Default High sun in the early-mid morning?

Got High sun rejection. Was taken around 9am give or take a few mins. Would an appeal do anything? Any workarounds?

Hmmm, looks to me like the lighting was fairly neutral, giving the high sun appearance. Not sure there is really anything that can be done, apart from trying again when the sun is a bit closer towards 45 degrees.

Meh, I don't see it. Like the saying goes around here, "I've seen worse get on here". The color is a bit much though.

High sun comes on early in the Summer months.

Shadows or not, like some others have said, it's a bit flat in lighting.

If it were a special move or not possible to get under better light (for instance, if later or earlier in the day would cause shadows from the trees or buildings), you simply want to show that trains DO run in the Summer at this location, or there are no trains to be expected an hour earlier or later, the only suggestion I could come up with would be to maybe warm the temperature of the image (more red /yellow) or play with the saturation in selective parts of the image A note describing what ever issues would not be resolved by reshooting may or may not help.

You can argue about High Sun or not, but the lighting is not that great. Looks like it was straight on the nose, leaving the sides in a bit of a shadow.

Poor lighting... In a case like this, get yourself in a position where you cannot see the shadow on the rail from the railheads. That way you went get any of that dead light that you see on the side of the train. (Note how well the nose is lit, that's all you would see if you aligned yourself as I suggest.)
