But if you know this, you can obviously crop in advance and hope that the screeners are happy..

I agree with you on the cropping issue. To me there is a lot times where there is more to view and in the view that just the train. I personally look at everything in all the pics on RP and not just the focal point. I have taken numerous shots wider than planned just because there was more to the surroundings that appealed to me. Unfortunately RP's preferences is what it is and I just chalk those pics up to "RP's lose" and move on.

FWIW, after some further editing and revising, the image was accepted. Thanks very much for the helpful suggestions.

Thanks, Jim--your succinct comments were extremely helpful in directing me to what I needed to do in processing; novice me hadn't figured out the impact of exposure on the color of a picture. I very much appreciate it!
