Default Confused

Hi all,

After just getting back from a trip to Montreal, Quebec, I uploaded a few shots that I believe might've had some potential in getting on.

I submitted this former GO F59PH just leaving Montreal Ouest train station and it got rejected for "Underexposed" which I understand:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...91&key=1940388

Now, after fixing the exposure and re-submitting it, it gets "Bad cropping" and "Backlit".

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...81&key=4239160

What "confuses" me in this situation is that why the screener didn't just give it for the bad cropping and the backlit rejection in the first place instead of giving me the minor error (Underexposed) the photo depicted instead. I would guess it depends on the screener and wondering if I should just re-submit it later on since I have no idea at all.

Furthermore for the "Poor lighting, backlit" rejections I've seen shots from a few other people that look exactly like my rejection in terms of the lighting.

Help appreciated, thank you!


P.S.: on the plus side, I did end up getting this one on from later in the day!

Michael

I suppose the shot could have been rejected for Distracting Shadows. Just remember the full rejextio is -- "Poor lighting (Backlit): The image is backlit or doesn't feature enough light on the nose or visible sides of the subject." This might be like debating the definition of is, but the key word in the reject is actually or. The image is backlit ordoesn't feature enough light on the nose or visible sides of the subject. In this case, it's the plow and the trucks that are dark keeping it off RP.

And the bad cropping comes from the shot being so tight and the train being too in your face.

If it were me, I would have kept the whole signal and perhaps included some more left side to include some commuters.
