Yeah unfortunately the Power Desk often uses a "hp/ton" application without consideration of such "other" factors.

Go ahead and keep shooting those snow storm shots, and stop worrying about whether they get accepted by RP or not. I would agree on punching up the shot in post as LLoyd suggested. The first one is...

No, it shouldn't. But it is probably not going to go away. Maybe you should respond with lots of accepted shots taken in "high sun," just to force them to acknowledge their inconsistency in...

I think the screeners are mistaking lens distortion and/or the "horizon" not being the same height from left to right (due to parts of it being closer to your position, i.e., perspective distortion)...

Why don't you show the SOOC shot? It's probably a better starting point (I was under the impression that the one you submitted was "uncropped" sorry).

Stop worrying about the stupid screeners. If there's an issue with this shot, it's the camera being pointed too high, making it unbalanced. Your subject is too low in the frame, as opposed to the...

This was a model developed at the behest of BNSF, in order to get a reduced cost AC traction unit for non-coal service (primarily intermodal) where AC traction 6 axles are unnecessary overkill. FEC...

Meanwhile, there's thousands they "accepted" with the SAME supposed "defect."

This ("backlighting = bad") "foamer j/o rules of photography" BS is exactly why I won't waste my time submitting photos to RP.net. Some of the BEST shots are "backlit."

I don't have any trouble with the clouds or colors, but I do think the framing is an issue, since the shimmering rails and the position of the train tend to lead the eye right to the (left) frame...
