Default Any chance?

I dunno why I'm bothering but for some reason I like this shot alot. Mostly because it is 867's first run to North Bessemer in years. If you look closely you can see santa clause up in the cab. They was rejected for bad motive. Think it has any chance of ever gettin accepted?

Those are some cool pictures. I'd say the only thing you can do is appeal.

Well, I think that you might want to make a "middle" shot between the two. The darker one may be too dark, but the santa is visible, which might score you points on an appeal if you choose to do so. The problem with the 2nd shot of it all lit up is that the santa is now gone, because of the headlight, and the photo has become slightly grainy. Maybe if you can find a mid point of the two, it would have a better chance.

It's highly doubtful. The first one, while kind of an interesting shot (and I can't quite put my finger on it), it just doesn't really fit the criteria here. There's some ghosting/flare on the left side and the photo is slightly grainy. While Santa Claus...er Holiday Figure might be visible, all I see is the head. So for all we know, he could just be wearing a Holiday Figure hat. It's a nice try, though.

The second photo is too blown out, and Holiday Figure is not visible.

The first shot is too dark while the second one is grainy and suffers from a bad lens flare. I would not appeal these.

Although I'm certainly not an expert at critiquing photos, I'd suggest you may want to try cropping the right side of the first photo a little tighter and maybe brighten it up a bit. I'd appeal the second one.

I think im screwed, I though black and whitign it might help but nope. Here's one with breakman in it. I'm a retard for not switching my ISO from 200 to 400.

Oh yeah and is there anything I can do reduce the lights flaring out like they did in that photo or does that always happen when you shutter lag it? The only way I could get the engine lit up was by shutter lagging. The darker one with no flare was just normal shutter speed. The pink glares aswell, any suggestions? I'm new to the whole night shot thing... hah
