My first thought - too much on the bottom, and the left. Not much, but does look slightly awkward.

I too agree with Kevin.
Word for word, in fact.

I thought maybe the train was too far to the left for the screener but the signal and light pole to the right nicely balance it out. I too run...

I don't understand this concept what so ever. Unless you are "seeking vengeance" on a screener or the site itself, or signed an exclusive contract, or think all your images can be seen for...

Joe, I think your shot *could* get in if you were able to adjust two issues. With regards to being backlit - it is, and in a way that does not necessarily improve the image. With that in mind, I...

Inconsistency has always been a prime issue here, but again,
better to be inconsistent in letting more in then less.

It's never bothered me what gets in, but rather, what does not,

I will (as often noted) proof my photos with "Auto-whatever" in my editing software.

Not much change with Auto-contrast, tone, nor color, though it did warm it a bit, maybe.

Crisp, colorful, sharp, perfectly exposed and unique - all factors I think override the fact that the nose is backlit. My first thought was to simply brighten the nose but it's as perfect an edit as...

It's rather amazing what a difference a few feet to the right, left, a bit high, lower, ect can make, as well as differences in processing.
