coupled" or something, maybe try to appeal do to the lack of remake ability on the shot.

It's front coupled, going away, bad composed with an irritating bench in the way. It may have been repainted, but it's still not a rarity. Give it fifteen years and resubmit.

The picnic bench does not make it a rejection, but that dark pilot, which makes the the unit look nose coupled draws my attention.

Give it a bit more room all around. That bench does not obstruct the unit, and I have seen worse objects between a photographer and his/her train........And it still gets approved.
