My thought: Where's the obstruction? The sign is framing the train. If you're going to reject the shot at least do it for the correct reason, which to me would be (if anything) bad cropping.
Agreed. That's strong wording from a screener, that the attempts, especially the second one, don't work. Photographers here are encouraged to think outside the box and be creative, and when their creativity is met with heavy-handed resistance, it leaves a bad taste in their mouth. I agree with the bad cropping suggestion, as I would tighten it up to get rid of the road at right, but there is no foreground obstruction, and it is a creative framing of a light engine shot.
