scratching my head
 
Ok, How can this be a Common angle cloudy day angle, when it is on UP Property? I did have permission to shoot here since we signed wavers for the CNWHS trip.This was once in a lifetime shooting. I have nothing agaist it being rejected but Im just scraching my head on the once in a life time deal.Should I resubmit. I know RP doesnt like cloudy day photos.

Nothing is uncommon about the angle of the shot. Sure, it might be rare to get that angle as it's on UP property, but it still comes down to being a 3/4 wedge. And it's cloudy, which is the main reason for the rejection.

You could try an appeal, and if that doesn't work, be grateful you at least have the shot and got to have that experience...

Ill keep it for my self. I would have liked it to be on here, but Im not the one reviewing photos here. What can you do with 300 of your fellow CNW fans bunched trying to get the same view!

Yeah, it sucks when certain "special" shots don't make it onto RP for whatever reason! I totally agree with Chris (Ween) about relishing the moment for yourself and the experience! Personally, I like to be the "behind the scenes" guy. I have thousands of pics that would not be accepted here however, when my company or someone else needs them, guess what? Thats when I cash in on the rare shots.

Just curious...are you suggesting that if a train is photographed on U.P. property that it can't be rejected for common angle/cloudy day? Does this hold true for BNSF, CSX, NS, CP and CN property as well?

By the way, the shot is also unlevel.

Were it my shot, I would start again on the RAW image... pulling down the highlights to get some color in the sky (it looks like you did have some).

I would then juice the saturation on the train itelf a touch (not too much that it looks unnatural).

Then I would submit that version.

Cool shot either way.

No I wasnt.I know that they have a right to reject photos. I was just meaning since it was special that it might have a chance.

Take away the special circumstance, isn't it a common angle/cloudy shot? Remember this site is about good photography first, not just pictures of trains.

Also the top of the train matches with the trees and they both make a horizon in the middle of the shot. For good composition, the horizon should be above or below that.
