Hi Spacetrain,

Unfortunately, high-sun and backlit are just a bad combination. All of the good light is on the top of this train, not on any of the surfaces we can see in the image. I also have to agree with the other folks also that this particular train is not very photogenic, even in the best light. All in all, I would not pursue this one any further with RP.

I highly recommend shooting some front-lit images taken in early morning or afternoon light. You need bright sun....meaning a CLEAR day with blue sky. Post them here first before submitting. Only submit stuff that folks here think has a chance. Too many folks have lost upload privileges in the past. You don't want to join that club.
