I could pretty much see all of these getting on with some additional editing. The rejections seem to be fixable ones and the shots are good overall.

For the grain silo one, do you have an earlier...

I have to assume they're talking about the weeds/fence on the bridge itself. I've seen this rejection used for that before, but it varies screener to screener whether its an issue or not...

I could maybe see the cut off car being the problem, but it doesn't bother me too much. I would like to see the shot added, its decent documentation of the crane.

As much as I agreed with this version with a crop to hone in on the scene, it still got another shadows rejection....I just don't understand what they are seeing. Again, just give me a PAQ or a...

I mean it's got a pretty negative connotation in nearly every instance it's used these days...you don't really need to specify that.

But that's not the discussion, there's no rejection for "event over." We're talking about shadows that are (not) distracting by the rejection definition.

Honestly there could have been a train...

Guess we have a fundamental difference in the definition of clickbait then....and that's not a legitimate test to compare anything at all.

Exactly. I personally like the low light/long shadow photos that can be created with an aerial view, so long as they can be kept off the train itself.

As far as the comments about the "scene...

I like that idea on the crop, perhaps that will work.

Distracting Shadows (with no shadow on the train)

Can anyone help make sense of this? I've tried two different angles/times, neither of which have any shadows that are cast on to the locomotives. Yes there are shadows on the ballast that are close,...
