Yeah, the train is blurry because it's moving. Or did they reject it because it either needs more blur or none at all?

Thanks.

What were you going for? Motion blur? You need a longer shutter speed, Maybe 1/80 at 200 ISO possibly?

That barely blurry stuff doesn't cut it. Either freeze it, or blur it much more aggressively.

Not enough foreground, too much sky, and you can chop off a chunk of the right side without harming the impact of the tree (get rid of the stuff in shadow and the switch stand).

Also, make friends with somebody at the elevator and see if you can sweet-talk them into spotting that distant switcher in front of the colorful trees some sunny evening.

Dave is right, but I suspect a Distracting Shadows rejection is eventually coming your way.

Not to mention letting him trim all those weeds down.

It is hard to find a happy medium for shots like this...you want it to be just blurry enough to see some detail, but not too blurry, but if you blur it to little, it looks incidental. Nice shot though...it may not conform to RP standards, but I like it, but it is worth trying again and perfecting.
