Default Bad Angle?

Can you explain the Bad Angle rejection and give me any further comments, esp. regarding the possibility of fixing it?

Here is the reject...

It's a bit underexposed and perhaps the chain link fence at left is the issue per the rejection. I'd crop and brighten it some. Let the blossoms on that tree show themselves! It has good potential with a bit of technical tweaking.

Thanks, will do. Good to here that something has potential, from a screener.

I like it, despite the "different" angle. I see what you were trying to do and as J.E. stated, with some adjustments, I think you may have a winner.

It got rejected again for Backlit, or more appropriately sidelit. What do you think I should consider doing? Appealing (I'm slow to)? Are they talking about the bay window shadow, or the end of the caboose?

I would like to appeal, but I forgot to brighten it before my last submission. Would it be bad to submit the brightened version, with plans to appeal it if/when it is rejected for backlighting?

Worth an appeal? I'm not thinking so, but I want your opinions.

It looks like there is some grain and noise in the shot, esp. on the dark lower part of the caboose. I'd also suggest shooting it again when the light is better from the other side of the caboose. (Meaning take a few steps to the right.)
