Right on with the rejection... You should have taken the photo on the other side of the locomotive.

I'm puzzled as well, because that shot should have also been rejected for;

Bad cropping
Undersharpened
High Sun
Poor Image Quality

Not just bad lighting though... you also cut some of the engine off.

Remember you are capturing the light first, so capture the side of the engine that is projecting the light, and two, frame the image, capture the entire engine in the frame of your viewfinder. Don't cut any parts of it off.

I knew that part of the engine was cut off, but I decided to see what they said about it, apparently they spot everything...

The big problem I noticed from most of my TSRR pictures from 98 are when I resize them the image quality goes down hill. Any suggestions on that?

Yeah, I'm kind of surprised it was only nabbed for bad lighting. You should've moved to the other side, included the whole locomotive. It's one of those photos you'll have to let go, as there are several things wrong with that image that will prevent it from being accepted.

Edit: You said they spot everything? It's not exactly very appealing looking at an engine that is half cut off.

Yes, good point, they really must have gone over this one with a fine toothed comb to noticed the nose of the engine was cut off

Seriously, do you people read back what you type before you hit submit reply!?!?!??!
