Help with 3 rejections
Hi all,
Need some friendly advice on possible fixes for these rejections.
This one got rejected for Bad Crop/Bad Angle,Im After a close up of just the front engine since its wearing the new scheme.

Tried this one twice,one rejected for composition/balance which does have quite abit of deadspace but trying to include the new set of signals on the left,tried tighter crop after first rejection but got bad cropping rejection.

Tried this one aswell,first up was quite a tight crop with 4x6 style but that one got bad cropping rejection,tried again by not cropping as tight but got rejected for distracting shadows which seems like a joke.

The shadows are obvious as it was taken in early morning so sun wasnt high enough to lighten the platform and track in that part,the shadows are obstructing a very small portion on the nose of the train which is nowhere near as bad as some of the backlight nose shots being accepted.

For number 1 I'd say you're crop is too aggressive on the top, and you've got too much of the front of the loco and not enough of the side.

Number 2 (one of the two links doesn't work), but, I'd cut out the mainline track, add more room to the top, more room on the left.

Number 3... that's a judgment call for the screeners... I wasn't there, but, it looks like that shot would've worked just fine a moment before you took that shot, and to be fair, there's a pretty big difference between an artistic backlit shot and an artistic shot with distracting shadows.

Leightonfield? Anybody must have been brave to hang around there (or much of SW Sydney) with a valuable camera! Have to hope there's no escapees from the nearby Villawood Immigration Detention Centre :lol: :lol:

For the second one, if you're trying to emphasize a vertical object (the signal) and combine that with a tight angle on the train with nothing else of interest in the photo, then you need to go with a vertical crop crop on it, not horizontal.
