On my screen, it looks a little over exposed due to intense sun and lacking some contrast. The sides of the locomotive are overly bright, so the nose appears darker than the rest of the locomotive.

I agree, the bottom and the left hand side need trimmed.

I would be curious to know how you approached this shot. The lights aren't streaky or blurred - It's a beautiful night shot. I have a lot of trouble in low light situations. The photo below is the...

Someone tipped me off that after 4 years of people complaining about this problem, LR put out an update in the last week or so that fixed it. I downloaded it and it solved the problem. I have no way...

Custom aspect in Lightroom

I have a very basic version of LR, apparently. I think it is Lightroom CC and not classic - it says Lightroom version 4.0 from Mac App Store. I need to save an image to a specific aspect 11 x 14 with...

For some reason I didn't think they liked that size. That's good to know, as I have a few that would look much better that way. I also think it would work for the photo in the original post.

It's unfortunate that they don't like the 3:5 aspect because that would be just the ticket for this one! Having said that, I really like the image, and I'm surprised they didn't take it.

Kevin,

I just started using Lightroom around the time I started uploading here. I liked the way it resizes without losing too much quality. But for whatever reason, the version I have says it...

I would trim enough off of the left to get rid of the remnants of the jersey barrier. I don't mind part of the guard rail being there, but I think the whole image needs to be moved to the left a bit.

Blurry Thumbnails

I was looking at the top 24 this morning. Somehow the thumbnail of the top shot looks blurry, which of course makes people click to see, is that really blurry or what is it? I don't know if it's a...

I think I found the issue. There is one thread with some oversized images and maybe some bad html in it. Whenever I click into that thread, it throws the whole site off, even the main page.

Forum Appearance

Does the forum look "off" to anyone else? Some posts seem out of alignment, and I have to scroll back and forth to read posts because of the way they are fit on the page.

For photo number one, I would sharpen ( or use the clarity ) and brighten a bit to bring out the snow.

Curious what shutter speed you used here. I have only had 4 or 5 opportunities to shoot a plow train, or a train hitting a high bank of snow. I seem to have issues with the flying snow creating blur,...

If you have Lightroom, you can selectively adjust the highlights with the brush, and then it would not affect the train. I pay 9.99 a month for Lightroom and you don't get all the features but it's...

#1. I agree that a tighter crop on the top and left would get this in. The train is right smack in the middle, which they don't like. You can take some sky out without losing the clouds.

The only thing I see is a lot of blue sky at the top. I had gotten some rejections for too much space there. I wonder if you cropped closer to the train if it would help.
