Default How to Crop

Hi troops! I need advice on cropping. The locos are centered vertically, but taking off the top or bottom will impact the second engine. Should I bring the right side up to the rear of the second engine, or even further, to reduce the dirt or sky? Thanks.

You need some clouds!

Putting aside the composition, you have something funky going on in the sky just above the "B" in BNSF in the right unit. Not just the white slash, but a weird curvy thing just to the right of that.

It's just a whiff of a cloud. I don't like naked skies either.

Any cropping suggestions?

That looks like the remnants of a contrail.

Well, a tighter crop worked:
