When s a twilight picture 'too dark' or 'underexposed'?

Rejected first time, too dark. Lightened the mid tones a bit and resubmitted (this version) - now its underexposed it seems. Appealed and rejected. I cant win, obviously. My point - of course it's...

Well I think the first version was terrific, and the dramatic sky added considerably. The second version is, to my eyes, much less interesting.

I think its not so much 'PEQ' but 'Not the type of material we are willing to publish' which is the rejection reason here. Graffiti 'artists' are not 'artists, they are vandals, and I do not think...

On the bus to bad cropsville!

OK, what can I do to improve this? Is it worth it? Is there too much empty space on the bottom? Is there too much space between bus and loco?

Thanks in advance!

For what its worth, I think it's an excellent picture which screams power. I love the telephoto effect and slight heat distortion. The only thing I don't like about it is the figure on the left who...

Bad Contrast?

OK, have these too much contrast, too little contrast, or what? They look fine to me and I rank them amongst the best of the trip. Prints from them are fine too (at least I think so!) As ever,...

I think the 2nd one is a touch overexposed. A touch of shadow/highlight would take the strength out of the white area which is a bit overpowering. Interesting vehicle, though - I want one! Would...
