Default What to Crop ?

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=587915651

Having finally managed to get a reasonable quality scan of a slide at one of my favourite locations, its been rejected for bad cropping.

What would you suggest here ? Should I crop the sky, or the right hand side up to the viaduct, or a combination of both ?

Thanks

Crop some off the left and the bottom and you should be good to go.

Tried that - somehow it didn't look right. Played around and cropped a little of the sky, some of the bottom and most of the right hand side and then...........success
