Default Comments Please - Please be honest!

Comments on this one please, of a French steam special hauled by a LOUD 141R - Alco built, if you please. It has been rejected twice - the first time for being overexposed, because I was rather over-enthusiastic in using Photoshop to overcome the effects of a dull day. The second time for bad cropping. Now I know the diesel's a pain in the posterior but I can hardly clone it out and it's not a cropping issue. Suggestions please on how it can be improved.

Not seeing a cropping issue that should warrant a rejection as such. Maybe a bit more space on the front wouldn't hurt but it's not really bad at all, not too far off rule of thirds. Wrong reject key struck, perhaps? The one you shot at Foix seems to have a bit more contrast, maybe bumping it a bit in this one might help (obviously not a "cloudy day" issue as the one at Foix was under the same light conditions and it's a pretty long stretch to call this "common power").

I'm not seeing the cropping issue either. FWIW, I think it's fine as is. The only thing I wonder about is the aspect ratio. Is it along the lines of 1024X683? (Too lazy and tired to find out for myself.)

1024 x 641. Too lazy to look at the exif data, eh?
