Default No Nose Light for Roster Shot

Well, I guess Drew and I got the same screener that didn't like accepting roster shots with dark noses... Appealed, but, rejected and no response. Thoughts?

With the second one, that grab iron on the front clearly is casting a shadow, meaning it's picking up SOME light.

Thanks!

Ya, it seems that way, i submitted another one, 1st rejection for leveling, then leveling again, finally fixed it, then i got the "poor lighting" rejection yet again, either they are giving me the runaround or they just changed screeners, one side at an angle isn't lit, but i appealed as well

I still commend you for posting that to our group... I have something to do tomorrow...

I like the shot!

They have over 200 on today, save it for latter in the week for a better chance to get on

They're both poorly lit, unfortunately. Nothing you can do about that.

The first to in the first post are not lit great, but are very poorly cropped. The butthead is way too tight and the angle from which it's shot doesn't lend well either.

Now Drew's shot, I might try again later on it. Either tweak it, b&w it or come back later. I like it.

You had 2 shots accepted that showed this unit from the front with decent lighting. I'm curious why you also felt the need to submit a poorly lit shot of the cab end ?

Because the other side is always different, and to me, a bit more interesting then the 'long hood'.

Thanks guys!
