Default Bad angle/bad cropping

Hi. This photo was rejected for bad cropping and angle. What could I do about the cropping, and how could I make this a better angle in the future? Thanks.

You cut off the left side of the train, and there's way too much dead space on the right side.

Pic also has a slight tilt to the right.

You are too close to the tracks with too wide of an angle lens. As your lens angle gets wider, you have to stand farther from the tracks, so you don't just see the nose of the train. Put the center of focus 2/3 to the right, not in the middle of the pic.

Not much you can do there... image quality is borderline and there is a lot of deadspace on the one side and not enough train on the other. Even with enough train and less dead space it would be kinda a pretty mediocre shot given the wedgie angle and the subject. I'd honestly save for the personal.

Is this Encintas? There are better angles to be found for trains in both the afternoon and the morning.
