Default Greetings all

I'm a newly registered forum and railpictures.net user.

I've submitted a few photo's that have gotten rejected. I completely understand the idea that only the best get submitted. But what constitutes "poor image quality".

At first I submitted photo's as taken straight from my camera. Now I have figured out that some form of enhancing must be done for acceptance.

I realize this sounds as though I am being a poor sport about this, and admittedly I am a relatively new digital photographer, and am learning aspects of shooting. I'm just trying to figure out the process.

I had one photo submitted that was rejected because there was a weed alongside the track in front of a locomotive picture I had submitted, (attached) and the rejection was this:

- Backlit (Nose): The nose of the lead unit is too dark due to backlighting.
- Clutter (Foreground): The image contains unsightly clutter (fences, trees, weeds, etc.) which is either obstructing part of the train, or is large enough to detract from the overall image.

Thank you for your help.

Scott
