i know the first two are kinda going away/ kinda not-blue-sky, but what do you think?

third?

fourth?


(and did they really just send me a happy birthday wish email...)

I can't see the first two getting past the screeners. As you say, going away shots. Same for the last one - too many trees, going away shot, and we can't even see that much of the train.

The third one definitely has potential though. Needs some cropping, and maybe a little contrast, but I could see that in the database.

None of them are bad, but only #3 fits in with what they are looking for.

troy12n 04-22-2011 12:45 PM

Maybe #3, but it's unlevel, overexposed, high sun. The rest, no.

Joe the Photog 04-22-2011 01:14 PM

Why would they send you a birthday wish? They have something against you, right? Afterall, you don't think they even try on your shots anymore. Although I still don't know what that means. Agree with Troy on what he said about the shots. #3 is your best chance, but it's a slim chance itself.

happy birthday!

is that ok?

Greg P 04-22-2011 10:11 PM

The Happy Birthday is automatic. :)

As for the pictures, you can have a going away and a coming to, and I think the San Juaqin is running cab forward. What might hurt you is nose light on the cab car's front.

The Montana picture has a chance.

Did you get a rejection on your birthday?

Me on the other hand, I didn't get rejected, and even got a present from NS while spending my birthday with family in SC!

P.S I meant to shoot more 'nose on', but oh well not my complete best, but I love the scene, and power!

It's a good picture. Composition, color, lighting are all good. Congratulations.

Am I the only one that thinks it could use a little more work? It seems too red and overexposed, slightly. Is this better?

I'm with you Peter. It seems at least a little over exposed and under sharpened.

troy12n 04-23-2011 07:20 PM

For the record, it seems he made no changes at all prior to submitting that photo and I am kind of surprised it got in as-is.

Why do you come here and ask if you are not going to follow through on the suggestions.

coborn35 04-23-2011 07:25 PM

Because its a free country.
