Additional information: A few months ago I submitted an artistically designed transformer station in the Street "Berliner Straße". Someone thought the title should be changed. Now the title no longer states what it is about (transformer station) or where it is located (Berliner Straße). I wanted to appeal to this change. But since a rejection email is asked here, I had to request a title change again to see whether the reviewers choose the correct title again this time or whether it is rejected, so that I have a rejection email for this forum post. My screenshot above shows how the Wayspot was initially submitted and accepted. I ask that you choose this title again.

    I don't speak German and am only going by what Google Translate says, so I apologize if this is misguided. That said:

    The point of interest is the art on the transformer station, not the transformer station itself. Your original title doesn't make any mention of the art, while the new title describes the art itself. I would have to agree with those who voted for the new title.

    Unfortunately, the title does not adequately describe the picture. I'll show you what problems this title brings with it.

    The problem is that, as can be seen on Google Maps, the village is surrounded by a number of differently named lakes and it is absolutely not clear whether the named lake is really the one from the motif.

    In addition, the back of the motif also shows the local kingfisher, as can be seen on the right edge, and the motif is not limited to sailing. So I deliberately included the street name in the title.

    In addition, imagine the Wayspot has no image (yes, there are such cases) and you only see the title. What would you be looking for then?! Exactly. You do not know. Because there is no prefix word that defines what the wayspot is about. Basically, I always put a word in front to enable an assignment. And that's missing in this title. The Wayspot should at least have the title: Trafostation "(insert title here)".
