Default What does that mean?

What does this rejection mean? Can I save it?

No matter what you do it will still be ruined by the FRED.

looks like it was lightened too much, add more contrast.

How does the FRED ruin the picture? It's not like it's desecrating a caboose.

It doesn't look too bad, just bump up the contrast a little bit.

The same way an open door on a widecab ruins the photo. It just looks dumb.

So when I get this rejection, it usually means to boost the contrast? For this one, I'll do that, thanks guys!

*EDIT*
Tried it, and it failed.

Didn't you already try to get that shot in?

Because there were a ton of shaddows from the light poles, I shot off a ton of shots because the shadows kept getting on the engine as I took the picture. the first few got rejected for bad cropping, so I chose this one with a shadow, but it had the best cropping, and now it isn't...

Nothing wrong with being persistent trying to get a shot in the database. I think what most of the guys above said is right on with the contrast, even though, again, my monitor sucks. The FRED hardly ruins the shot. It just tells another aspect of the story that, even though railfans know this, sometimes there's an engine on the rear of the train.

My one gripe about the shot is technicl. There's not a lot of room between the front of the DPU motor and the right side of the frame. Was this a crop or just out of the camera?

No one said it yet, but the BNSF herald on the nose just looks a tad blurry or soft.

Yes, besides the uncomfortably tight composition, the FRED and open door do ruin those shots. I wouldn't have even taken them, let alone posted them for the public to see, but I guess it comes down personal standards.

I forgot to mention that neither of those shots were taken with a tripod...the one with the open door would have been impossible with one. Well, not impossible, but I didn't feel like taking up the entire walkway and making joggers wait for me to wait for the the train to make its way down the tracks and then to break it down so they could pass.

In 30 or 40 years, I can sit back and look at a wide collection of photos I took way back when, back when my personal standards were sub standard. Oh well, if I only took photos that were perfect in every single way. Silly me...

If you're happy with photos that have strong flaws, then that's great. But I don't like glaring flaws in my photos and I'm sure I'll feel the same way in 30 or 40 years.

Glad to see the warm weather of summer doesn't prevent Mike B. from trolling or Ween from taking the bate.

Please, don't feed the trolls...

Try cropping to lose the floating light fixtures in the upper left corner. I find that distracting, certainly much more than the FRED.

I don't see the FRED (or open doors as flaws), more like character.

Anyway, thanks for the tips and suggestios everyone! Before I upload it, what do you think of the newest version yet?

Getting better, but there's still not enough room on the right side of the frame.
