Looking for opinions on this rejection...

This (http://www.railpictures.net/images/d1/5/5/8/5558.1217031034.jpg) shot was rejected as "too dark". I think there are some shadows, lots of spilled diesel fuel, and the paint on the nose seems...

Yep, went down that road, too. I thought I opened the back of the camera, saw the film in it, and slammed it shut even faster than the speed of light but that wasn't the case! Just some Conrail...

My one and only trip to Harismus Cove yard in 1983, in the shadows of the twin towers, wound up on the pressure plate of my SRT-102. I started getting a sinking feeling when I "rewound" the K64 and...

Thanks, 4kv. My appeal on the second submission was accepted and that was only an appeal for a concrete explanation. Even though I made the grade in the final analysis, I'd still appreciate a...

Straight talk

I've been photographing trains since 1980 and I don't cry over rejections (and there have been more than a few) but I have to say this about the screening process: I'd appreciate straight talk.

Shadows on the nose? Yes. But it ain't backlit. When the whole train is in shadows, shot from the dark side, that's backlit.

Anyhow, nice shot with some "old" power on the head end.

Too dark?!?!? :lol: Yeah, right.

Anything with a prancing pony on the nose is fair game around here!...

Do a search on film scanners. Lots of them out there. I recommend a film scanner as opposed to a flatbed scanner with a TMA. Much better optics.

So I oversharpened it, maybe? I usually give a scan one touch of "sharpen edges" in PS. When the screeners say "too much compression" does that mean the file is too small?
