I really like the PCC shot, but I'd like to see a little more of the building in the frame.

On my computer monitor, there is definitely something funky going on with the maroon paint job on two of the locomotives in the shot. Perhaps that's what the screener saw?

Don't Shoot that Tank Engine!

The only time I came seriously close to being arrested was in Fort Morgan, Colorado. There were, at that time, three ex-Great Western sugar 0-4-0Ts displayed in town, including one at the...

Who's afraid of ISO 5000?

Don't be afraid of high ISOs, especially with newer DLSRs. This image was shot with a Canon 6D at ISO 5000 because I needed f13 to keep the station signs sharp all the way to the back of the...

I apologize, I should have clarified. I too have no real issue with your shot. It is well lit and clearly posed. It just fits under the "Women draw views", but that isn't a creepy shot like the other...

Go Retro

The photo of Julianna with the NKP unit reminded me of the 1950s "cheesecake" advertising that was popular at the time - and is popular again with the retro crowd - and that's why I posted it. I...

Maybe I've been lucky, but I've had two Canon 28-135 lenses in the past ten years, and each one was quite sharp at f8. It can be a pretty good lens. Several of my shots on RP were taken with one. ...

Todd, this is how I'd crop it. Cut out the ties altogether and use the bridge to frame the PCC - put the car nearly dead center. Now it draws your eyes right to the streetcar. You'll need some...

Thanks for the advice, guys! I wanted to make sure that there wasn't something wrong that I was overlooking. I'll decide if I want to appeal or do some tweaking and resubmit.

Appeal?

I have to admit, I'm surprised at this rejection. Thought I had a winner. Should I appeal or just let it go?

Cropping/Composition Advice Needed

I submitted this shot which was rejected for bad cropping/composition:

I then went for a little wider shot, which was also...

The clouds are less of an issue for me than the composition. I understand the intent, but it looks like a grab shot. I like the road in the shot, but you need less of it. More train, less road.

I don't think the high sun is really a huge issue, because the trees and the water are strong elements here. The bigger issue for me is that the train is cut off. Does the original image include...
