Default Bad cropping help

I submitted a phototonight and it was rejected for bad cropping. Ok I thought I'll tighten it up a bit, then it gets rejected for - Uncorrected Reupload: This image appears to be an uncorrected resubmission of a previously rejected photo. You are welcome to re-upload images as long as you have made improvements to them. Please do not let this be a problem in the future.

That's a new one to me. I think this is a great shot with part of the engine in the foreground but not too distracting.

The resubmittal.

I assume that you cropped off some of the top and bottom? At a first glance, probably like the screner, i couldn't tell an imidate difference. Try cropping out the Cargill loco. I know that might sound bad, but I think it might have a better chance without it.
Just my $0.02

It's just another photo without the Cargill engine in it. I cropped several inches off the left side too.

yes, but there isn't much of the cargill engine to begin with. Plus, it has that CN unit it in which makes it not the avearge BNSF shot. You can use this if you want. I cropped out the Cargill and some of the mountians to even it out.

I like the first photo better but the cargil GP has to be taken out of it I think.

By the way is that third engine NREX 5917?

Well to me the little bit of the Cargill adds to the photo. I wish the approvers would be a little more specific when they deny something. And yes that is NREX 5719

The cargil engine is cool but I would only assume that's what they wanted out of the photo.

I agree 100%, the screeners should tell you what you need to change in order for your photo to be accepted. Sometimes I fix a photo and it gets rejected for something else, I fix that and it gets rejected.........it's very frustrating and annoying.

It would probably be better to add more of the Cargill engine there. I can barely tell it's there. Crop it out, and the photo just becomes a wedgie of common power. If it was framed this way, I'd say your'e probably SOL, but you can always appeal.

You did what I would have suggested had I been the first to reply. The derail was too far left to leave in. I liked the carnival-like lights; reminds me of those little kid cars that circle a small track. I hope you got more pictures of this locomotive!

With "meet" photos, does one get more of the "going away" unit?

Adding more of the Cargill geep would create more of a frame for the approaching BNSF train. Bad cropping doesn't always mean it needs to be cropped tighter
