Default Cropping Help

this one got rejected for bad cropping. Can it be fixed?

As far as being accepted to RP.net, no, because of the really distracting shadow directly to the right.
The picture is too centered, take some off of the left there, and you'd have a decent shot if that shadow wasn't there.

Certainly some needs to come off the left side of the frame. And then probably the bottom. Start with that and see where it leads. The train is too centered right now.

Glenn might be right about the shadow. I didn't notice it the first time, but then I'm no screener.

I'm wondering about the color. I don't think I have ever seen a Amtrak unit with that bright of blue before.

I think you might be able to get away with the shadow - it doesn't impact the engine that much. I do agree that the color looks off. As far as the cropping, you might try something like the attached. Hope you don;t mind my playing with your image.

Thanks Guys I reduced the saturation and sent it in with the cropping as suggested and it was still rejected for cropping. The screeners seem not to like the cropping and I wish i could get a better explaination since I shoot here frequently and don't want to make the same mistake. Screeners if your reading please give me a hint as to what I need to change.

Thanks
Joe
