Default Cropping Genie

I know I have been out of this for a while and I am getting older eyes, but I not sure where I am off here, especially on the 2nd shot.....

First one, could have been better crop: http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...72&key=3727171

Second one, I thought looked pretty good: http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...15&key=6054993

Any help is appreciated......

might center the train a little, but if I were you I would go back to the second and then trim the top down to the top of the signal mast. I would take out all those dark trees on the right.

Well I was going to say crop the signal but I dont know now......
But other than that you have some image quality issues, the whole image is less than sharp and from the the units right its blurry.

I think the problem is the dark right hand side. It is large, distracting and that the screener does not like that. If the right side was in sun, the composition would please the screener, IMHO.
