I think that it may be cropped a little too close. Dont crop so tight. And dont sharpen the image so much. The tree looks oversharpened.

One problem you may run into is distracting shadow. Theres that odd shadow on the right side of the front. The shadow isnt too bad, but it may be a reason for rejection next time around.

Hopefully that works! Cute little trolly.

If that were my shot I would personally leave more of the wires in the picture, which would as the previous user mentioned allow the image to be cropped not quiet as tight.

Bill,

Neat car!

I'd show more of the wire and as a rule, it's better to leave more space in front of instead of behind a train/trolley/etc. It gives the trolley some space to move into, often called "breathing room."

Good luck,

Michael Allen
