Default PEQ'd trolley pole

I tried to upload a photo of one trolley pole with bird nest against sky that I liked - got a PEQ:

Do you think it's worth a rework (which way then?) or appeal or would you reccommend me to leave it?

It's a neat shot, but I think the problem for RP is that it doesn't readily say "trolley pole" as opposed to "high tension lines". That is, I don't think they find the picture "railroady" enough.

Do not, under any circumstances whatsoever, click here. Don't even think about it. I'm warning you!

I don't think you really captured the subject that well, either...

All right. It just didn't come to my mind that if I include the whole actual catenary support arm (what is it's proper name in English?), it still doesn't look railroady enough for american eyes. The full frame is actually a bit bigger than reject but I wanted to crop it as tight as possible to make the reason of the photo - the bird nest - prominent. I'm attaching full frame for reference.

So if I meet something like this next time, what should I keep in my mind so could catch the railroady feel?

Something to help confirm that the subject is in fact a RR structure, like a name board on a station, rails trailing off into the distance, etc.

Here are a few of similar composition that I have.
I didn't bother to submit this one, but it is very similar to yours as far as not railroady enough, but in the 'I like it anyway category':


This was submitted and I believe also hit with PEQ. Maybe the screener that day is afraid of bees?:
