It's a little tight, but I think they hate it mostly because it's Welsh

Right, it is too close at the right !

If possible give the loco some more space on the right side of your photo.

Thanks to both of you for your input.

Its pleasing to note then that this site takes a more classical approach to photography. Leaving that extra space for the subject to "move into" would lead to a bad cropping rejection at other sites for "dead space"!! Requirements here are clearly different.

I must admit, I like the railwayman in the accepted version much more. Rather than being awkwardly lumped in with the loco, he's a clear bit of human interest.

The accepted shot is better, it gained a lot more "life" from the included people - you made a good choice there. - Sometimes its just the other shot you should have submitted... you only know it later !
