Default Rejection reason, please explain

Hello once more. Recently there was a post similar to the one that I have post but slightly different. This photo was rejected for Poor Esthetic Quality which I don't understand. If it was rejected for common power or bad cropping I would understand but if some could help explain how the reason for rejection fits I would like to know. I would like to re-shoot this shot on a sunnier day. Thank for you help.

I"m surprised. Other than it not being level (look at the verticals), it's a nice composition. Maybe the screener hit the wrong button?

I agree - nice shot. Would it be possible to try again when it's sunnier out?

I like the shot, nicely executed. Needs some rotation, perhaps hack some off the top of the crop. The VIA cart in the foreground is what I like the best in this photo.

These shots seem to either work or not work in the eyes of the screener. Photography is, afterall, subjective. The screener could have rejected it for poor lighting or cloudy/common. Maybe he did hit the wrong button, but to me, this is a shot that needs to be tried again on a sunny day. I'd also crop righter, mostly off the top and the right side of the frame. As mentioned above, a slight rotation to the left is needed too.

I'd rack this up as a practice shot and get back there when the weather is better.

Nice composition, but it is cloudy and it seems to me that the front left wheel on the wagon seems a little blurry. I would say try to set this shot up again when it is sunny.

I like it, and I like it cloudy. If it was sunny, it would probably shadow the cart and lose that element...
Rotate a couple degrees CCW and resubmit?

I agree with everyone else that this shot needs to be rotated but it looks like im going to be the first one to say that im not sure if I like this shot or not.

However I do think its a great idea and this location and idea has the potential to make a great shot. I think shooting this in the early morning, or late evening with a more direct light would make this look a lot better(assuming the light hits it that way), maybe a slightly different angle, possibly shot horizontal. Id wait for the train to enter the frame a little bit more to block the subdivision in the background which is a little distracting. But thats just my 2 cents..
