Question Rejected for PEQ, any suggestions?

Any suggestions on what might make this photo acceptable?

Standing about 100 foot closer to the station might help. I'm not sure this type of stuff gets much run here though.

Is it a train station, is it a school, is it a...? You know it is, and we do if we REALLY squint to read the Terminal Station at the top, but that still doesn't do much IMO. What does the inside look like? Any old station boards still hanging, etc. that you could work into a inside out photo to something?

Whatever it is, it's unlevel.

I think you can get a shot of this station in, but not this one.

1) The columns are casting shadows on the front of the building and because the building is always there, your shot has to be in perfect light.

2) You need to get all that clutter in front of you out of the frame. Either bring a ladder or use a wider angle lens that allows you to stand closer.

3) If you do both of those things and it gets hit with a PEQ again, consider (only with the fixes I suggest) appealing. There are quite a few facade shots of grand stations, so they do accept them, but they have to be absolutely perfect in every single way.

I think its fine shot, but a tuff shot to get on here. Why it's not moving and you have all the time in the world to set up it up and then you have to find one of the screener that wants it as it's not something they normally see on here. The other side with tracks would get on faster( more railroady )

Thanks for all of the suggestions--I am in Macon about once a year and will apply them if time allows.

It's a nice railway station and just needs something that shows that. No big name that says______ road.
