Default Worth an Appeal?

This one was given cloudy:

It should be pretty obvious that there is heavy snow falling, and it seems that generally photos with significant snowfall are given an exception when it come to cloudy shots. I do have several other photos from this sequence if anyone is interested, there may be a few more that would be better suited for RP.

Unfortunately, with falling snow, comes a lot less contrast. I get the feeling that's what the screeners see, along with the cloudiness that comes with the snow. You might try getting your blacks blacker, to see what happens.

In my opinion, there is nothing that stands out in the scene - it just looks like two locomotives trundling along through the snow without anything in the way of props or an unusual angle, and it looks a bit on the dark side to me. By contrast, a lot of your newer stuff looks to have something extra in the photo to make it stand out more than just a standard wedgie - thus I don't think this photo would ultimately add to the quality of your portfolio here on Railpictures. Again, that's just my opinion, take it for what it's worth...

I'll second the last reply. Nothing here that redeems the shot.

OK, thanks for the responses.

I was just digging through my shots of the train coming in and I found another (in my opinion) more interesting shot to submit. What do you think (as a note, the forum software heavily compressed it so it looks soft)?

Edit: it got on. Thanks again!
