You may have given the screener too many reasons to say no.
I think this is a pretty good summary of the situation. Sometimes, others see softness that I don't see. Not this time. This pic is definitely soft. Combine that with cloudy/common and it makes the decision easier for the screener. Cloudy shots get in all the time here. It's just that to give yourself a fighting chance, you need to be shooting something unusual, or if it is common power, it needs to be something more than just a regular wedge. Good scenery really makes a difference.

My RP stuff is here.
