Unhappy Another 7 Day Gallery

Apparently it isn't foggy enough. Yes, it isn't tack sharp, but it represents how the eye saw it, and what I can do without jagged edges. I thought it was interesting, showcasing the TALGO tilt, and the NPCU. Rejection is accurate, but I like it. Comments are welcome, whether positive or negative.

The rejection is "cloudy day" not "soft" nor "blurry" so I'm not sure what the issue is?

You are right - I do not see enough (if any) fog to make this a cool fog shot. Just looks like the Talgo on a dreary overcast day.

There is no issue. I just thought that others might like it, and I might as well share it. It does have technical issues, which was what I was alluding to.

Indeed. We get a lot of those here in the winter. There was quite a bit of fog, most of which cleared about fifteen minutes before the train arrived. Some is still evident on the hill, and in front of the lights. The point of posting this was to let others view a shot that I like, in case others feel the same way.

It's very unlevel, too.

Consensus is that it isn't as interesting as I thought it was. And that's okay.
Well, it looks like this is going straight to the the personal collection hard drive.

It appears to be lacking image quality overall. And as already stated, unlevel and soft. Cropping could use some work also.

Well, okay. So much for my attempts at creative photography. I'm reverting back to lurk mode unless called.

That's silly. Instead, keep trying, and learn from the setbacks.

I wish more people would give up this easily when being critiqued. More room for the rest of us.
