Default Cropping again - I'm just very poor at it.

I just had this rejected for cropping. I knew it would be, because I seem to be lousy at composing these trains-in-the-distance shots.

I guess the rooftops in the foreground are a problem, but I'm not sure what will be left if I crop them out.

So, can someone give me some advice please?

Something like this?

What's the original image look like? Is there any more sky or scene to the left or right that can be included?

I left it as per the original.

That way, I've got room for cropping, but I can't make it any wider.

You'll get the hang of cropping soon enough, just hang in there, and learn the rule of thirds. It'll come to you, as it did me.

I tried again with this, but got the same bad cropping rejection.

Unfortunately, this time they added, "Poor Image Quality". So I guess that's the end of that. Another one for my private files.
