Default Bad Cropping Help

Hello... again.

I got this photo rejected for bad cropping and need help understanding why? I'm definately not as good as many people out on this forum, but am not sure what I can do to fix this photo?

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=929370&key=0

Would taking off that boxcar to the left of the signal on the left help? Or the entire signal in general? Or is it something else?

Thanks for the help,
Alex

I like it a is, truth be known. But I'm no screener. Sorry. I may would take some off the bottom and a hair off the top. Also, change the location. That ain't Waxhaw.

I might crop off the railroad crossing on the far right and have just the train and the car.

I'm with Greg. Also, I think your image needs a bit of CCW rotation. The bulding looks as though it is leaning to the right.
