Default Another bad crop

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...44&key=5060151

Looked OK to me. Crop more from the right would be crowding the signal. From the left, maybe?

Everything of interest is centered vertically in the frame. RP likes an offset.

I think even though they gave a "bad crop" reject that time the fact the dump truck and other clutter appearing to be protruding from the front of the engine will end this shot's chance period. It looks like it's growing out of the engine when you first look at it and they will give another rejection if you change the crop IMO.

What Rich said. The truck is a scene-killer.

Oh. Well, it always depends on the shot, but in principle if it fits the scene, I don't mind anything other than the lead unit being affected.

Oh, but lets not forget the obvious - cloudy day, common power, underexposed and lacks contrast.

And what everyone else mentioned.
