Default Bad cropping

Hi guys I need some thoughts about this photo. Its bad cropping can anything be done to it? Also is it just me or does it lean down to the left? For some reason many of my photos do. Thanks. Rejected Photo

I'm not by any means an expert on this, but I think that you should cut some of the sky out. Maybe even some of the tracks, but I'm not sure about that.

To me it needed rotation to the right and then tightened up like this example.

Dave's edit is exactly what I woulda done so I won't do it again. Just curious why you didn't take it horizontal to include the station. That's RR related too! And some of us woul dlove to see what it looks like.

Ah, the dreaded problem I am plagued with also, one leg being shorter than the other. I'm just kidding, but its funny you say that because it is a known fact that I cannot take a level photo. Everything you see of mine on RP has been rotated in one way or another. On my Fuji S7000 i used to use the display grid on the LCD screen to make sure things were level. It's just the way you hold the camera and look through it. I have found that I do tend to tilt my head slightly when taking pics so I try to correct myself and end up taking it unlevelly the other way. Haha

The vertical crop doesn't do much for me in this case. Just my pocket change...

I will second what Andrew said about the horizontal shot as i think that it will be cool as there will be railroad related building that will add more to the beauty of the pic.

Looks like hacking some of the bottom worked.
