I had a post the other day about a high sun rejection. I was afraid to post any earlier photos because I had a feeling I would get the following rejection:

Any suggestions?
Thanks!

The problem here is that the wheels are in the shadows which is why they hit you with "high sun."


See how there are shadows on the wheels and on the plow in this image?

Leaning into the Turn

They no lika that here.

Also, your image is way too saturated and the colors look odd.

That is referred to here as a picture from "Candyland."

Since the reject is cloudy/common, at least it is as of now when I clicked on the link, the above explanation makes no sense. It responds to the text of the OP but not the image.

You have a basic wedgie and the sun is behind the clouds. RP doesn't go for that. End of story. No cure, no suggestions, sorry.

Agreed. I was scratching my head over that one.

This.

If this were the first pic of that locomotive, it probably would have been accepted. But now that it's been whored out, perfect lighting is necessary.

Then why does this crap get approved? The faintly visible rainbow? I like the rejected shot better, probably get on with some brightening and saturation.

Nikos, you know better than to try to compare to shots that made it on; shots always slip through with what appear to be questionable characteristics.

I did a double-take at that pair of shots, until I saw that they were actually of different trains.

Ya, that is why I included the image.

I try to answer the OP's question as stated, not as how I think it should be stated.

I think you are being generous, the image is lacking in my respects.

I also like how NS jumped in there and whored out their equipment first.

I must say though I am disappointed by the quality of their effort since the company PR photos are not that good.

I took the "high sun" part of his sentence as a reminder that there had been a previous thread, but it was clear to me that he was now asking about a different shot with different issues, one where the sun was not out to cause a high sun issue. Seemed clear to me.

Still does!

I was not aware of the other thread, or didn't pay attention.

Ok so... I probably won't try to add this photo anymore. I got the photos that I wanted of it, though.

Thanks!

Yeah, "probably" definitely falls into the generous category.

Fact is, when a new paint scheme or locomotive shows up, they usually accept shots taken in less-than-ideal conditions. I see it happen time and time again.
