Default How Is This High Sun?

How is this high sun if the photo was taken at 9:29am and the sun was to the left side of me?

obviously they made a mistake on that one. sweet shot, but I'd crop a bit such that the Mercury isn't so much in my face.

Look at that shadow on the plow. That's probably where they see high sun.

My thought is that it's from the shadow of a tree. Do you have a frame from a few moments before or after where the plow is nicely lit?

I most likely do since I was hitting the shutter like no tomorrow. I'll look through my RAW files later.

In their mind, it's "Poor Lighting." They may have hit the wrong PL rejection though. Look at the car nearest us. There is a shadow on the front like there is a shadow on the front of the train. Not to mention the shadows in the streets are falling straight across the fame and not toward the train. So in the world of RP, it's a legit rejection, even if they hit the wrong button.

Now in the world of photography and railfanning, I think it's a really good shot.

I don't know, of course, but I suspect not. The sun looks to be exactly perpendicular to the train, and I think the shadow on the plow is caused by the curved blade of the plow itself.

Shadows on the hood and plow.

Not really high sun, but that is what high sun looks like.

Looking at this other shot from the same train (right?), I think you may on to something, my friend.

Well he probably doesn't need to be uploading 2 pictures of the same train in the same place.

They're two completely different shots. There's nothing wrong with that at all.

Same cars, same street, same train, same scenery. I don't see the point in putting another one on.

Both nice shots. Prefer the rejected one actually.

I don't know. They look pretty different to me, even if they are the same train.

Do you have one where the train is a bit further into the frame?

Even if it doesn't get on here, it is still a nice shot.

I concur, and the accepted one looks better to me.

Agreed. I find the composition of the accepted shot much more appealing, and it even appears that the person on the sidewalk is standing there viewing the train (just a tiny bit of human interest).

Yes, the accepted shot is much better than the rejection, but the two shots are still different.
