Question How do you handle a high sun rejection at 8:30AM?

Suggestions on this one?

Wake up earlier!

or...



































Wait until the sun is shining on the right side to illuminate the trucks.

So they gave you an incorrect rejection, but you should be able to read between the lines here.

The angle is wrong - the hit was high sun, but the issue was that the sun was not behind you (see the shadow at the truck, or caused by the railhead on the rail).

Sometimes, when you have permission, you can actually ask to have the locomotive moved into the right light.

I didn't think it was possible to get high sun at 5:30pm too, but it is.

Here's a thread discussing some things you can try.

The rejection reads "Poor Lighting (High Sun)" Emphasis on Poor Lighting. I've actually made the suggestion that they streamline the PL rejections because every summer, people get all up in arms about a HS rejection at 8:30 a.m. or 4:15 p.m. when they should be able to see the trucks are not lit right or the shadows are falling all wrong. So that's my suggestion which you asked for -- that the screeners streamline the PL reasons for the good of submitters everywhere. (And forum members.)

If trucks are in shadow, then it's poor lighting, AKA High sun reject, or like Joe said

Based on my personal experience, my appeals to rejection were +90% rejected again, but I have two occasions below that my appeals were got accepted, and the original rejections were both "high sun". So sometimes it worths to try appealing.

It could read something simple like, "Poor photo angle in relation to the sun."

True, but then you get someone who is standing trackside shooting a wedgie and wonders what other angle they could have used!

Maybe "Light angle not suitable for photo angle" or "Angle of light results in poor illumination of subject"?

It's a tough one...

Those two look like what I wrote, just worded differently.

I don't think it's very tough and I think most people would understand each of our "rejections."

It should get the dark wheels rejection, better known as the high sun rejection.

Early morning, head-on sun results in dark wheels. That doesn't equate to high sun.
