Default Is There Anything I Can Do?

When I was in Marion yesterday, I was blessed with a race between two SD40s running long hood forward. My favorite shot of them was of them pounding the diamonds at the same time. However, it was rejected for high sun.

Is there any hope, or do I just throw it in the personal collection?

On the other hand, I got in a shot of them starting the race:

Well its side light, and think it can make it, if you tell them it side light, maybe as the no shadow under the DB's. May have killed it with one you got in a head of it. try in two weeks?

As said before, primary light is side light, not enough on the nose. From the shadow of headlight, you can tell the sun is about 45 degrees, which isn't that bad.

Ok, I'll let this one go for now, though I might try again in a few weeks. Though I am happy that the other one was second most viewed of yesterday.
