Default Bad Cropping Double Trouble

First too much dead space, now I remove the dead space and its still 'bad cropping'

2nd rejection:

1st rejection:
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=873659&key=0

What is wrong with it?

1st Reject: It's too tight on the right side, and that pole thing on the right of the nose of the engine bugs the living daylights out of me.

The second one is closer but there needs to be some happy medium between the two. Not so tight on the right side, not so loose on the left side. Also, I can't tell what that plunger looking thing is. Is it on the lead loco?

A bit of advice, Ian... which you are free to dump if you like, but the telemash on a curve like that isn't working for me. There's nothing behind it that you are telemashing into (like a mountain range) and the overall effect of the shot is that I am wondering where there is room for me, the observer, in the shot.

I accept constructive critisim, it helps learn. I don't have a telephoto lense either, just a P&S with a 100MM lense

I also suggest you lock your crop in your photo editor to a 3:2 or 5:4 ratio. The squareness is killing you.

P.S.: Nice whiteface.

I gotta see if that's the same NS/BNSF set I see when I'm in California.
