Default Advice needed on rejects....


This certainly does not have a dark nose and it is not back lit. While the lighting is not the best, it certainly isn't that bad. FYI, this is the first new paint scheme on the Copper Basin for over 20 years. It is ex ICE 4204.


Not sure how this could be cropped differently other than cropping out everything except the train.

From RP's view, you cropped the shot as a roster shot, chopping off the trailing unit, much less the train. RP has a high standard for light on roster shots. Had you shot the scene I suspect you would not have had a problem.

No thoughts on the other shot.

The only thing that I can think is somehow get rid of some of that plain blah sky and still have the rest of it work.
