Appeal rejected for "edited image" - while it wasn't?

I recently got this result from a appeal I sent in, quite long ago. It is way on out in the countryside, and I probably never will come back there. However, the Niantic team seem to have "confirmed that the picture was edited". I know for a fact that it wasn't, since I took the picture on my phone and sent it straight into submission, way back in 2020.

I just wonder, how in God's name has Niantic come to the conclusion that it was edited??

Things might have changed there since 2020, and it might not look the same now as then, but that is not the same as accusing me of editing pictures.

    At the time, I also sent in some more nominations on the way to that spot, with the same phone, see below.

    That view point is the target of the trail up there. As there wasn't anything man-made up there besides the guest book box, I made that that the anchor of the spot. IMHO, it was wrongly rejected from the start. But that they are accusing me of cheating really p***** me off!
