The only thing that I can see is that you cut a main part of the plume off.

I guess... but still, if that what they dinged me on. Sharp edge to edge on a pan, and one of these got on yesterday Iím color, almost exact same cutting the rear of the tender off. Oh well

Hi color! How many almost exact shots do you need on here?

Asking for a friend. :)

Your almost exact other one is better btw.

Could have been a mis-click rejection? STP or something?

True enough. Which is why I guess I donít care too much. Just kind of find it interesting... then again RP approval process is more dark magic than science...

The other guy shot... :-)

Sean, I would agree that the screener did not like the plume being cut off. In steam shots, the conventional approach is to fully show the plume. Do you have the full plume?

I personally would add that the image is too dark and that could have been part of an unstated screener rejection. Generally in a B&W image you want all tones, from full black to full white, to be present. Here, there is nothing above grey and the shadow detail is hard to see. Keep an eye on your histogram.

Pan shots benefit with both foreground and background being a blur. At this location, obviously we were working with what was there. So on another occasion, if you can get both, it really sells the concept.

Good work on showing the full locomotive and tender and catching it in total sharpness across the entire machine. That is the not easy part of the trick!

I don't take credit for these observations: I learned them at the knee of the Panmaster himself, Mitch Goldman. :-)

His previous was better than the rejection too. That's why I asked him how many he he needed on here.

Really it was only because I got the whole engine in, nose to tender... but I agree. The other is much much better and one is more than enough...

I wished I would have zoomed in closer for this one:

While it is quite nice as a large print hanging on a wall, the viewing online doesn't do it complete justice in regards to the motion and the sharpness of the locomotive.

And I completely suck with pans. Terrible at them.

That is quite lovely!
