To have done this angle correct, you needed to step over to your left some to shoot it. It's more :Bad Angle" than "Going Away."

I am with the screener and think a lot if those poles esp. near the top of the frame are leaning CCW. Open it up in whatever software you used and put a grid on top of it. I think you'l see it. It...

I do notice the building leaning. This is a different edit than the one I have hanging on my wall and I think it needed rotating by 1% CCW. It's a little odd to me that the screener added the unlevel...

Backlit

This is one of my favorite shots I have taken. I have a large metal print of it hanging n my wall and it has sold off of my web site more than any other L&C shot. But they did not agree with my...

Joseph is right and I was wrong. It needs a slight CW rotation. I get so many "leaning right" rejections, I typed CCW out of habit. SMH

A shame, too, as that is an odd array of switchers.

By the way, that first image of leaning to the left.

I am a litttle surprised they rejected it, too. But if I read this right, it was one reject olut of five submissions. If that s true, that's an amazing acceptance rate.

I'd like to get a drone, too. I don't machine gun my DSLR, so that is not deal breaker for me. If the folks in Washington could get us those stimulus checks, that'd be great

I hope you find this explanation meaningful enough, but you've got filtered sun here. Basically what MP 58 above me said. Otherwise the shadows were be more defined and the sky woould be bluer.

I may see them making it if the snow was still falling. Also, are these converted to B&W or is the color just muted due to the fog? Either way, I don't see it making RP

It looks like filtered sun to me, not direct sunlight. Between the dirty YN3 and the lack of anything else in the shot, I'd be surprised this one makes it in the database.
