Default Any chance?

Got rejections as follows.
Any chance to fix or let it go?
Also I would like to know about how many times can I re-submit a photo after corrections? I do not want to frustrate the screeners with too many re-submissions. Thanks in advance for your views.
Actually I was expecting backlite reject.

The first one was rejected twice before for horizontal crop.

Actually I am getting a feel that it is getting rejected for I was standing near the tracks.
I shall not resubmit if that is the reason.

The rejection reason is at the top of the photo. They all look blurry with bad color to me.

It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

I'm guessing this shot was taken at the long end of a zoom lens, as you have a lot of blurring that is a result of poor reproduction from the lens. It isn't because of where you're stood, you could quite legitimately be stood at a foot crossing, the screener can't tell from that shot.

I think they are all blurry. Maybe heat distortion due to the distance from you to the train. Do you have any when the train got closer to your position? Something closer might work depending on the light. I doubt you were rejected for where you were standing.

All very legit responses. Honestly, this should probably have gotten the Poor Image Quality rejection (which is not fixable) right off the bat. I don't know how new you are to the site, but I kinda feel for the new people when they get "fixable" rejections and they try to fix them just to get another. If the photo is not site worthy, the screeners should just throw a "non-fixable" rejection and save their own time and save the newer contributors from having their privileges reduced.
Non-fixable rejection off of the top of my head:
blurry
PIQ
compression (usually)
backlit/poor lighting
...

As far as being because it looked like you were too close, we won't go there :-/
