Default Backlit rejection

Actually a side lit. Shooting north to south so a challenge. Near the Summer Solstice so it's never gonna be better lit on this side. Any selective processing tips to put an acceptable amount of light on the side of the train?

Any time but the middle of the day. If the sun is on the other side then it has to be on this side some time. Was only there once just for hiking etc but seems this would be an AM photo???

I do have one from close to the Middle Falls in the AM. I tried this one first since it also showed the Upper Falls which are off-limits since construction started. Not many trains across the bridge in the right direction at the right time off day. I felt extremely lucky to catch three trains in two days.

The caption on this photo sums up the situation perfectly: it's early morning late spring or early summer and hope a train shows up.

It's hard to see the train, so i'm not surprised they rejected it, sucks when nice locations are in places that it's hard to get good light...

I've yet to see a composition from there that had great sunlight. Something in the shot is always dark and lacking. I'd try my luck on a cloudy day IMO.

This time of the year the sun angle is perfect at 8am for an EB train.

Now if Norfolk Southern could do its part all the elements will be in place.
