As for the second shot, it looks to me it got in with minimal cropping off the sides. Perhaps I'm missing something but I really don't see a heckuva lotta difference between it and the rejected version. Which makes me wonder why it was rejected in the first place. Like I said, perhaps I'm missing something. Oh, and I like the truck parking sign.
I can see your your reasoning as to why it was rejected as well. I'll play around with the photo a bit but if I don't find a pleasing crop I'll just redo the shot sometime.
