Default What does this mean?

Size (Dimensions): In most cases, our prefered image aspect ratio is anywhere between 4:3 and 16:9 (1024x683-768, or 1200x800-900 pixels). Exceptions are made for images shot on older square-format film, or where the unusual aspect ratio has been applied for artistic/creative reasons.

I'm only on my phone but it looks like its too wide. This could probably be a bad cropping rejection too.

I suspect the screener hit the wrong button. We could guess what reason he meant to reject it for. Perhaps the train is too far in the center left to right?

The exif data for all four rejections shows:

EXIF Sub IFD
Colour Space = sRGB (1)Image Width = 1200 pixelsImage Height = 800 pixels


Strange that you'd get that rejection reason since that was the new standard size introduced here last year.

However, there appears to be something funky going on with the last two rejections. Is it just me, or does the train (especially the nose of the loco) look a little squashed?

Yeah, just checked my monitor settings. (OK)
The images seem to be stretched horizontally.

Compressing the last one to look "correct", I got 1100x800. Maybe "preserve aspect ratio" or some such was not selected when resizing?
