All three were common power on cloudy day.

This got the ax for bad cropping and under exposure.
At least I got one in for the day.

The top 2 look like they need sharpened, dunno if it'll get it accepted though.

On the rejected ones, it looks like the light was horrible that day. Not much you can do about that, except try again when it's less hazy (right after a cold front rolls through?).

You must have been under the same summer haze I was today Jake.

There a difference between a cloudy day and a hazy day; you still have good light on a hazy day, the sky just isn't bright blue.

And your first shot has no sky visible. It should be accepted on artistic merit period. No haze would have just been a cherry on top.

The second was pretty good too. The one for cropping would have been better if the motive power had been at the bottom left of frame. Otherwise you're taking shots you've seen accepted here, and that should be accepted in their own right.

Oh well, Grafton... We're under the same screener haze too...

Not only is it a tad on the dark side, but the train looks like it's about to fall into the river.

Cloudy, underexposed wedgies.

A nice shot, but the haze kills it. Also, it may have been better to wait for the train to get more towards the side of that hill on the right.

That alone would give it 10,000 views!

Seriously, though, I agree. If it were sunny, the chances of acceptance drastically improves. Be patient!!

A couple of those might be savable if they were grey scaled. Just a thought. They are good looking shots!

I like the scene in the first three but agree a sunny day would have gotten one of them accepted. I personally like the first one even with the overcast. Could you try and submit as a b&w maybe. All three are the same train shot at different zooms are they not. You might try picking your best for submission in the future, remember they are looking for quality not quanity. After rejecting the first, the other two probably never got a second glance for consideration.

I like the first three, too bad for the rejection.
The one that got accepted is a great shot!

I like the second of the three that were rejected best. Add some saturation to the colors to bring them out more, and add just a bit of contrast. This will help the washed out look of a cloudy day.
