Default Bad cropping rejections - help!

Both of these images were rejected this am for bad cropping. I attempted to use the rule of thirds but it is difficult because there are distracting shadows on the left side of the picture. Any ideas?

Original rejection:

Resubmitted rejection:

Wow, that's a hard one for me...I think you would have been better off if you had a shot with the whole signal bridge in it. I think that's what's really messing you up...

Just my two cents...

I think the first one is better, but take off space on the right and bottom.

The first image is definitely the one to go with. It also looks as if you need to rotate it CCW a little bit and I would crop some plain sky off the top as well as crop bottom and right as previously mentioned.

train is too far to the left. Distracting shadows in the foreground. highway bridge is annoying. Focus is grat, no blur, good depth of field, great sky!
