Default Rejected snow shot?

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...key=1110971000

It's a snow shot. It was snowing in the shot. If it makes them happy, can making it bright help?

Except, it's not snowing it that shot.

You probably won't have much luck with this one. Common power in a common scene that can be redone over and over in better or more appealing conditions (nice sunlight or snow actually falling).

Makes sense. The only problem i've found is that I live in Delaware lol. The shot was taken is frozen rain so it is a bit hard to see what I did. Im going out later for some sunset snowshots. Any suggestions?

One thing that really helps a snow/sleet/rain shot stand out is capturing that falling precipitation in the headlight beam. Had the lights on those locos been on and showing falling precip, you may have had a winner. However, without seeing the scene you're shooting or the subject matter, it's kind of hard to make a suggestion that would help you produce a winning shot.

The shot is also dark and needs contrast. Railpictures also doesn't care where you live. There is no reject for "- Poor lighting (Cloudy): Common angle cloudy day shots of common/standard power are generally not accepted unless you live in Delaware."

So what? 11 out of my last 15 accepted shots have been cloudy day/common power. Just get out and shoot when you can and see what you come up with, there's always a bit of leeway when it comes to "rules". (but yeah, I guess having snow helps...)

Well then, you'd better make a note to the screeners when submitting a shot you captured on 3 or 4 of those winter days.
