Pic looks good to me. Crisp, clear and I like the subject/angle of the shot. The only thing that might hang it up is the lighting. I think its a good shot though.

The colors are pretty washed out. It isn't a full out glint shot, so I think that will work against you. I have a pretty bright monitor and can see the two employees but they take much attention away from the train.

Personally, I really like it. Its a different flavor of picture than normally here on RP.net [and I hope its not rejected b/c of that] and its nice to see some atristic shots. Only two problems I see are its small crop size and the nose being dark. But the darkness of the nose adds some interesting sharpness to the image.

First of all, It might help if you post the link in here after it's screened.

I don't think the issue here is departing from the "norm". It's more of a lighting issue than anything. As mentioned, it's not a full fledged glint shot and looks more like a dark nosed wedgie. I also noticed some darkness in the top corners. It would probably be best to save this one your personal collection and try again under more favorable conditions.

Is there a link to this shot either accepted or rejected so that more of us can make our determination?
