Given the age and subject, I would have hoped it would be accepted. The backlighting is not especially bad either where the whole nose is just dark. Oh well...thanks for sharing here.

RP has never really seemed to be one for accepting photos of MOW equipment in my experience.

I get hit with undersharp rejections all the time. I always sharpen to what looks good to me and sharpen on export but still run into issues. Usually a bit more sharpness and resubmit is good to go,...

I assume they want it less "yellow" though it looks fine to me for a shot around that time of day. However, it does look like it's leaning a little left looking at the building on the left and bridge...

I agree, too tall. Good candidate for 16x10 or 16x9. It might be a hair tight on the left, but I don't think it's so tight that it's an issue. However, it's still just a 3/4 wedge shot at a generic...

Personally, I don't think that the amount of prior photos at a location should have any bearing on rejection or even deciding what to submit. Yes I wouldn't post them back to back but over time I...

Yeah lots of weirdness going on along the top and the right side, as was said it seems like a rebuilt rotation.

7 Day Viewing: Composition

Captured this shot of a whitetail buck darting in front of a CSX intermodal train, unfortunately, nature didn't cooperate and time things right for a perfect composition. While it doesn't follow the...

As for cutting the train off with the edge of the frame, I have always seen it as a general composition rule. Most times, not cutting it off abruptly creates a...

I like what you're going for, but agree with the same reasons Doug posted above. If it were me, I would also crop out some more of the bottom of the frame. That's just me though.

I've had about 50/50 luck with appeals, Probably have appealed around 15 images, though I haven't really kept track. I have only gotten a comment once on a rejection.

I definitely like what you're going for here, and the building is very interesting, but I'm not sure this particular execution works.

Personally I care less about what it looks like coming out of the camera, I think it's more about what it looked like in person and how well the final image (edited or not) reflects that.

I think if it was just outdoor shop materials then the foreground rejection would be baffling, but with the rail/wires/and pole sticking up right in front of the unit, I agree with the rejection. I'm...

I agree, that's possible, but there is also a rejection for trespassing that can be used if that's the primary reason for rejection.
