Default Tried my first glint shot......

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...22&key=1859898

Got Unlevel when I submitted it once last night. Today it gets nailed with 3 different rejections, including backlit. I can see the sharppening and unlevel still, but arent glint shots backlit, as you're facing the sun?

It's an interesting shot with some very nice color, but it's not a glint shot.

I tried....lol. Any tips for taking a glint shot? This was about 7:30pm, so the sun was still a bit high.

You've just answered your own question, my friend!

Glint shots happen when the sun is just about to set/has just rose and the light is pink/orange.

I like it except the sky is way too blown out, hard to fix even in RAW.
