Default Bad cropping reject

I just had this pic rejected for bad cropping. I wanted to emphasize how small the two footers are, and I do have more of the photo to work with. Any suggestions?

I think the reject comes from much too much dead space above, and maybe a little below.

Personally, I like it the way it is, but you now how it goes... it's an objective opinion thing.

I think it maybe that the track is dead center down the shot, Try cropping out about 1/2 the track or so and see if that helps. Take some off the Right side so its not so centered to? I do like the shot.

Good shot, but the question is, do you really need all of that sky? If I were you, I would crop 1/2 of it, just like milwman suggested. Another caution is that the shot was taken on, it looks like, a cloudy day. You still might have a hard time getting it published because of that. Still, keep shooting.

I need some help myself with this shot that I have had rejected four times for the same reason: http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=465418221

Thank you.

You cropped it too tightly, there's no breathing room to the left of the photograph and the wires don't add anything to it.

Thank you.
Didn't you already post that rejection in your own thread?

Yes, but I'd figure since this thread is about bad cropping, I would post it. Well, I gave some more breathing room in front of the locomotive, but it still got rejected, for a sixth time. I'm not sure if the fence is any issue because the train is about to pass on the left of it. Thank you.
