Default Need help cropping

I need some advice on how to crop this photo since it was rejected twice for bad cropping. The first link is the photo as taken, no cropping. You may need to click on the photos to enlarge them. Thanks.

Let's see the rejection links. Links to Photobucket tell us nothing.

I'd try to find a happy medium between the two. Crop tighter but not as tight as the second. I like the first one but think it can be cropped down a little more.

Default Perhaps not a cropping issue

rather, composition. The snow in the foreground takes up 2/3 of the shot and the train is a comparatively minor detail in the background. Rhetorically speaking, is the picture about snow in a field or a train?

I'd suggest (much) less snow, much more train.

Just my humble $ .02; I'v has several rejected for cropping.

Yeah, I think basically there is to much "dead" space.
