Default Cloudy?

I think maybe the screener may have clicked the wrong box or maybe they did not like the lighting situation in general. No big deal but what do you all think?

Any thoughts?

Maybe just a tad more contrast and some brightening.

I'm with Chris on this. It's a tad dark and flat.

Reason(s) for Rejection:
- Poor lighting (Cloudy): Common angle cloudy day shots of common/standard power are generally not accepted. [Ed.-Emphasis added.]

All three of those shots of the 104, taken in the last three months, from basically the same angle, have better lighting on the nose than the above rejected shot.

It's hard not to agree with Chris B. in most cases, impossible not to agree with him here.

i've always deferred to the submission guidelines -

"Please avoid similar angles of the same train from the same location. Generally one shot is enough of a train at a particular location. If you must photograph it again, please attempt to find another location which offers a different view of the train"

just sayin'
