It is a minor point maybe, but on the first one I think the train is a bit too far to the right, it is in more of an exiting the frame position than entering the frame. Probably the screener doesn't like the extreme bottom position, I happen to like it, oh well. It has been done before on RP but maybe this time the particular screener just didn't go for it.

EDIT: well, the previous RP shot is a horizontal, see my blog, perhaps with a vertical it is just too big a spread. Also, the mountainside is nice but not exactly dynamic, maybe the image is a bit on the empty side.
