Default Backlight

Any suggestions on how to change this shot around. It was 9am and its the most nose light this location will ever get, But I was trying to capture the train fading into the rock cut. Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.

You have to get lucky with a screener i guess. The location might just not work for this type of shot atleast for RP purposes.

The way you described the shot and what you were trying to do sounds better than opening it up and finding a tyipcal wedgie in less than perfect light. "Train fding into rock cut"? No. It's a wedgie with less than perfect nose light. The only thing you can do when light is like this is not shoot a wedgie.

Yeah, more of a side shot would do the trick... better light. Or just don't submit shots that don't meet RP requirements. I've not submitted anything since last autumn as most is either repeats or not the lighting RP is looking for... been doing alot of cloudy day photography lately (like I've had a choice) and enjoying not having to work around the schedule of the sun

Earlier sunrise and later sunset = north side shots that aren't available most of the year. Still, shooting in crap weather has some rewards... just not worth the time to upload for the inevitable rejection.
