I'd agree with Kevin. Other than the vignette, I think the edit looks appropriate for a blue hour shot. But the vignette seems like too much here, and personally I'm not really a fan of them in most...

Though not usually a fan of photographers being in the shot, I do think this is a decent one. Seems the biggest problem though is just that the train is too small compared to the rest of the...

Yeah, always cool when they're friendly and happy to talk and be photographed, but it doesn't always come across in a image if that's part of the rejection reason.

Not sure if this contributed, but I think there's certain wariness to post photos of crew working in the modern day, especially when clearly visible, given the current climate of the railroads and...

I know for this shot he was trying to do pan shots with the drone, I've seen him post about experiments on facebook. I believe he is using some sort of ND filter for the camera. I've seen his...

I agree with the prior comments about the overall edit and possible camera settings issues. Would also add that the center composition isn't doing this image any favors. Could easily get to a more...

I had a period a long while back where I got some of these, and it was due to something weird happening with my export settings. If the raw image out of the camera is fine from a quality perspective,...

You are also missing the reporting mark. Instead of just 6014, include the reporting mark, which I'm guessing is "WAMX 6014".

Also I don't know your area or this particular locomotive, but as far...

I'd also comment on the composition/balance. The train here is vertically centered which I am not a fan of. I would recommend choosing to either add top or add bottom (depending on preference/what...

Lighting aside, all three suffer from some composition issues with the subject vertically centered with dead space on the bottom. At minimum I would suggest something more closely following the ROT...

Agree with Kevin's comments, and another item worth noting is that just because it's a rarely photographed location doesn't mean that's clear to the screeners or the average viewer. At the end of the...

I've seen the same issue with using different aspect ratio than what the TO24 thumbnail is, but it's usually not as noticeable when it's that small.
