Default I love this shot but...

I love me some 'Grande photos, and this one is a beauty, but do you know how easy it is to fix the foreground/subject exposure in Photoshop:

Not perfect, but less than 45 seconds of editing...

I really like your edit. It is too bad he didn't lighten the photo a bit, since it would have improved it so much.

I've noticed a lot of DRGW shots on Railpictures lately. Chris Nuthall posts some great shots of the railroad in big canyons and in other awesome landscapes. I hope he has a lot more to post, since I always enjoy seeing them.

Yes, the flood of DRGW is great yet horrible. Great because it's classic DRGW photos, horrible because I live here now and DRGW is no where to be seen (plus the Tennessee Pass lays silent)...

I thought the exact same thing when I saw that photo yesterday. It's amazing the little (easy) things that can make an excellent photo so much better. Kinda surprising they didnt reject it for being underexposed.

Maybe it did get rejected and in on appeal, Ween Email the guy with your Edit and say if you like what I did I will tell you what I did? He may not know his way around PS.

That would be an excellent use of that "screeners comments" thing that they almost never use.

Good idea, I just hope they give you some comments.
