Default rejected for bad cropping

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=158314 was rejected for bad cropping. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to crop this differently. And is it possible to still get it accepted? Thanks, Ryan

I gave you some suggestions about that photo on your other thread "4 rejects" I said: "3rd pic: sky looks okay, but I would crop some of the left, and definately all of the right, so the right side of pic is right next to the locomotive."
you did crop some of left, but you still didnt crop the right. Now, I'm not saying that by cropping the right it will get accepted, but as far as I can tell, it will have a better chance.

i took your photo into photoshop, I can tell you want to keep that other tunnel to the right. So, I cropped the right, getting rid of the trees to the right of the right tunnel. Then I saved this image onto an 800x600. good luck

There is a slight backlit appearance to it. The right tunnel should stay, but that's taking some attention away from the train.

Looks a bit soft as well.

If the tunnel on the right is important, you probably should have gotten back farther from the tracks so there isn't so much blank space from the train to the second tunnel.

I would add: elevate yourself. The righthand tunnel is greatly obscured by grass. I would suggest a different angle to better include the tunnel if it was the focus of this shot.
