Default Crop or Not?

Hello all,
I figured I'd ask the RP experts about this rejection!
Should I re-crop it? Should I re-shoot it? ...Or give up?

The engine appears blurry, especially in the cab area. It also appears oversharpened in an attempt to correct it. The scene as a whole doesn't really work for me.

I can't comment on whether the engine is blurry or not, but I really like the scene as is. (Your similiar Norfolk Southern shot rocks!) There could be some minor cropping if you wish as the shot appears to the naked eye to be a bit square. Regardless ofwhether you get this one on or not, I'd definitely go back and reshoot the scene a few times.

I suspect it will get on with just some cropping top and right.

I've been bad about motion blur lately.

It's hard to avoid when the flash's sinc speed is 1/250 second!
