Bad Cropping? Bad Angle? Poor lighting?

All of the above?

Blurry? Poor image quality? Also, there is sensor dust that stands out like a sore thumb in the sky and that's a big no-no...

I'm going to say high sun. The trucks appear to be in shadow. It also looks to be a tad on the dark side. It's not a bad photo by any means, but I just don't think it's the material RP is looking for.

Bad lighting, 5 p.m. or not, specks on the sky, and it looks a little unlevel. Since it is just another wedgie of a UP train, it needs to have a lot done right, or it will get rejected. There is nothing interesting otherwise to overcome those problems.

Bad Cropping? Poor Lighting (cloud filtered sun)? Dumb Location? You Need to Clean your Sensor? Maybe you need to let it go when its rejected?

No need for that response. I'm interested to hear what the rejection was...

Given that the screeners have only a so much time to pick the reason for rejecting a shot, I'll go with the all time favorite, HIGH SUN!

Nobody's mentioned the unlevel horizon yet, either.

Your an Admin?

The reason was high sun and bad angle.

Thanks for looking at my picture and making comments on it.

I've gotten 'High Sun' rejects from shots taken in the evening...it happens. But an appeal stating what time the shot was taken and why it might appear to be high sun (i.e. sun right on the nose) usually does the trick...

I have not viewed any of the repsonses to this post, but when I do, I bet they will say pretty much the same thing -- the sun is dead straight on the nose, throwing shadows on the side of the unit. The screener who doesn't know what time you shot it could have used the Distriacting Shadow rejection if he had wanted to.

The shot also looks slightly soft and I believe there is a brightness/contrast issue at work here. Lastly, I don't think the people, cars and buildings work at all in the shot especially cutting the man to the far right off at his knees.
