Shot is too "in your face". Loosen it up a bit.

I'd crop the overhead wire off the top and see if that helps. Otherwise, appeal it if you disagree with the rejection. Nice catch.

I reuploaded it(http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=171908) and it was rejected for "bad angle" and "incorrect upload" so I decided to forget about that photo and upload the roster shot I took of the same engine.(http://www.railpictures.net/viewqueued.php?id=171913)

The bad news is that the roster shot has more wires in it than the original but I've uploaded others in the same place with the wires in it..........we'll see what happens.

I think those power lines are killing this shot. I don't think it's much of an "in your face" type issue as it is the lines. Now the wonderful magic of Photoshop can be great in a situation like this one.

Noticing the wire...

I have had a few shots rejected because the wire(s) was a distraction (hence, bad angle). I am more aware now when I set up for a shot, to walk a few extra steps to get them out of the shot. Of course, if you can't feasably take enough steps, zoom in a little, or snap the train at a moment where you know you will be able to crop the wires out later. In those situations, I draw an immaginary line on my LCD screen (as a crop line), so I will know to snap before the train gets to it. Just some helpful advice.

Well..........I got it accepted by photoshoping the overhead wires.I never thought I could do that,but for now on I better try to take photos with the wires out of the photo.
