Default Distracting Shadows

These were before the crowds arrived below the Mt. Ogden overlook.

This photo fits the rejection criterion so I can't object on that basis but still thought it was a reasonable image with some nice elements and could be accepted, guess I was surprised again.?

I could do adjustment, maybe a little but not my preference.

Interesting that they chose to currently feature a very dark photo that's super as a weather photo, but with a train way in the dark distance and kind of hard to view without some magnification.

I would also suggest a small amount of shadow / highlight work. Just don't go full nutjob in photoshop.
