Default This time it is bad cropping

This time the reason for the rejection is "bad cropping" and not the usual "bad color"

My idea was to show the complete S curve with the train. Apparently the Screener did not agree with me Any chance to fix it? Any guidance on a better cropping will be welcome.

The "S" curve isn't the problem. You have too much dead space on the top. The trees aren't very appealing and almost give the image a square like appearance. I'd cut off everything on the top until you come to the top of the mountain that is shadowed.

Also, the image quality is quite poor. The train looks jagged.

To add to what Chase said, I would also like to see a bit more the the side of the engine.

Very nice shot, cut some off the right and top and you should be good.
Merry Christmas

The photo looks blurry or out of focus.

I think Travis is onto something. The poor quality looks to be a result of a wee bit too much sharpening.

It definitely gives the image a jagged look.

I do agree. It looks like taking the shot just a little earlier would have had the whole side of the train visible from loco to caboose. That shot should be a sure fire winner.
