Question Any hope of these?

I have a bunch of photos of a train that had been delivering 5 brand new GEVOs from Erie, PA. This is their first trip to Canada, and these are the first photos of these units. I'm wondering if any of these will fly.

Please note that these are probably not all level or have the right contrast etc, these are raw files that I grabbed.

If any of these might make it on the site, please let me know!

Thanks a ton!

These are all cloudy and underexposed. I'd say they are all no-gos.

Oh ok, well thanks anyways! Are there any that have good angles and would make it if it had been during better weather?

This one, but you need to get past that pole : http://www.flickr.com/photos/techypiano/6936250913

Try not to cut the train off.

That one caught my eye also. I am fine with the pole, it establishes the left side. I like it as it is (with proper light and exposure).

Yeah, I tried that one but they didn't seem to like it. Yes, I digitally remastered this a lot but I thought, like you, that this was the best one. I pulled a no-no and cheated on that picture... Compared to the original it's noticeable.

Your digital remastering resulted in really poor quality. I don't think the shot can be rescued, because presumably a cloud covered the sun and the light is weak, but in general the image quality is pretty poor. The sky is all pebbly and the bottom just looks poor.

Also, on top of what J said, the cloning is noticeable. I don't know if RP accepts cloning or not (I don't do it, but some people get away with it), but the cloning shouldn't be obvious regardless.

That is what I was worried about... I wanted to try it but I didn't want the wires in the shot.
