Default Elite?

My Elite membership had expired the other day and I have not renewed it, I had it just so I didn't have to put up with all the stupid pop-ups, But,,,The last five pics I uploaded since then have been rejected, for various reasons, like for example,

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=909534402
(I think there's pletty of nose light!)
Now, I can go into the data base in the last day and find a bunch of
"doesn't feature enough light" pics that were accepted, I'm not saying....but

Bill

Yes are you saying.. lol

Personally, your shot is an in your face 3/4 wedge with lacking nose light over nearly half of the nose and rightfully deserved to be rejected because of the simplicity involved in replicating that image to a higher standard. Not to mention a quick graze through your accepted photos, showed me no fewer than 20 shots featuring EJ&E engines in nearly the same pose...

I think you can live without this one making it...

Yeah... I think you can safely take off the tinfoil hat with regards to that theory. I know from personal experience that the Elite membership doesn't make a difference

If you're going to shoot a 3/4 wedge, it's gotta be lit properly. This shot isn't. The reason for rejection is perfectly valid.

Yea you will have to get past the bad part, there not saying you take bad shots, Just not what they want for a 3/4 wedge. If you look at all the J shots this weekend they don't need more unless you have something very good.

I don't know about that Bill, but from what I have seen here the sun needs to be directly behind you. The sun here is on the side of the train more or less. I've noticed that having the nose lit up but shadow on the side somewhat has been okay.

I have noticed that there has been more leniency towards older stuff. I'm assuming that is because it's more rare and cannot be redone.
