Here's a screenshot of my linked post. It kind of appears as a thumbnail. It's larger than the RP thumbnails to the point you can almost see enough of the image to not need to click, but they are...

As a followup test, I linked one of my photos to three FB groups (about 2200 members total assuming no duplicates) after it had been on RP for 24 hours. It had 381 views before linking and 410 after...

I think it's dark enough on the right to hide the train being cut off. While this is better than the first frame, I don't think you have enough "silhouette" to make it work, but that's just my two...

Yup, I have had this rejection used for girder bridges as well. It is somewhat oddly phrased given the context though.

IMO the reason the accepted works and the rejected doesn't is the difference in the background behind the train. Simple and open in the accepted helps lend to a silhouette effect, lots more...

I'm surprised it would get a PAQ. Seems a simple backlit rejection would suffice. Good to try something different, but I don't think this is going to get on RP.

Can you stand further back at all and go more broadside? Maybe that would help with the tightness issue. I like the idea but if it were me I'd try again, hopefully improve the softness issues as well.

It's a neat idea, but the one light right above the loco cab (behind it) kind of ruins it for me, makes the lighting there very odd.

It's a nice and pretty cool shot, even for me who isn't really a fan of the RR's outside North America. Also, just an FYI to post the photo in the forum, you need to use [photoid=XXXXXX] so yours...

I'm a terrible judge of sharpness, just can't discern it. Not saying the image didn't have some issues I would adjust, but this grain rejection is baffling.

I agree. And this certainly didn't seem like it was over-covered either.

My guess is that the train itself is somewhat vertically centered. Perhaps some off the bottom or the top, or add some to the top and take off the bottom (if you have space) would help.

Again, I think that's a decent shot and the lighting certainly isn't harsh like true high sun. IMO that rejection should be based on the the light being harsh in the shot, not just because the...
