Well, the lighting has been a subject on these forums lately. In this picture, I don't think the "poor lighting" (their words, not mine) really detracts. It's just a matter at this point if the screeners or admins change their mind on that aspect. The shot does look a bit dark/underexposed, which can probably be fixed in post processing.

One issue I see is that the shot looks a little soft. At the very least, it needs some sharpening.

Our colleague brings up a valid point though.....

What about shots that have decent nose-light on them, but are otherwise backlit? I have seen numerous shots in the data base with those characteristics and some of them are actually very pretty shots.

Clearly, there are degrees of high sun and backlit. I am guessing that to get in, the shot has to have content/interest that outweighs the less-than-perfect lighting. I'm also guessing that the different Screeners have different tolerances for shadowy pictures.

There are a ton of common wedgie pics in the database that have great nose lighting, but also display the dark side of the train. Meanwhile, others that aren't common wedgies showing great nose light and the dark side of the train get rejected for backlit. I agree that this is an inconsistancy between different screeners.
