Default Cropping advice

Not sure where to crop this without getting a bad size rejection. Any suggestions?

Man, I hate to say it, but the cropping may be a minor isssue here. I think the image quality may not be in this one. I see some funky color & blurry.. Sorry, but this one may have to go to your collection.

I would take a little off the right side, enough to get the image into 3:2 proportion. But I agree with Douglas about the image quality.

Agreed with Douglass as well. I usually look at the main headlight on a locomotive, and if it appears to be a white blob, it's most likely out of the focus, or suffers from poor image quality. The image just lacks real detail and as mentioned, it is a bit blurry.

You have a nice camera to work with (XTi according to EXIF), but it looks like the camera focused on the foreground, perhaps?

Looks like a nice place for a wedgie providing you had good lighting.

Regardless of whether or not you choose to pursue trying to get this photo accepted, in all your work be sure to eliminate dust spots -- look in the sky above the sixth car for the obvious example in this image.
