Default Rejected but I like it anyway.

This one got zinged for Poor Lighting (High Sun) but I like it anyway and thought I'd share it with you guy. The "Boston Dry Goods Store" sign was revealed last year after the adjoining building was torn down. It was almost perfectly preserved for nearly 100 years.

True, but I think I like the rejected one a bit better because there is less road and more of the buildings. The shadows cast by the higher sun give more definition to the locomotive and the surrounding buildings, but that's just my opinion.

Maybe when they finish tearing down the building on the left, there will be another 100-year old ad on the other side wall!

I think the whole high sun stuff is a bunch of crap, most of the time its not as bad as the screeners would have you think. My only fault with the photo is the cropping, it seems hard to tell what the main subject is the train or the building.

What's that supposed to mean? Are you implying the screeners are brainwashing us into thinking high sun is bad?

In some cases yes, where it just does not seem that high sun really effects the quality of the photo to the extent where it becomes bad. At other times I fully agree with high sun rejections. In the in photo in question, as I stated the above I find more of a problem with the cropping then high sun.

BTW: I personally think that perhaps a little description of the reason for the rejection would help, as it does seem a bit vague at times.
