Joe,

Take a nap.. Look at the trucks, the trees, even the sides of the cars to the right. The scene as a whole is just underexposed. Brighten it up, resubmit, and that'll solve the issue. Is it necessary to bring up a thread every time you get a rejection that thus far is spot on?

Its underexposed and looks like you were on the edge of being cloudf*cked. Brighten it up and you should be good though.

When I first looked at it, my first thought was you got cloudf4c*ed, but then I saw the shadows...

It's fixable, just dont alter the sky or it's gonna look like candyland.

That bridge railing thing isnt helping as far as composition goes. Do you have a frame with it farther away that you can re-crop that bridge completely out?

Chase;

Calm down. I don't bring every rejection to the forum and obviously I don't bring any here that I think are spot on.

Go calibrate your moniter.
Is anyone else totally turned off by shots that include the bridge but only lead you out of the photo?

I'm going to take Joe's side here - sort of - and say I don't think it's underexposed. I do think, however, there's something funky going on with the post-processing - too much shadow/highlight manipulation maybe? The color of the sky doesn't give me an underexposed feeling, but things are definitely too dark on the trucks and on the sides of the cars over there on the right side of the picture. Try again, Joe.

I'll raise my hand for that one. I don't see what the bridge adds artistically or operationally. Joe is a fine photographer and I usually take a look at all of his work. But not a fan of the composition or the lighting on this one. Sorry Joe.

The only problem I have with that photo is I wish the loco were just a bit further back. It's just about to go under the bridge and I'm anxious.

Hear, hear! If you're going to include a bridge, make sure it curves into the scene.

Joe, why not upload this one? I think it's a lot more interesting.

The use of a brake stick is so that employees don't have to climb up on cars to apply and release the handbrake, they can all do it safely on the ground without getting hurt.

Well, I do like it. I think it needs a reprocess. The colors are jacked up just a bit. The Alco helps make that shot as well as the train curving through the siding. Interestingly, three different 18 wheelers were going over the bridge behind me when I snapped that shot. I had to do multiple takes because the bridge was bouncing everywhere.

I liked the shot with the bridge trailing off, but I have seen others do it better than that one. I believe Doyle Massey has a few and most of the time there is an interestling element on the bridge that, frankly, mine lacks. On the other hand, I like that shot too because of the brakestick sign.
