Default Distracting Shadows...

Well, not arguing the rejection, a little later in the year would be better for this shot, but thought I'd get some opinions on an earlier frame.

The earlier frame.

The earlier frame with the engines way back there is better. I'd try that shot instead.

The train was going to the wrong way for you. I imagine the screeners think this is something that can be reshot with less ahdows. I still like it though, but you were train effed.

I gotta say that in the second frame, I really like the way the train's nose just pops right out of the shadows.

Thanks for the responses. I decided to try the shot again today. I got two trains at once and the shadows are not nearly as harsh.
