It looks OK to me, centering wise,... but I think it will be more appealing if you crop it closer (according to me ).
Just get rid of the right wing part and crop tighter to the tail (leave the whole tail, so you can still keep the nice sky background), cropping this way will also get rid of the majority of the grey concrete apron...

Centering-wise it´s OK. I´d rather have more sky (and this one is beautiful) than concrete, as Colin said.
I like the picture as it is. A closer crop would also be nice, although it may risk a motive rejection. As Walter said, a closer crop on the tail might allow for some of the nice bits of the sky to be in the picture. Cropping close to the horizontal stabilizer can bring a good result, IMO.
Hope it helps.

Thank you everyone. Personally, I try to avoid cropping parts of the aircraft if possible. If you were to browse my collection of photos on this site, you would find that I generally stick to the same type of crop from this and similar angles. Like someone said above, each to their own.
The 737-700 can seem very awkward at times with certain crops due to its proportions. But I purposely cropped the way I did so that the sky and some of the lit city skyline would be visible in the background. In my opinion, those elements are what make this shot worth uploading, especially since I already have two shots of this aircraft in the database.
Thanks for your help. It seems the general consensus is that the centering is ok. Lets hope the screeners agree. I will leave it in the queue.
