Default Backlit? Well, Yeah, but Worth Another Try?

I almost didn't try this one after another shot of the scene got the Backlit rejection, but I thought Id give it a shot to see if the subject matter prevailed --

So my question, should I let it go? Rework it in B&W? Or what

Hi Joe,
if you can, go back to the spot at another time of the day and get sun on your back. Otherwise I think you have no way of passing through ... too bad, as it is a interesting angle you got in.

Or go back at night with a tripod and a spotlight . . .

If you look on here you will find that LOTS of derailment shots have very bad lighting flaws. I am wondering why they picked on yours. I would reprocess it to remove the ORANGE hue and resubmit. They are being inconsistent again...

I would second the orange hue reduction if at all possible.

That one might be a good candidate for HDR with that orange color and the green in the background

I thought that it looked orange too. What will we name this color after Joe Blue?

I'm letting it go. Truth is, you can't fix "backlit."

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=936254&key=0

I should have got up there sooner. Besides, Patrick Treadaway got up there and I expect to see more of his shots showing up on RP. FWIW, this was the other reject I tried to get on --

Couldn't agree more...

On a side note, however... why would you want it on RP anyway?

We can call it "O.J."

Orange Joe

Except I still stand by my Joe Blue shot. The orange was unfortunate.

And why would I want it on there? I shoot TV news. Why would anyone want to do that? I think of it as the same way. Photography sometimes shows the unfortunate side of life.

If you had a wider shot I think it would get in Joe.
