Exclamation Bad Contrast -_-

Hey there,

i'm a little stumped on this recent rejection for Bad Contrast. I think I need to add a little saturation, but not sure. Since I don't know how to attach a photo here ....I can't show you. However, take a look at the rejection and tell me what you guys think.

Thankyou!

It's very grey and flat. It needs added contrast and more saturation to make it a more pleasing photo. But I don't think you're getting that one on RP due to "cloudy/common."

Very soft.

I personally have had a problem with those trying to tell us to turn railroad photography into an "art form." It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

Nice composition, but the pole growing out of the nose of the lead locomotive is really distracting, in my opinion.

Undersharpened, soft light, and like Chase pointed out, that pole is really distracting.
