- Poor lighting (Was prepared for this to be a possible rejection)
- Composition/Balance (Not sure what they want with this)
unlevel - never level on buildings at the edge of a shot - level on things in the center - I find it useful to "level" on vertical lines, as horizontal lines need not be horizontal for perspective reasons but verticals pretty much need to be vertical

composition - waaaay too much boring foreground, more sky instead

light - well, a problem, RP doesn't like noses in shadow, but if you had a nice composition you would have a chance, i think, maybe not a strong one but a decent one

I guess I'm just wondering what you think the exact reason those were picked for, besides the poor lighting.
