Default First time submitter, opinions please

I've just got back my first news about submission rejection. I would welcome any critiquing. I thought maybe lowering the horizon.

It's way too tight in my opinion. Give more room around the train. Show the scene more. Not a lot to hold my interest. There may be some softness on the engine, too. The bird should be cloned out.

RP does not favor shots where the train is cutoff at the edge of the frame, preferring either the entire trailing train being visible or the train being cutoff by an element of the scene such as a tree or cut or structure.

Also, note that on RP one doesn't necessarily get every relevant rejection reason each time, but only one or two. So one ends up doing a fix and then getting a rejection for another reason. Here, the image is not sharp.
