Default I guess I need a train..

Rejected for noise twice, then the third time he decided to hit the PEQ button. I've seen a couple of train less photos of this bridge done successfully, I really wanted a moonless night to catch the milky way. Just didn't work in my favor as always. Been planning a shoot like this for a while now, finally got time to do it.. Naturally there was no rail traffic.

Just straight up PEQ.

Thoughts?

I'd let the second shot go. It's just not that visually appealing to me, but the first shot is reallly nice. I don't always see noise or grain, so I can't comment on that, but I like the shot a lot. Are you close enough to go back and reshoot with a train passing using that same composition?

You got the hose on the first one Wayne. While I'm not the one who calls people out on here, there are examples from that spot that have way more noise than yours.


I like the shot, and I'm sorry they didn't. Aside from some headlights trailing overhead from either bridge, it's perfect.

Thats pretty lame, honestly I dont think a train would improve the first one, I like it without better. Guess they must have thought the stars were dust spots, I wonder how many grainy rejections they give because theres dust on their Iphone screen....

Yeah its only about a 15/20 minute drive for me, I would go back and try again tonight, but the weather is not clear. Last nights weather was perfect..

Thanks Loyd, I feel I did too, and I started to post examples last night but decided not too. I appealed it as well, it was rejected...with no comment..

Thanks I don't think it would have either, one of the reasons I didn't hang around for very long, I saw the shot on the LCD and thought it was money and decided to call it a night. And I think you're right it seems like they have been seeing noise a lot lately.

Another PEQ from today. I thought it looked kind of cool, I could have probably moved the water bottle though...

I guess I should just stick to what I'm good at.

Yeah, since I'm sure that pile is not going anywhere soon, I'm going to redo it sans the bottle.

Kinda wish they had just dumped the spikes on the big section of turn out they replaced, there would have been something more to look at.
