To be fair, I think that shot is a borderline High Sun rejection, but the lighting on the lead engine is not optimal at all. Lots of shadow on that right side.

About a year ago there were several high sun threads which taught me alot about why that rejection is used. One way to get a High Sun is to have a large portion of the area below the anticlimber (Front Walkway) in shadow. Seeing as this area on your shot is almost entirely in shadow, I'd say that's why it was rejected. It is also flirting with being backlit.
