Default stumped

So, I shot this the other day, and it got rejected several times for various things, like under sharpened, blurry, underexposed, ,,so I went back out today and tried again, a little earlier in the evening, and now I get the PEQ, or is it not the type of material we are wishing to publish, in which I will just forget about it,
One thing I noticed is, even though I was on a tripod and focused on the lettering, the lettering still looks a little hazed or something, it seems like after I upload I lost some of the clarity from my original, does it compress the files?? because the uploaded one is 521.62 kb and my orig before uploading was 0.98 MB ?? any ideas on this?

one of the first attempts with late evening sun;

I've noticed that shots always download at a smaller file size than what I uploaded to begin with. Don't know why, have never seen the topic discussed, am also curious to know!

I think you final adjustment was very good - the first one seemed well off in color even considering the evening sun, although of course I was not there to see the reality. I have seen caboose roster shots on RP from time to time and you may want to appeal the final version. It may be that the shot is too "roster shot" like for a railcar, even a caboose.

You guys fail at reading:

6. Save your photos with as little JPEG compression as possible while still keeping the size under 1mb. Don't worry about the large filesize -- your photo will be slightly compressed and reduced in filesize automatically when you upload!

D'oh!
So is that why the green lettering against the orange is fading a bit??
I had uploaded it to a one of my group sites that I know really compresses the files, and it really blew out those letters.

Congrats, Chris! You finally figured out how to use "fail" as part of a sentence instead of an entire one!

Hmmmm I would have thought they would have took that.

Maybe do what J said and try to appeal and see if you get a response back?
