Default Bad Cropping? Help Please

Hey guys,

I'm new to the forums, but I do have several shots on RP.
I am currently trying to get this shot into the database:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...4&key=88702499

One of the reasons is "Too Dark", and will do my best to further brighten it.
However, does anyone have any ideas as to where I went wrong with cropping? In other words, it would be nice if someone could give me some insight/ suggestions on how to "better" crop this picture?

Thanks in advance,
Stephen

I think it's a little too tight on the bottom, and the right myself.

I agree you're a little tight on the bottom, but I'd almost say to add a bit more on the left if you have anything there . . .

Thanks for the help guys. I was just waiting to see what was said, and I too agree that the bottom is a little too tight. Unfortunately, that is how the picture goes, the way I took it. I have several other shots similar, but not the same light.
I'll see if I can add some more to the left.

Thanks

Also needs a hint of CW rotation.
