Rejected for poor cropping. I was surprised. Seemed rather straight forward.

TIA,

Michael

You cut off the train.

You can't cut off the train. (Yes, there are some shots in the DB that break this rule, but not the majority of them).

Either the entire train has to be in the shot, or it needs to be cut off by an object in the shot.

Yes, you cut off the train on the left. It is also borderline tight on the right side.

Cutting off part of the train I do not think will result in a rejection.

Bad crop is almost always a centered subject. Try bringing the engine
lower in the frame. If you crop where the train is not cut off by the
end of the frame, bonus points.

Mitch is correct, it's more the cropping of the subject, try a little more room on the right too. there's plenty of photos in the database that have the train cut off (like the one below) and.............you do have dust spots

Thanks, good points. I can't believe I didn't see those dust spots! Digital 101, scan every image for dust boogers.

Well, let me recommend that you don't cut off the train... allowed or not.
