Default Overexposed?

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=150197
This was rejected for being overexposed and common power on a cloudy day. I really can't see overexposed, though I'm welcome to suggestions on this one. And as for common power, so are these.

I tried appealing but it was rejected. Any advice would be welcome, even if its just "save it for the personal collection."
If I don't respond though, its because my family's leaving for vacation today, though if I can, I'll check back as soon as possible. Thanks in advance!

Some of them turned out nice, but yes I'd probably save these for the personal collection. My advice of course is to go out in better light. Not bad shots though considering the lighting.

Yep, those really are either too blurry, overexposed or too dark.

What resolution does your camera have?

Did you zoom in a lot on that first one?

Holy Crap! I finally figured out what the problem is. I just looked at my picture on my parent's computer. No wonder it got rejected. I'm surprised it wasn't rejected for more reasons. Anybody got advice for calibrating a monitor? Oh, and the second two aren't mine. I was providing them as examples of common power, cloudy day, at the location I was shooting at that were accepted.

Those pictures are two years old. RP.net has greatly increased their acceptance standards over the last year. I'm sure everyone has noticed it's a little harder to get mediocure pictures in versus their best work.

Here is a link that you can use to gage your monitor.

http://epaperpress.com/monitorcal/

If you have PS you can adjust your monitor using the adobe gamma loader.

Good luck.

Thanks. Once I get back, I'll do that. The only reason I'm able to type this is our hotel has a computer to use with internet access.
