Default What do you think?

Yeah, I know it wasn't the best lighting but I've definitely seen worse on here. I thought I could sneak it on because it was "rare."

Not worried about it though. The only thing that I'm a little mad about is that it was first rejected for unlevel. So I fixed it and it was rejected for being soft. So I fixed it and got this. You would think after all the times we've complained about it on here, that the screeners would learn that if they're gonna reject a pic, to put all of the reasons on one rejection that way we don't have to keep going back and back to fix it to just for them to say, "Oh yeah, we don't want it."

EDIT: Btw, I have this. After the train started heading back the sun came back out just a bit. Is it worth it?

It is leaning CCW for what it's worth. A little shadow/highlight tool may bring out some of the trucks a little. I've gotten a few cloudy shots on lately, so I can't say this shot is dead in the water.

Not a fan.

Reasons: grass covering the trucks and bottom of the carbody of the passenger cars, the railroad crossing pole spearing the gondola in half, the grain silo awkwardly cut off, the huge pole growing out of the first passenger car, the power lines in general, the pile of old crossties.

I am sure I can go on, but the whole thing has the look and feel of a poorly executed and conceived grab shot.

Don't take this personally, it's just my opinion, rooted in fact

I'm just saying. The 2nd one was a grab shot. I just thought the sun might've looked a tick better on it. The first one was by no means a grab shot and I knew it wasn't perfectly lit when I took it.
