Pardon me for being so negative, but there are many things affecting this photo's acceptance, along with the harsh light that washes out all of the color and depth right out of the scene. The fact that the asphalt on the left is faded is not helping create any contrast here either.

I think "bad angle" and/or "horizon unlevel" would have been appropriate rejections as well in my opinion- though it would probably still get rejected if it was level. I have found (for the most part- becuase there are always exceptions...) that shots taken from above at a straight-on angle have to perfectly lined up, or they have to be shot from a slight angle off to the side. It's an all-or-nothing proposition.

I would try going back to this spot earlier in the day or later in the evening, and try again.

Good Luck!!
