Composition Is The Devil
 
I'm seriously thinking of cancelling. Their description leaves no factual picture in my mind what they mean by it. The train is not centered, its not at the edges. Don't they believe the 'L' is coming out of the tunnel, perched up on uprights on the trestle, built in 1892, but motored with AC current.

Maybe it's too similar, too soon to your recently discussed and accepted shot. Will they take a vertical of this one? I would wait a while, but it's up to you.

I don't see where you included the details(1892 etc) you are referencing as "them" not believing in the remarks section.

Anyway, since I too occasionally photograph the 'L" I took the time to look at all your photos and spotted this one which would be a good example of balanced composition and there are two other takes of yours at the same location, one further away and the more recent.

I understand you maybe wanted another look but if I didn't know about your other photos I'd think this rejected a typical cramped "L" photo where room is limited.

As been noted the rejections are generic and are not tailored exactly to a specific photo. The rule of thirds I think is given as a general hint but does not mean if you don't put your subject in the middle it is not awkward.

The rejected might be close to accepted, a little more train and just little back???

I too get critical of rejections but with 3 nice images at this location I just don't see getting wound up about it???

You really don't have a valid gripe on this one sorry to say.

I fully agree with Charles here.

Likely based on this statement in the rejection description: The subject is awkwardly positioned in the frame.

It is, because the lower left side of the train is obstructed by the track from the low vantage point. Nothing to cure that short of getting a drone or renting a manlift.
