OH NO! You labeled the locomotive as being an Amtrak unit, when it's a Norfolk Southern! You might want to change that before somebody has a hissy fit!

But in all seriousness, appeal it I suppose...

Do you have any other places to shoot than just the station platform? I have seen lots of photos from that area on here and it looks like you could get some much better shots if you walked around some.

The shots you have posted are not terrible, I just feel you could do better by trying out some other locations.

How does "at the end" equate to "first?"

Also, Darth Vadar is Anakin Skywalker, played by Hayden Christensen. James Earl Jones was the voice, but the only time you ever see Vadar out of his mask, he is Hayden.

Lando Calrissian would be the main role played by an African-American actor (Billy Dee Williams) and as I recall, he is still alive at the very end of all six parts.

Umm, that's the Oakland Amtrak Station, NOT Jack London Square. JLS is the street running.

Its seriously not that hard... A one legged hamster on meth can do better than the stuff you've shown us of that NS motor.

I'm 1200 miles away from JLS and I already had ideas of where I'd shoot it if I had the ability to.. And I'll guaran-damn-tee you it would not be from that Oak Street crossing.

Sincerely,
Street Running King

Not quite. When, near the end of "Return of the Jedi" Vader askes Luke to take of the mask "so I can see you with my own eyes" we get to see his face, and it definitely isn't Hayden - though of course it isn't James Earl Jones either. The thing that hacks me off most is that after releasing the 3 "prequels" Lucas went back and edited the scene at the end of "Return" where you see Yoda, Obi-Wan and Vader/Anakin to insert the young Anakin instead of the old one. Might as well have edited out Sir Alec Guiness and replaced him with Ewan McGregor.

BTW, the rejection without any reasons looks soft to me, though I think the issue might actually be that the camera is focused on the middle of the NS unit and not the front, so the number boards are short of the plane of focus . . .

Then don't comment? Being quiet is better than making yourself look like a fool.

I noticed there are some public parking structures adjacent to the street running.

You missed my point... They included the scenery to let you know where they were.

I'm not criticizing, just explaining what works in a situation like this. You want to show where the train is, not just the train. I have been to Jack London many times, and I've seen lots of pics from there. Your images didn't show me where I was.
