Question Composition/Balance.....any hope

This is the full frame. Is there anyway to make this an acceptable composition that would find favor with the Screener?

Yea, it is an in-your-face type of image. It was all I had time for since I barely got the car door closed.

The balance looks pretty decent to me, so I'm not really sure what to suggest. However, you have a big sensor dust spot in the sky that you might want to clone out before resubmitting.

Image is looking vertically centered.
I would remove some from bottom upto the bottom of the pole and slightly from right. Of course my personal opinion.

Yes.

And that cut off pole on the left is distracting.

Perhaps you should get rid of it.

The color is also flat and lacking contrast.

The first hing I noticed were the number boards. They look soft to me and as a I scrolled won, so does the ballast.

My resubmission was hit again

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...45&key=8393352

My EXIF data says 10:44. Since my camera was still on EST that means it is 0744 PST.

Should I appeal or does this have other problems?

It's not high sun, but I think what's hurting you is the glare off the windshield. I've experienced that in the past and if you shot it in RAW you might be able to recover that.

Censor vs. sensor, who will win? Sorry Jim, but since we're being particular about apostrophes in other threads, I felt the need!

Oh, and I second what others are saying about the glare and color.
