Default Rejected for poor lighting

- Poor lighting (Cloudy): Common angle cloudy day shots of common/standard power are generally not accepted.

Yet in my comments I stated this was taken well after sunset. It was actually a real clear day, but the color was all but gone out of the sky. The photo actually looks lighter than it did being there. Oh well!

It's a good try but I think it's a little too dark. I wouldn't say it is common power/angle cloudy day shot.

Did you use a flash? If so, it kinda gives a cool effect to the outlining of the BNSF logo.

Yeah I thought the unique power would get it in. Not a bad shot by any means considering I was set at 400asa. Yes I did use a flash for it. Look at this for a few others from that night with a flash.

FWIW, the image quality is poor. I can see the lo-res 'blocking' in many spots.

Cardinal rule: Save your photo at the highest possible quality.

BNSF new logo ES44DCs aren't accepted in poor lighting conditions, but UP ES44ACs can get in backlit and cloudy....That makes perfect sense.

I think it's a cool shot, but the lighting isn't all too great.

Yes it does.

BNSF ES44DC Photos in the RP database: 136

UP ES44AC photos in the RP database: 54, and only a handful of them are in "poor lighting conditions."
