Looks like you may have reprocessed the same shot to much, Make a new one and try that.

What do you mean by reprocessed, and what shot are you using that term in reference to? Thank you for the constructive feedback.

Thats the hard part, the shot looks ok but looks as if you may have fixed the same copy several time with sharping you start to get artifacts, or softer look. I don't know if you did or not but if you still have the original make a copy and rework that. Its the 3 shot i am looking at. its the one that looks like it cropped right to get in.

I need cures for these, if they can be done, especially for someone who uses Picasa. Thanks

#1 looks oversharpened, plus the sky just doesn't look right in color, so maybe you over tweaked it

#2 is just not getting in with dozens of poles in front of the train

#3 not a fan of the composition

#4 is as described

So the question becomes, what do the originals look like? Are you shooting raw or jpg? What lens? Your image quality isn't that good and it might be your processing. Sorry, I have no knowledge of Picasa.

What do you mean by process? Would that be the way I put touches on the shot, or the software, itself? Thank you.

I think I'm using JPG

Process = start with camera, end up with jpg to upload to RP, what did you do in between?

a) what quality settings do you have on the D70? For example, the size of the captured image in pixels, vertical X horizontal?
b) when someone says "I think I'm using JPG" that generally means they don't know their equipment or software. No way to get around putting in the effort to learn what you are doing.
c) what steps do you do in software? Given your lack of knowledge, I think it best that you list them one by one.

I need some cures for this one

1st attempt: http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=684187669


2nd attempt: http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...key=1239613755

My quality settings is probably, the captured images in pixels. I am indeed using JPG.

I need advice for this one: http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=623620&key=0

I'm having trouble understanding the rejection reason for this shot:

RP has a preference against trains at high-level platforms where the trucks are obscured. Try going to the far end of the platform and shoot the train as it arrives, before it gets to the platform.

Previous shot, the 4112, the nose of the train is too close to the left edge.

Thank you. I have had a few pixs published of trains, while I was standing on the high level platforms. By the way, the shot of 4112 was published. I just had to work with cropping the right side of the shot.

If you do a search for the name, John Levai on railpictures.net, that will answer your question.

Oh, I thought you meant published in print media, like a paper, magazine or calendar. A photo on RP isn't considered "published."

Agree with JRMDC, but this also does not look very sharp, especially towards the rear of the train. Appears to more of a depth of field issue rather than just being out of focus / suffering from motion blur.

Is everyone wondering why I haven't posted on my own thread in a little over a month?
It's actually very good news. After learning to understand what RP.net looks for in getting the photographs accepted, understanding my camera(i.e. image quality settings), and software, I have been getting plenty of shots accepted.

I would like to thank everyone, especially JRMDC, for getting me out of the rejection tunnel. However, at times, I will have to shoot the photographs when the sun is high up. I won't submit too many of those to the website, after what I went through a lot last summer. Most of my railfanning will be done when the sun isn't high up.

Sorry for not posting any links because of a poor wireless connection at the time, but just type in my name: John Levai, in the Enter keywords field.
