Default Maintenance PEQ

I've been trying to shoot outside the wedgie box a bit recently. I took a trip to a local heritage line and spent a while snapping the volunteers at work. I found this scene quite interesting, but it was rejected for PEQ. Is it not 'railroady' enough? Is there any chance of getting this sort of material on to the database or am I wasting the screener's time?

It needs work. The whole scene looks flat. Try cropping vertically to start with.

You don't happen to have a bit more on the bottom to bring the "work area" into the frame a little better, do you? This type of shot seems to be a real tough sell here, but I like what you have. It does need some work though as Joe stated.

Yep, I uploaded a different angle with more foreground which I spent some time working on, but got a rather stern "Uncorrected Reupload" rejection. "Please do not let this be a problem in the future" is a bit off-putting so I think I'll stick with what I know from now on.
