Default Balance Reject


This got rejected for poor composition/balance, but I'm just not seeing what I could do to improve it. I definitely wanted to include the rails in the foreground being illuminated by the headlights. Hopefully a few new sets of eyes can give me some ideas on how to improve it. Also feel free to comment on the overall quality of the photo as well, since this is one of my first dusk/dawn attempts with my new camera. Any feedback is much appreciated. Thanks!

If it were me, I'd crop a bunch of the right side off, right down the split in the trees in the rear of the shot..

I might actually go the other way. I think the color of the sky is one of the highlights but the trees on the left dont do much so cropping the left side a bit might help.
