Default Really, what is the difference?

Not trying to downplay, George, but we both visit the same line and take similar photos. The line and clearings are tight in many locations and only has a few good photog locations. However, how come his are accepted and mine are always rejected. Any feedback would be appreciated.

George: http://www.railpictures.net/viewphot...=332278&nseq=0

Myself: http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=479371388

Secondly, I don't understand the poor lighting rejection.

It's a little yellow and you're showing to much of the un lit side of the power, Thats the bad light part, Nice I like them that way but it's not likely to get on. I add George is lucky his got on to its just front lit that some liked it. Add more Do you have a frame that shows the leader fully lit? that's a winer I would think.

You should use George's shot as a guideline of what yours SHOULD look like. Do you not see the difference?

a) I don't care for your processing, the way you brought up the shadows, a bit too much, and the color just looks bad.

b) George gets lucky in the trailing train. Your train has a long expanse, 2 engines and 2 boxcars, of wrong-side light. George shoots from a similar angle, but there is no 3rd engine to show a broadside of shadow, and his two freight cars are bulkhead flats that show no shadow given his sun angle. So his shot doesn't show a lot of unlit train.

That being said, I can only presume the screener clicked on cloudy/common for yours when they meant backlit (which often, in RP-speak, means improperly sidelit).

Your pictures needs to processing help. It's soft and needs some color help. I think as far as the differences between yours and George's was nailed by Januz.

One thing I did notice about George's is on the far left of the frame 3/4 of the way to the top, there appears to be a lens flare or something going on, no idea what that is, but it is distracting.

Looks like code line that has been cut and is still hanging on the pole, see pole next to engine.

I think both could look alot better, if they were captured a bit below track level. If that is at all possible at this location.

That's exactly what I did Jim. I would never have thought to try and post such a picture but when George was able to land one, I thought I might be able to do the same. I notice some color difference, but their are A LOT of similiarities. Don't you notice them? I agree with some others, both shots should not be on,

I do have a frame later and have submitted that. The problem with it is you see the lead but not the rest of the train. I will let you know how it works out.

I see more differences then similarities.

I wouldn't recommend trying to submit "meh" photos just because others may have gotten them in.

This is a type of shot that you may be able to get in after some work, but I figure if you continue to progress your skills and grow as a photographer, you'll yank this one back out later on.

I did the same thing starting out. I would throw everything I could on RP. Now 60-70 pulled photos later, I'm left wondering why I even uploaded them in the first place.

Sure, I see some similarities, but most of the differences come in the lighting and processing. The color just doesn't look right.
