Default Bad contrast; which way please

First it was hit with horizon unlevel.

Rotated 0.5 CCW, then:

"Reason(s) for Rejection:
- Bad Contrast: The image suffers from either too much or too little contrast."

I'm guessing it's too much based on yesterday's accepted shot...

...but I've been wrong before. What do you think?

Why do you want to upload a near duplicate of your accepted shot?

I think it is too much, but I don't see that one getting in.

Because it illustrates how the engine looks when it is together, as opposed to in pieces? I dunno, seemed like a good idea at the time...

Wayne, I recall being up there was a brat in the late 1980's for a train show. The equipment looked pretty rough then... nice to see the progress on the restoration.

Sorry, I didn't notice the change, despite it being significant.

You and Judy would get along just fine, J! A couple of months ago I picked up a train (seriously, one of those fairground jobs 15" gauge, the engine is about 5 or 6 feet long and 4 feet high, and with the 2 gondolas about 30 feet long altogether) and dropped it off at the top of my driveway. I had told her about it but when she got home from work and I asked her what she thought of it, she said "Oh, I didn't notice. Where is it?" to which I replied "right beside your car, Dear"! But then maybe that's an indication of just how much machinery I have sitting around the place, the yard hadn't changed just one more piece of "Wayne stuff" in it!

Anyway, to make a long story even longer, I tried adding some contrast just for the hell of it and it was rejected for bad cropping.

Not wasting any more time on it. And Mike, you must have been here just after they repatriated the equipment from it's tenure in Pinafore Park, St. Thomas. I heard it was in pretty rough shape at the time.

To me the "invisible gorilla" study is just amazing.

See the attached,

and the book (which I have not read) (see also the blog at this site)

I've never seen that before and I wish I had watched the video before reading anything on that page. I easily saw the gorilla because I was somewhat expecting it. Darn it!

Yeah, I didn't see a good way to show the video without explaining what it was and why it related to this thread.
