Thanks everyone for all your valuable feedback. The resubmitted photograph has now been accepted

I would try once more at 1200x800 with additional sharpening.
Bingo, this worked in my favour. Thank you.

I selectively sharpened the image which has brought in the necessary details Viz, the Loco Serial and the type. The Orange decals on a light blue background did make my work difficult. Thank you so much for your suggestion.

I only see this a few times. 99 pct of the images I click on size themselves correctly to my screen size. I don't know if this is a function of my computer or the site software not handling 1200 and 1600 sized photos the same.

My suggestion would be to reprocess to 1200 wide and see what happens???

Also, if for some reason in the processing you upsized the image(like from 1024 to 1600), you will have a problem.

Maybe someone else can look at these two, if you have larger screen the scrolling will not show up.

Your rejection:

Mine, now corrected.
Fortunately, I shoot in RAW at the highest resolution possible. In this case, it was downsizing. However the main issue that I face with my resizing is most of the images turn out very soft and when I try to bump up the sharpness too much to counteract the softness brings in lot of noise which ultimately leads to rejection. Any tips on downsizing without loss of appreciable quality will be appreciated .

Agree about the focal point. I did have a subsequent shot but I wasn't sure of it being accepted due to the rule of thirds rule.
