Default When it rains, it pours...

So is this the appropriate rejection? I don't typically equate rain as "noise" as a result of editing... Thoughts? Should I pursue further?

Thanks in advanced, guys...

Yeah, that's weird. Doesn't look noisy to me.

Do you have a frame like half a second later? That would put the lead engine in a more desirable place composition-wise.

No, I took one shot, I don't have a weather sealed camera and I took one shot so that it would not get too wet...

I love hump bridges. Unfortunately, your screener may be one of those guys who has never shot in the rain and doesn't understand it. You can avoid getting a camera wet by simply shooting it from inside a Subway (sandwich) bag. Use a rubber band to fasten the open end of the bag to the lens hood. Problem solved.

I prefer to use a 2-gallon Ziplock bag. Better quality.

I am also a fan of the giant ziplock bags.

Kent, you seem to be big on RP screeners not understanding things. I suppose, coming from ObsCar, that is an unsurprising mindset for you to have.

It could just as easily be a simple error or misclick. Screeners are well known for rushing through shots.

Kyle, I don't see the noise either, although I don't have the best eye for that. Since no one else sees it, appeal with explanation.

Or you could do a bit of noise reduction (which should not affect the rain at all) and resubmit, saying you fixed it. I would not be surprised if it were then accepted.

J, I did a little bit of noise reduction, it did not affect the rain, but then I received the dreaded "Bad Cropping" rejection. Any suggestions on fixing the crop?

Glad to see this thread come back to life, I was away from the forum for a couple days...

Mostly off the left, I think. Attached is one of many possibilities. The key issue is avoiding the dreaded-by-RP centered train. With the bridge, I think that issue is lessened.

It's true a wrong button could have been clicked. I know I'd be going crazy if I had to flip through a couple of hundred shots every day--gotta give them that. All in all I do think they're do a pretty good job. As for "coming from ObsCar," it's not my "main" forum. I mostly hang out on a large format camera forum and a Nikon forum. (And lately a couple of wedding photography forums--I have a LOT to learn yet!)

Glad to see it in, it is very nicely done! Lots of rain to be seen!
