Default Bad Cropping

Is the bad cropping because of the shape I ended up with?

I wanted to keep the red cliffs and the sky, should I keep more of the foreground also to help the shape?

Here is the original on another site.

Thanks

Looks like you took too much off the bottom. The locos should be about a third of the way up so you can maintain the rule of thirds. There seems to be an image quality problem as if you have too much jpeg compression also.

I'm seeing some bad colors too. I also am not a fan of the bush blocking the third loco, even just slightly.
