Default croppable?

I wanted to try the opposite of my previous attempt at a crossing shot that ended up being too colorful haha. I like this shot, but i do kind of feel there is something im not seeing about it. give me a second opinion on it so i know what i might be doing wrong, or why the screeners are rejectin the thing

I think you could crop off the pedestrian gate and top and/or bottom to accommodate the aspect and be fine. The crossbuck/lights being centered is kind of a nuisance.

I think it is fine as it is, but try a wee bit off the right and a bit off the top. Nice composition.

I think the cropping is perfect, for what little that is worth. Very nicely composed to my eye.
