Default Do I have to wait another 37 years to get rejected again?

I knew I should have packed some light deflectors just in case!

Oh jeeze... not THAT shot again.
; )

I'd appeal - you might note the, uh, obvious rarity of the scene and perhaps brighten it up a bit.

I am seeing it this way... APPEAL IT! The admins should realize how rare this is and accept it. I like the shot...

Mitch, looks like we said it at the same time, great minds think alike!



That might be an insult to you though...

Like Mitch said, lighten it up and a bit and resubmit. Excellent rare shot and well worth being in the database with a little tweaking.

That is an awesome shot... the backlighting is horrible though. I know there isn't anything you could have done to make this better given the angle... but the pure rareness in the photo is amazing, but I'm not quite sure that it outweighs the backlighting.

Good luck on appeal... more people would like to see this shot.

It was amazing... and the fact that I was standing next to you and completely blew it will haunt me for the rest of my life.

I love how the shot shows both trains. Appeal it.
