Last Saturday, I went to NJ Transit's Gillette Station to catch some of the extra trains running on the Gladstone Branch for the annual Far Hill Steeplechase Race. It was a chance to catch some equipment that does not normally operate on this line.

At the time of day trains were operating, the nose of the lead unit (and the other diesel sets operating on the line) would have been backlit. Hence I went for shooting the train on more of an angle. Since trains all trains on the line were operating in the direction that the "one way" signs were pointing, I tried to make use of them in the shot:

I wanted to get your insights on the rejection. Is the one way sign towards the rear of the lead unit really that much of a distraction or is it the totality of that with the station sign blocking a window on the coach behind it the culprit?
