Default What's wrong with the cropping?

I'm just curious as to what is wrong with the cropping in these photos, to better help me out. All were rejected for cropping.

Too much dead space, not enough train. For the first two, you probably need to crop in a tad tighter (but please ask yourself how many more wedgies we need of this type of power).

On the third, try taking a tad off the left and the top. I like how it's composed, and a minor cropping adjustment shouldn't hurt it any.

Hmm, so I don't know how many wedgies do we need of the same power, for example NS?

Personally I think the 2nd shot is a great shot, not a common shot out this way by any means.

These are really good shots. However, I have had no luck getting side shots like this uploaded and accepted. I think I've tried three or four. The only side/profile shot I have been able to upload is this...

You have some great work on here, even though they are great shots, just not what RP is looking for at this time.

Thanks Chris.I resubmitted the going away shot, but was told it's still going away! Some make it some don't. Same thing with side shots, I've had quite a few make it.

Heres just an idea for the next time you go out to that second spot. Zoom in on the lead engine and incorporate that mountain just in front of the the engine. Just an idea.
