Train too far..

Hi all,

I agree with the rejection. That the train is too far away doesn't bother me that much but the light is simply awful.

Is there a time of day where the light is more favourable?

Yep, that is the main problem... there is literally no way to get in touch with the screeners.

And of course, the fact that screening is completely arbitrary doesn't make it any easier to...

Hi John,

I've seen great pictures that were rejected with "awkward composition", "too close to the edge" and similar reasons that, quite frankly, make no...

Hi,

if a camera gives you zero control, you should definitely buy a decent camera a.s.a.p.
If not, you'll be annoyed in a few years time when looking at your pictures and realising that they...

It is not exactly the same picture... almost though..

Look at the shadow (of the catenary pole) on the first car.

+1

Awkward composition, poor lighting.. just pick your poison.

For me this is a perfect example of the arbitrary and random screening.

Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for you that you got your...

Hi,

regarding the pciture shown here, what about going back 50 - 60 yards and shooting with a zoom lens (200 - 300 mm)?
In that case you will have a picture where the focus lies on the front of...

Hi Joseph,

notice how the building on the left is tilting to the right (and vice versa on the other side). This is a result from not keeping the camera horizontally and should definitely be...

Hi Joseph,

just for the fun of it, take a piece of paper and draw your picture on it.
You don't need to draw the entire train, just outline where the engines are approximately in the frame.

Hello Joseph,

I have to side with troy here, his criticism may sound harsh but that is actually the best way to improve your photography.



Well, if that makes you happy... fair enough....

There are only four screeners and - as has been discussed extensively - screening is done arbitrarily and without...

RP - some thoughts on the screening process (and suggestions how to change it).

Hi all,

I'm relatively new here, only joined RP back in February.
