Was rejected for being undersharpened. I'm really confused, because I stare at this picture and look for the soft part of the photo. But I sharpen it up anyway and send it in...and it gets rejected again. What to do, what to do...

The numberboards are, but that can probably be traced back to the time exposure. You don't want to sharpen too much since the photo will pixelate then. I dunno what to tell you on this one, but you can take my comments with a grain of salt... :lol:

Wow....that's a really cool shot. Was the sun still out when you took this? It looks like sunlight on the nose....
Once, again, awesome shot, and I'd appeal if they reject it again.

The light is from another train passing by. It was about 30 min before sunrise.

I'll see what I can do to those numberboards and try again...

Night time shots aren't easy to get a good focus. On my 300D with various lens, it will sometimes focus automatically which is god with my eye sight. However, I think the image is just soft and as said above, sharpening anymore will pixilate.

And then my hunch is that if you can sharpen it enough with pixilation, they'll reject again for being too dark.

As they say, and have said to me, this might be one for your personal collection.

My two cents.
