I would crop a bit closer to the engine on the right. As it is you're cropping out just a small percentage of the landing gear, which is kind of annoying.

But I'd be more concerned about the light, which isn't spectacular.

I've also struggled with some A380 crops in my editing as of late. Stupid engines and landing gear are all over the place!

Lighting is not good at all in this picture.

Yea.. wasn't concerned about uploading this picture at all. Just trying to figure out all the crazy crop rules around here...

Oh, gotcha. Basically, you can crop engines and gear, so long as it's a justified crop, and you're not just cropping off the very end.

I learned that when I asked about this shot:

Previous to that, I had thought that an engine or gear crop would be an auto-reject.

On your image, you could crop in to the engine and the nearest wing gear, since they're just about vertically in line. I think that would be justifiable.
