Default Snow shot...?

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...28&key=8447342

It gets rejected for Poor Lighting but is this considered a 'snow shot' ? I thought it has to be cloudy for it to be snowing....

I think the challenge you face here is that while it is snowing, it's not snowing all that heavily, and as a result much of the snow gets lost against the clouds. Most of the successful shots I've seen on RP taken during a snowfall are taken from such an angle or include a backround of a sort that the result is that the falling snow really stands out.

Here's the rejection reason as given --

Quote:
- Poor lighting (Cloudy): Common angle cloudy day shots of common/standard power are generally not accepted.
Obviously if it is snowing, then it is cloudy. But you're missing the most important part of the rejection reason -- the common angle aspect. You went typical wedgie on both of the shots above. The first shot *might* stand a chance with better contrast and brightness, but it's still the same, common angle.

Seeing the FEC unit in the snow is pretty cool but the location with the mess of poles sucks.
