Default Would this get approved?

This was taken at sunset with the sun behind the train. I know backlit. The train was also going thru a big stirring of dust. This was taken in downtown Tehachapi. I like it and others have too. So?

Very nice dramatic effect there. Looks a tad overexposed but not horribly. The only way to find out if it would get approved is to submit it.

Yeah that's the down side, or upside depending on how you look at it of a long time exposure. The original photo I got blamed for didtally manipulating it when all did was adjust levels, so i resubmitted a slightly better one I think.

Well the verdict is still out on my latest submission. It's been in the que all afternoon. The other one of the DPU's was rejected, too soft, but got a comment "The image is rather soft/fuzzy. Great shot, though."

Default Rejected - salvageable?

Can this be salvaged? It came back as - Undersharpened (Soft): Should I waste my time?
