Poor Lighting:

No rejection reason:

1st one - Don't think it's going to happen, the sun was evidently not behind you, but looks like off to your right. So what you've basically got is yourself sort of standing in the train's shadow. Of the 3, it's got the best chance, and it's slim pickins.

Only thing I see that might help, loosen up the crop a little bit, bring the "fill light" up a notch. And add a pinch of shadow back in. Either way it's dicey.

2nd one - Non-starter, you're on the darkside of the train, noselight is decent, but unfortunately, there is very little light on the long side of the train.

3rd one - Non starter, aside from the fact that it's coupled at both ends, it's also under cloudy skies. The SD45-2B's aren't seen much anymore, but still enough to make it seem like a "common/standard power" thing.

Sorry man.

#1 is a very tight shot of an uninteresting nose that is just a tad backlit. More of a side shot may have helped here, bu the high sun would still be a problem.

#2 is slightly out of focus and sharpening prbably wo't help. There is also a shadow on the side of the train facing us.

#3 is coupled on both ends under a cloudy sky and the horzon is a little unlevel.
