Default Cropping Question

Had this rejected for cropping, I've got an idea of what to do but would like some more experienced opinions.

They want the train closer to the left edge. Fix that and you will be good to go, maybe up the brightness a little too.

I agree with Nikos, it looks slightly underexposed. They might be looking for a crop like this, or maybe slightly tighter. Did you happen to get a frame with the train a farther along? That would help with a crop like this. I really like the building up on the hill in the upper left, so I thought it should still be included in a tighter crop.

Thanks Jim I really like that one, I will keep it in mind for my next trip there.
I went with taking some off the left and it worked.

Exclamation

Don't you have any shots with the train further to the left?

I like the look as is, but you do need the train closer to the left side.

And if you dont, go with Jim's suggestion, I might take a tad more off the top too

I was thinking that crop as well, but that building way up on the hill was too cool not to include. So, when you back, get the train farther to the left so you can keep that building.
