Default "Bad Cropping" rejection-question?

Hi again guys!!!
I have here another rejected photo, rejected for "bad cropping." Any help you can give me here is much appreciated, being that I am still new at this, since the term, "bad cropping" is so vague to me. Also, let me know if this photo is worth saving, or should I trash it.
Thanks a million!!!

For me i like the shot as i donot think that there are any dead spaces in it.Maybe from the top but i'd say that icluding cars in the top of the pic adds more to it as it shows apart of the normal life in this area.I'd say that you should appeal it as its really anice shot.

I'm thinking a slight clockwise rotation and tighter to get rid of some of the roadway at the top.

Cheers

You should put the whole train in the middle of the photo together ,
not the front unit of the whole train .

I got the same problem when I am taking photos of the LRVs in HK too .

Hi,

This copy isn't exceptional quality, but this is an example of what I would try. I cut off some of the excess roadway and rotated 1 degree clockwise. The size of the image was also quite small so I adjusted this as well.

To be clear, you do not want to appeal. Appealing is when you do not want to make a change but want to point out something to the screeners that might change their mind. Instead, you want to do a new submission.
