Bad contrast?

Old brown Swiss engines still paying their way on heavy goods traffic. I'm not sure about the rejection reason, whether they think it's too much or too little contrast. To me, the contrast looks...

Swiss express - appeal?

It's soft morning light, for which I think the contrast is right. Am open to suggestions though... thanks in advance.

Hi guys,

As I feel after two or three rejections it'll never get in, I've gone for a different one at the same location, but I think I prefer the one above :-(

Thanks for the comments anyway

Can't add any more on the right, unfortunately, I'm on full frame. I've upped the black though; any better? If there's no consensus, I'll give up with this one.

OK - I've given more space on the right (this is full frame now) and upped the colour slightly. Any better?

Rejected again - this time for composition

Worth an appeal? I really wouldn't agree that the composition is a problem.

Hi Hatchetman, thanks for that - this any better? Remember, Switzerland in spring; everything *is* saturated. (So saying, there's a thunderstorm here just now...)

Bad colour - can someone help?

Looks fine on my wee laptop, but was rejected for colour. Does look a bit grey on an old monitor I've got, but so does everything else. Can someone help suggest?

Thanks in advance

Worth appealing?

The second one especially I feel should be in. It's not squint (look at the pantograph - the river goes over a waterfall at an angle), and any more sharpening would result in staircasing on the...

Worth an appeal?

Can't see how this was rejected. Really at a loss for this one. Feel it's better than most of the pics I've submitted. Any thoughts?

Sharing here for 'rejection week'

Presume tilt-shift is outwith the scope of this site, as this one got a big fat rejection. Thought I'd share it here for the remainder of the week as it's one of my fav's. Also, I had a good response...

Can you try darkening the background behind the train? Problem is that the engines are neutral colours.

Is there any way you can get a wee bit higher up? It's a great curve, but with the optimum shot, with the train round the corner, you loose most of the consist. A small hill to stand on would let you...
