There are a lot of things working against you in your rejected shot, lighting being one of them. I'm not going to rate your photo, because I don't think that will benefit you at all. The screener gave you a few things that caused the photo to be rejected, but there are others as well.

Do you have photo editing software? Perhaps working with that a bit more could help you crop the picture to a more suitable size, even the horizon, and sharpen up the image. That will help, but it'll be tough to get this one accepted. Keep trying!

Has somebody hacked RP? When I click on the rejected photo link, I get redirected to the Microsoft home page!

I got "The page cannot be displayed" when I clicked the photo link. I copied the link, then pasted it into my address bar, and it worked.

You started the thread so I'll be honest...4. I basically made a list of what 10 through 1 would include and look like. You used an angle thats hard to criticize since its the most common which is not a good thing IMO. The subject is nothing out of the ordinary dropping another point. It is also blurry, too small, wrong dimensions should be at least 600X800 for verticals or 800X600 for horizontal, and a bit unlevel. It also suffers from "high sun", which, honestly, I can really care less about if it is a good photo but thats probably in the screeners mind too. There is a pole sticking out of the engine which is another thing I don't care about but I'm sure that takes something away from it. To me it also looks a TAD bit overexposed, but I prefer darker photos anyway. Things going for you here is the rise in grade in the distance, but I would have telephotoed into it and made it appear more dramatic. I stand by my 4.

Head on tele shots are a dime a dozen on RP, so to get accepted, it's got to be technically good.

Here are things you can do to fix this shot, assuming you have a large enough image to at least submit a 600 X 800 image.

1.) Level it
2.) Sharpen it, assuming the problem isn't in the original focus.
3.) Darken it slightly.

Here are things you can do if you go back and take more photos in that spot.

4.) Walk 20 steps forward so the pole and wires are no longer in the picture.
5.) Shoot later or earlier in the day to avoid high sun.
6.) Include more space on either side of the train.

As is, I would rate your shot a 4; by doing the first 3 steps you might get it up to a 5. By taking a better shot on another day, I might give you a 7, but guys who like tele-mashes might give you a 10!

Almost any computer imaging program will allow you to crop. You often get a copy of Photo Shop Elements when you buy a scanner. My HP computer at work (basic cheapo PC) came with a program called ArcSoft Photo Studio which was bundled with the basic Windows XP software. If you look under the "all programs" tab, you may find that you already have basic photo editing software on your computer.

The best of the under $100 programs is probably Photo Shop Elements 4.0. It does most of what the expensive pro level programs can do. Maybe somebody else will point you to some free or reasonably priced shareware that you can download.

What you need is:

The ability to sharpen
The ability to crop
The ability to adjust levels
The ability to adjust colors.

The rest is nice, but you need the basics.

Good luck.

If you don't want to spend any money download Picasa from Google. It will give you the ability to do the four things Michael mentioned. And it is free.

I would rate it as a 3, only because I like the compostion.
Image quality is very bad, and as mentioned the photo is crooked.
You can use Irfanview for free, and it is a fairly powerful image editing program.

Click on 'download' and you're all set.
