Yeah, it's leaning right by a good one-half of one percent. Would I have noticed without zooming in 500%? No way! :shock:

Other engines look more hulking/muscular but that Big Boy is l-o-n-g!

Just noticed: 4014 has "Big Boy" in chalk on the smokebox front- a nice historic touch!

I used to get upset about RP rejections (about 20% of the total).
Flickr was my place to post the rejects at first. That changed radically once my Flickr views exceeded my RP views. Non-rail shots...

Very high sun, but I think the subject engines' interestingness outweighs that!
They have every right to reject it, but we have every right to like it anyway.

I would re-save the photo from another editor such as IrfanView just to be certain. IrfanView alerts you if an extension is incorrect.

Getting rid of all that red helps some, as does reducing the highlights some.
Even so, would the screeners reconsider? Probably not. The ditch lights still overwhelm.

I wonder how far they had to go for more power.
Are any rotaries available in that region?

Everything appears to be leaning to the left except the silo in the extreme distance.

I honestly don't think they will accept it. Is it worth "spending" an appeal on?

I was about to post a re-edit of the BNSF- but the trees and grass still did not look good. I think the "should not be re-submitted" call is spot on. :-(
