Under the "members" section, you have the ability to change several items (Remarks is one of them) on previously accepted photos. The changes don't seem to be subject to screener approval. What...

The top 2 photos of yesterday are:

1. Photo of foreign objects placed on the rails.
2. Photo of a derailment.

Maybe the screener was trying to encourage you to be more selective. That is: to submit the best SINGLE photo of a group of parked units, instead of several shots which, although they're different,...

John West: Where's the Train ?

I noticed that John West has two photos of the same train on the same bridge on the main page right now. Although both are nice shots, I find myself wanting to see a shot with the train much closer....

It looks like you should have changed the white balance setting on your camera before taking this. Most cameras have white balance settings that compensate for the horrible color cast by mercury...

I've been to this location a few times. This spot is best photographed around mid-day with winter lighting. It's now April and the sun angle is very different. Time to pack this spot away until...

Two other suggestions:
Work on the color. The yellow is rather strong.
Also, re-size the image to that the height is at least 600. The screeners are ususally pick about this.

The first thing I see is that the color is awful. There's a really strong yellow tint to the photo. It almost looks like you slid the white balance bar all the way to the right when doing the RAW...

I'm not an expert with Photoshop, but a few minutes of playing around produced a result that looks a bit better (in my opinion).

Assuming that the time & date on your 20D are correct, the EXIF said 14:37. Probably still a bit too early for best results in the high Southern California sun.

Yep - high sun alright !
Look at the rails. The sides are almost completely dark. The only way for that to happen is if the sun is directly overhead.

You seem to like hanging around the yard in North Bessemer and taking tight wedge shots that show 3 BLE tunnel motors and 2 or 3 cars. Maybe the screeners are trying to tell you "enough". I'll bet...

High Sun: YES

Bad Cropping. Yes - you appear to have cropped out most of the locomotive. Also, there's a lot of "noise" around the lower portion of the image. Probably from trying to over-lighten a black...
