Default A rejection on a cloudy day!

Hello guys!

One rejection on a cloudy day:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=649464568

What is common angle cloudy day shots of common/standard power are generally not accepted?

I know is cloudy, but i don't think have poor lighting. This time no comment for the nose!

I would like your views!

Werner,

You're shot is fine... it's just doesn't fit into the submission guidelines. They don't want shots of standard power unless it is well lit (a nice low sun).

I've submitted a couple of these myself... razor sharp pictures on cloudy days... they just don't get in.

Charlees,

I have another pic of the same day, cloudy day, but with good light (my point of view), not submitted yet.

Do you think is worth it to make the submission, and maybe get accepted?

Who knows?

I've been encouraged by another RP member to be continued to uploading...

Obviously we can't tell if it is worth submitting if we cannot see it!

By all means continue to submit, and in doing so develop an eye for what makes a shot RP-worthy so you can in the future tell what is worthy of submission. We've all gone through that. And of course, develop an eye for what makes a shot not RP-worthy but is nevertheless a fine shot to be proud of and keep in the personal collection.

Definetely keep uploading, Werner.

But if it was a cloudy day shot, you may want to wait until you have some stuff on a blue sky day. Cloudy day material will get rejected unless it has some other facet to it that is surprising or rare.

Try to give us train shots on these type of days instead of roster shots. See also Clint Renegar's recent Yadkin Valley shots for great examples --

Since we are talking about cloudy day shots would something like this be a cloudy day roster shot.

Yessiree Bob! (because the system wouldn't let me just write "yup")
