Default Bad Cropping Rejection

Good evening gentlemen.

Any ideas on the following reject? I'm not sure what to do, and I don't what to go too tight on the train either. Does the "bigger picture" work, in your opinion, or should I let this one go?

As always, much appreciated!

I like it as is. Obviously they want you to crop tighter. How much I don't know.

Bummer. I like it as it is (the 2nd version). Perhaps they are thinking the nose is too close to the center. At this distance my eyes don't see "nose", they just see "train", which is in a nice position.

For RP purposes, perhaps try cutting a good bit off the right, to near the black thing in the mud, and maybe a smidge off the left. For personal collection, leave it as it is.

Can't really crop it more... IQ is starting to suffer. I intended this shot to be wide, and it is staying so.

As you say, bummer. I'm not losing sleep over this
