Default Bad Cropping

Reason(s) for Rejection:
- Bad Cropping: Most often this means that the composition of the photo is poor as it relates the cropping of the image.

Any advice for editing, or should I just forget it?

Thats hard, because there is a lot of objects near the train like the telephone poles and that gate thing to the right. I cropped it in photoshop, I don't know if it will get accepted. Maybe other forum members can help you better.

Too much random stuff on the sides in its original. Sammy's crop, I would say it is now too tight. Some screeners may find this a bad angle shot as well.

I sent in a similar photo to this one and I was told that the train doesn't look very good when it's really big in the frame like that. I'm guessing that's why this one was rejected, so I'm going to drop it.
Thanks for trying to help though guys.

I'm learning alot from the comments and advice I read here, especially about viewing my own pix with a "critical eye." For example, I rarely think of things like wires, fire hydrants, or telephone poles as confounding factors to a photograph. Where I live, it's very hard to find a place where railroads are NOT surrounded by those things (which I still consider more as character than clutter)...or...they're shunted along curvy, weed-choked, or trash-strewn ROWs. I don't think I've actually even seen an approaching train until it's about a hundred yards from me (with the exception of one location, which is now a "reject" because the locos' trucks are obscured by a stone bridge railing).

I envy you fellas in the western US and Canada.
Great scenery, great light, no "clutter."
