looks like your on the wrong side of the sun, looking at the shadows... the whole right side of the train is in the dark.

There's nothing that jumps out about this shot as being inherently bad, but it doesn't jump out as being especially good. Shots with light on the nose but shadows on the side of the train facing us are tricky. Some work really well and I have some really good ones on this site, but also have had some rejected. Each shot is different and about the only thing to ensure that they work is keep shooting!!!

Thanks guys! But if I lighten it up in a photo editing program, do you think it has a shot?

Probably not. This is one of those things that just can't be fixed. It's not a horrible shot by any means, and it might be a good idea to try this shot again when the sun is on that side of the tracks.

UP Freak;

There's no reason not to play around with that shot in post processing. Muck around with the brigtness/contrast and hue/saturatoin. If nothing else, it gives you some good practice in processing shots. Another piece of advice is to shoot photos for yourself, not for Railpictures or publication anywhere else. Get creative and don't follow any web site rules for anything other than submitting shots to that web site.
