Default Angle (Extreme) Rejection

The below photo got this rejection. Perhaps it can be considered awkward, but I don't think it was "taken from too far below or above the subject."

Can an admin please clarify this rejection as it applies to this photo or the rejection in general?

Angle (Extreme): The angle from which the image was composed is awkward and/or extreme, usually meaning that the photo was taken from too far below or above the subject.

The rejection likely intended for this photo was the Bad Angle (Going away) reason.

Thanks,
Chase

Just gotta give the screeners a bit of time to get used to pushing the new buttons.

Hmmmm...... the train was coming towards me, as I pointed out in a note to the screener.

But it was still facing away from you, which I believe is the point here.

The exposure and/or color needs some work too

Not a fan of the angle myself

The point is that Carl's point is much stronger than your point.

But only you know that. The picture clearly depicts to the viewer a train going away. That's the difference.
