Default To Crop ... but where ?

I don't see, how I could change the cropping of this picture.

I hesitated nearly one year in submitting this, as the subject is special, and believe in cutting somewhere there will only be a lot of loss in detail.

Look for the symmetry, and then balance it.

I hope you can keep those long shadows of the passengers.

Fix the issue of it being unlevel too... Nice shot, though. I'd love to see it in the database.

Its getting clearer for me, this means some distortion works, thus I made a raw leveling on the straight bars above the departing panel.
Seems I should have done it more precisely... Thanks !

I know you don't want to lose the ceiling, but I would crop tighter, placing emphasis on window, reflection, and people.

Another thought: as it is, the shot is tall and narrow, noticeably taller than a 3:2 ratio which I think is typically the limit on RP. Try doing just a simple crop, a wee bit off the top, a bit off the bottom but keeping the lower left person mostly in, and get to at least 3:2.

Or go a bit further and crop that person off. You lose the full length of the shadows of the middle group but you do get to tighten up a bit top to bottom.
