Default Bad angles?

Just wanted to get some input on a pair of bad angle rejects.

This photo is of a pair of IC SD70s going past a restored IC depot. (A very nice catch in my very biased opinion as an IC fan.) I was trying to incorporate the Pesotum sign on the side of the depot with the train, so it's between a head on and 3/4 angle shot. A standard wedge shot may have been better for just the train, but this angle provides a clearer view of the depot sign, which gives the shot character.

This photo is a standard wedge shot, just taken a bit below track level. I'm not too worried about getting this one in since its not very exciting power or scenery, but to me a different elevation perspective shouldn't necessarily equate to a bad angle.

I'm just curious as to why the angles are "bad", and what I could do to avoid the problem in the future. Thanks.

i think that the 2 pics were rejected for bad angel as you didnot show the whole of the trains in them.also i think that the first pic is soft.
for me the first i think in for the angel is choosing angel where i can by it get the whole of the train in the pic.

I agree, if you don't show more of the train, they think it a roster shot, and for that, you need to show more of the side of the loco and not much of the train at all.

That first shot looks a little blurry on this end as well, and there's not really a whole lot that can be done about that.

I think you answered you own question on that.
