That is a powerful image. It would be lovely to leave it as is (haha!). But maybe for acceptance crop a bit off the top and the right. Shame it's not balanced right for RP. I know what the issue they're having is, it's the sun on the extreme left. Personally don't have an issue with it, but that might be what they are looking. Awesome shot again, Dave.

The yard is cut off awkwardly on the right, which throws the balance off on the shot. The sun is way left, but the glare and the emptiness underneath it just isn't helping conclude the scene. I'd go right, and lose the sun, but gain yard trackage. The loss of the sun would keep eyes from flying straight there, and make the sky and tonality more appreciated.

Well I like the sun in it. So I cropped about 1-1/2" off the right side.

The main problem I see is like Loyd said, your eyes jump right to the sun and the light rays then lead your eyes down to...nothing, since the yard is off to the right. Too bad you don't have a shot with the sun directly above the yard, could be a winner.

That lens flare is gonna kill it from past experiences. I love the shot. I dont see how the empty yard tracks cut off on the right would have added much to it
