Default I'm kind of bummed on this one..

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=292562

Bad motive? Low esthetic qualities? It looks great to me.. or am I only kidding myself because I took the picture?


and other's I probably won't gripe about.. Just would like all'y'all to see

I think maybe the lightstreaks by the trucks are killing the shots chances of being accepted. Other than that, everything looks good to me. (At a glance)

I think it is the light streaks. This might have been a better shot just shootng the units without the train passing in front of it. There aso seems to be some color issues that basic post processing could fix. (The shot is too yellow.)

The light streaks in the first one don't do much for me. I'm not saying it's a bad shot just that the streaks don't relate to anything in the photo.

I like the concept of the second reject, it just needs a bit of post processing to bring it up. (see attached image)

In the third reject you need to include the bottom of the loco. Yes I know that's a hard task given it goes all the way down to the rail and the angle you have taken the photo from.

Cheers,
Christine.

like I said, I won't (and didn't) gripe much about the third one, nice work on touching up the other one, maybe I'll try to get the original to look more like that.. I do have a version of the first one without the van crossing in front of it, I just thought that people would like that one.. but.. oh well.. I'll submit one without the van.

Alright, I got the second one admitted to the database after some touch up on it
http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=159776

It doesn't look exactly like your touchup Switched.. but I did it, and it worked.. thanks for the help, still working on the another version of the Utah Railway picture there.
