Default A couple more rejections

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=141197 - bad cropping
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=141195 - bad angle

So, are any of these worth trying to fix?

On this one try cropping the sky and maybe a bit off of the left.

Don't know what else you can do with this one.

thanks, I'll give that a try.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=141198

I also have to mention this one, because it was rejected for "Poor lighting (Cloudy): Common angle cloudy day shots of common/standard power
are generally not accepted" and "Obstructing Objects (Foreground Clutter)." Now while I can agree with the "foreground clutter" (but hey, it's a lift bridge, what do you expect), that was shot in full sun, and there wasn't a cloud in sight. I could interpret that as meaning the lighting is just bad because the angle of the sun was too high, but the screener didn't write that, he said it was "cloudy." I've had a few other shots rejected for the same exact reason when the photo was shot in full sun, and it's really starting to bug me.

Next time you go to that location, cut off the girder and see what happens.

Also, the photos all looked washed out to me. Maybe more saturation would help. Sorry, I couldn't access the website for some reason earlier.

I would crop the dead space on the left.

Yep, I would go to the fence post.

With the second (original) photo, the BNSF unit appears to be the focus. I am sure you meant for the passenger train to be the main emphasis. I don't see this one getting by.

I love the bridge. But in this picture, I guessed "foreground clutter" rejection before I read your comment. You would have a better chance for acceptance if the train was going from left to right and the lead unit is where 5006 is.

That's how I see it. Oh yeah, ditto:
