Default Worth a try?

Since it's tipping it down with rain where I am today, I've been spending some time looking back through my photos of last summer. I wondered if anyone has any thoughts on whether it would be worth trying to get this image accepted on RP?

I really like the scene but at the moment I think it would probably get dinged for 'poor cropping'. I'm unsure how to go about fixing it - if that's even possible...?

I REALLY like it Ron! That sky is pretty cool and I love the people down on those courts. That's a great scene and definitely worth a try. If anything take a tiny bit off of the top, but not too much. And then of course your usual post processing. Very nice!

Like ben, cut the top off to get the train in the 1/3 line, A touch more contrast to taste too?

I'd love to have seen more of the tennis courts and less of the sky.

Agreed with Joe!

Good shot, nonetheless!

Thanks for the comments. I've done another crop and uploaded it, so it's in the lap of the rejection gods now. When I opened the RAW file, I saw straight away why I cropped so much of the tennis courts off - the clubhouse is below where I was standing and the roof projects right into the (uncropped) shot.
