Default rejected..again...

Okay, i'm still new to adding photos to the database, they all get rejected, where do I find out why? Here are my rejected pics.
Is this one rejected because of bad lighting on the trucks?
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=135335

and this one i have no idea why
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=135332

and this one...too soft?
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=135331

any help would be nice

1.) The photo is shadowed. If there would have been full sun on the engine, it may have been accepted.

2.) The engines are lost in the photo. If they were a little more centered or well known in the image then it might have been accepted.

3.) It seems that digital zoom was used on this photo but I might be wrong. The photo is blurry. Soft is meant by that the photo isn't sharp but "hazy." Photos are always soft from my camera so I have to sharpen them.

Hopefully this helps!

1.) Common shot, plus you misspelled Sacramento.

3.) Is unnaturally fuzzy.

You have to walk down the secret trail to the loop if you want a good shot. Shotting from the side of Woodford-Tehachapi Road is too out of focus.

1) there is some shadows in avery sensive places in the loco like the wheels and there is also shadows in the coupler area.
2) its anice pic and i canot see any thing wrong in it but that you should makes the whole circle caused by the train appeare in the center of the pic.
3) i think also that you used the digital zoom in this pic and as aresult the pic lost some of its quality like the detailing of the wheels.
try again and again and we are together
also i caught about 200 pix no pic of them was uploaded

You should be receiving and email from screeners*at*railpictures.net listing the rejection reasons after you have sent in photos. (Or it will say it is accepted )

The first photo was probably rejected for bad lighting or distracting shadows.

The second photo is a great idea, but probably get dinged for poor cropping. Also the whole train in the photo would greatly enhance the photo.

The third photo is soft, and the rails in the foreground are distracting, AKA foreground clutter.

Yes. For a roster shot, the light has to be practically perfect, with no shadows on the locomotive. I know that you pretty much have to take what you can get, but had this shot been captured maybe an hour earlier (or later depending on the time of day), it probably would've been accepted.

I'll agree that this one probably was rejected for cropping since the photo would probably look better with the train on the left side. It's not a bad photo by any means, and it might be a good idea to try and appeal it and see how that goes.

The digital zoom killed this shot. While it's useful for getting in closer than the optical zoom, the image quality is severely sacrificed.

I really like this shot alot http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=135332Gives a diffrent prespective of the loop. I would have waited for the locomotives to be a little farther right before taking the pic. None the less a good shot.

And also try to keep obstructing objects like trees out of the way, if possible.

It might be a good idea to appeal it and use that photo since they're pretty much the same.

You may wish to check on who submitted that photo before you appeal

ok, so I cropped the photo, but the reason for rejection is because it has to be closer to a size they want....how do I do that without cropping to much?

What size are you saving the photo at? Are you cropping and then resizing, or resizing and then cropping?
