I tried appealing and no dice, but whatever, I have a lot of other angles available from the canyon video. Maybe I'll try another submission later.

To be honest I'm not overly upset about the rejection. To some extent I feel like I'm getting one over whenever one of my shots is accepted because most of them are actually frame grabs from my 4k...

Thanks for the tips, I guess I'll wait a bit and try again. I'm sure the fact that there were over 40 photos in the queue when they reviewed mine didn't help.

Cloudy Shots - Common/Standard?

Just curious what isn't considered a common/standard scene in a cloudy shot. I visited Wind River Canyon in Wyoming when I was out west to chase the Big Boy and was lucky enough to catch a train in...

Just like to point out the fact that he was trespassing to get this, and standing in the shots of everyone who wasn't trespassing at that spot to do so.

Pretty sure that's him in the blue shirt on...

I've also run into repeated rejections ending in a PAQ enough times to consider not putting any more work into an image once it's been rejected for a couple of minor issues. On the other hand my most...

I'm seeing very little noise there. Sounds like they just don't like it. I think it's interesting.

Well if you really want to mess with it, here's the original full resolution version. Again, not raw, just a jpg.

So here's my dirty little secret... These aren't stills, they're captures from 4k video. That obviously makes it difficult to fix them in post and is the primary reason the dynamic range isn't great....

Too Dark?

I like to take shots at sunset, and every such shot I've tried to submit has been rejected for being "too dark".

Wallpapers?

I just got a new monitor and I was trying to find some really nice railroad photography to use as a wallpaper, but found myself coming up short. It seems that 1920x1080 resolution (or higher) high...
