Oh, and a CP filter takes off some of the high-sun harshness as well.




Well, fortunately its fairly easy to get a shot of a common train in Larkspur in good lighting. Maybe that's what the screener is taking into consideration.
Yes I think you are right Jim. Most shots can be retaken to get better lighting.

I think I am my own worst enemy when I *THINK* the lighting is not bad enough to warrant a high sun. I'd be better off not thinking (says also my wife ) about whether its close enough.

case in point:

Vertical shadows say high sun - but I still try to rationalize that it does not detract *that bad* from the photo.

I just need to stop submitting something that does not cast a side shadow of some sort.
