Default How Can I Improve?

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...key=1039182716
I got this reject for Bad Cropping today and another composition/balance. Does the house add anything to the pictures or should I just forget the image for RP?

Just not a good spot in my book. The house is too obstructed to help anything, and your shooting from the outside of the curve, if you could see the train around the bend it would work but this angle doesnt do anything to me.

Locomotive is too close to the left, there is serious glare and the tree is ugly.

Stand back more, more room on the left, I like the superelevation and the low sun.

Keep at it.
