I personally didn't think that the original version needed any brightening at all. I would have been proud to have that shot in my collection as-is. It appears as if you shot into that grove of trees to take the white sky out of the mix, so you could expose for the subject....and you did it well. It doesn't need to glow in the dark.

Historically, RP has not enforced the "cloudy/common" rule on steam engines. In fact, they don't always enforce it on diesels either. Perhaps they are training a new screener, who doesn't understand that you shouldn't use the words steam and "common" in the same sentence. Certainly, if the screener was familiar with this particular locomotive, he'd know there is absolutely nothing common about it.

My RP stuff is here.

Link to my Flickr Albums. Lots of Steam Railroad stuff there from all over the US.
