Default Unlevel horizon, now bad angle

I just don't get it!

The engine is cut off in a terrible spot and it still is leaning to the left. If you fix the leveling, the next thing would be to crop some off of the bottom and right side (just short of the side of the "box" where the "Building America" text is). I think that might have a better shot, but you might want to let others chime in too.

It would be nice if RP rejectors would tell us what to do in their rejections. It's frustrating to get a rejection for one thing, then when you correct that they add another rejection.

Dave;

You've been around here long enough to know it doesn't work like that. For one thing, that assumes the same screener first rejected your shot for one thing, then the same screener rejected it for something else and that's probably not the case. In this case, correct me if I'm wrong, but several days went by between rejections. Also, maybe sometimes fixing one issue actually highlights the second issue that may have been missed before.

I don't really get the Bad Angle rejection here myself, truth be told. I'd think a Bad Cropping or Composition/Balance, even though I don't really see that either. However, if you got the pixels, consider going tighter. Much tighter, and making it a portrait. Like just under the numbers and just above the rook kind of tight.

I know I'm lucky with my accept ratio, but when something is rejected at times I'm at a loss for what to do. I really wanted to keep the flag, but I guess I'll go tighter and see what happens.

He was a conductor then, I vaguely recall, so isn't he a conductor now?
