I scan slides for a friend, and know it can be challenging. Sometimes they degrade, or wash out due to being an old Agfa, but most of them I can do something with. This one almost looks like a...

Railpictures messages to other members

So I just sent a message to a photographer on the site. I was asking about purchasing a print of one of his photos. After I hit send, it said that the moderators had to approve my message before...

Curious what shutter speed you used here. I have only had 4 or 5 opportunities to shoot a plow train, or a train hitting a high bank of snow. I seem to have issues with the flying snow creating blur,...

If you have Lightroom, you can selectively adjust the highlights with the brush, and then it would not affect the train. I pay 9.99 a month for Lightroom and you don't get all the features but it's...

I don't know what program that you use to edit. I have Lightroom. But no matter what program you use, it should have a highlights slider. I would turn down the highlights. That will make the bridge...

There will almost always be a rejection when the train is dead center in the photo. I know it can be frustrating when you feel you are shooting a whole scene, but the train is the focal point here....

#1. I agree that a tighter crop on the top and left would get this in. The train is right smack in the middle, which they don't like. You can take some sky out without losing the clouds.

#3 I...

The only thing I see is a lot of blue sky at the top. I had gotten some rejections for too much space there. I wonder if you cropped closer to the train if it would help.

Thanks for the input. I will stick with 1600 then. There's usually not much around the fringes to see, I agree.

As for the photo referenced in the in the OP, I really wanted to crop it but...

I may experiment a bit with sizes. 1200 just looked too small to me, but I can see where having to reduce a browser size is more trouble than it's worth.

I noticed that i couldn't see the whole picture either at 1600, which is why I thought I was doing something wrong. 80% seems to bring it all into view. I think it's what I've used for all of mine...

I'm a relatively new user here. The RP limits were 1600, and I looked around and saw that most of what I was looking at appeared to be that or near it, so that is the number I chose when exporting...

I'm not an expert by any means, but although the sun is shining, it appears a bit hazy and lacks the vibrance of bright sunlight. I would make a slight temp adjustment and maybe bump up the blacks...

Unfortunately it was the only usable shot. It was really a grab shot, but I don't know why I didn't just fire a bunch of shots off.

Not to make excuses, but I was allowed out of work for a 15 minute window to get this shot. I had a different spot scoped out, as there was no sun all day. Not even a little bit. As soon as he got...

After getting a hue rejection, I submitted this correction, and got hit for the shadows. While I doubt they will ever accept it, I would like to know if there is any suggestions to save the photo. ...

Makes you wonder how much of this one is real and not fabricated. Also, I'm not a fan of a link to his facebook page as a watermark, but that's just me.
