I really very happy because when I taken shot with sunny without clouds day so I lucky catch it but I shock that there RP been rejected whole of my photos with most "backits" and lighting something like that. Because, this photos was too brights or blocked from trees (branches) from right there?

You always want the sun at your back, and none of these are anywhere close to being up to RP standards. Try again, and remember..

Because the Delmarva Branch runs almost directly north-south, in the winter, the best photos will be of a southbound train. The sun will never swing around to light the nose of a northbound at any point in the day.

This shot shows it best:

See how the shadows are pointing towards you? That's not good. The shadows need to be pointing at the (front of the) train, not at you...

As I tell everyone else, just look at what gets accepted and then try to create that scene. A simple well-lit wedge is easy to accomplish.

And if you submit 'em like that, you'll get upload restrictions fast.

I was thinking the same thing.

Yeah just next time another time so hope when I catch that train when I take shot and the sun behind me. I am need to know better by myself :smile:


Wow, you are brilliant! But, one thing I stuck because I was tried catch soutbound like 12G, 67T and (possible as 852 train) because of winter day while they run at early morning too darkness but I think so that if RP accept that when I take 12G or whatever when while at darkness (early morning). Just wait till daylight in summer look more better than winter day. That somehow I stuck with winter and I taken shot at early noon.


That trees behind me and right side plus the sun at on right side and, I am into forests stay away from sun but sorry I was wrong as way.


Okay, I will be try to work on it and, create that scene like paintshop or photostop that which most I use photoscape, photofiltre and, (sometime with gimp) But, I want take to another time as expect.

crazytiger and John Fladung,

Yeah, may I like this, http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=428375432 so I need to fix that photo or just re-again photos at next another time.
