Chris, thanks for your reply;

I know that you have this subject remaining several times. But very precisely, following exchanges with these contributors I'm sure that some photos that would have been rejected in "normal times" are now seen "two times" and more accepted (especially backlit).
Just an example; which image (voluntarily resized and anonymized) have been rejected for backlit?
There is no differences between both pictures regarding the sunlight phase ?
But one of them was still rejected for backlit...

I'm not saying that these are "preferential rights" (I Don't know the right term in English ) but there is simply more attention in the screening queue for them now.

Same remarks with "cloudy" reason... I'm not considering that a cloudy picture is a systematic poor picture, photographers don't choice weather when shooting mostly when a special train is scheduled long time before!

I really think that RP rules must evolve regarding backlit and cloudy shots but it's another subject!

Maybe something was wrong on the process or on the server this day; Possible too that the displayed counters in member section are not real time !
But I was hallucinated during these 3 seconds, I did not have the time (*) to press more than 4 times on the refresh key (F5) while the counter of queued pictures was displayed from 8 to 0 photos... so I was crazy to see that especially because I had 2 pictures in the queue which were also rejected for "to dark" reason (really?) while it's specified "night shots"

*I have chance to have a very fast Internet connection (It's my job ) and I reach from France the Dallas RP server with less as 45 ms!
