Default High sun

I think I understand high sun problems now after looking at tons of pictures compared to the ones I have had rejected. I was getting a little frustrated but now I see my problem. This example I thought was great. It showed an old GP9 but it had lots of flaws that I need to address. Joining this site is going to make me a much better photographer in the future.

On a day like this, try to find a spot you can stand on the other side of the tracks.

With such a rare unit like this, you may get some leeway in a photograph.

Thats what I was hoping for, a little leeway because it was kind of rare. I have a few other pictures of the same loco just before a thunderstorm rolled in. I'll try those ones but I don't feel they are as good.

This photo, in particular, may be less desirable to upload due to a large amount of vegetation biting into the bottom of the locomotive.
