Default Should it have been a vertical?

I wanted to try to include the edge of the bottom-most coal hopper and I added more (arguably) dead space to the right to keep things balanced out.

I actually like it as-is, but were they feeling more of a vertical?

Thanks!

Not vertical, but less on the left, maybe a tad more on the right.

There's not much of compositional value left and right, so yes...I think it would have made a nice vertical scene:

Bad crop almost always equals centered trains - jeeze, Louise, why won't they create a specific rejection for this reason?

Though... when not centered, the next most often cited bad crop is "too tall". Jeeze Louise, why won't they create a SPECIFIC rejection for THIS reason.

I think you're crop is too "tall". Kind of square, too. Where did you come up with 1200 pix by 941 pixels? Odd crop.

If you have a photo with the diesels a bit higher in the frame, you could nicely crop this at 1024 X 683 (somewhat the norm) and loose the bottom. A bit too tight as is with the engines as they are if you still want the top of the building and sky which work nice.

Try my way. I'll bet they accept it.

This is clearly a vertical scene.

High sun? Really? Looking at the shadows thats obviously not the case. Should I appeal?

You should appeal. Had this been a ground level shot, that might have been an issue, but yours was a down-on shot, where the axis sun (as it's sometimes called) isn't an issue at all. The top of the train(s) is fully illuminated---which is the point.

It is technically, guessing this was taken around 11:45- 12 ish from the light angle? But Ron is right, from the head on angle its not as much of an issue, the side is where you get most of the negative effects on new units with the big radiators.
