Default Advice Would Be Appreciated

I had pretty weak sun so I tried some new things.... Not much luck though. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Common power, common angle.... I appealed as the leaser is long hood forward with no ditchlights but appeal rejected. Any advice here?

Bad cropping on these two....where would you crop?

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=147175
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=147178

Bad motive:

I think this is interesting...screener didn't though

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=147173

Unlevel horizon: Poles show its a little crooked to the left but it's less than a degree..... I guess I'll try.

Thanks!

Common Angle maybe, common power certainly not. I suggest you appear this one.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=147175
I'd crop a little more off the bottom and left here.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=147178
I'll have to say let this one go. It's interesting, but not really RP material.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=147173
This shot's pretty neat, the branches look wierd up there on the car, but I'll also suggest you let this one go.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=147171
Give this one a slight rotation to the left.

Hope this helps!

White sky = Reject. Almost all the time. Blue sky is best with dark clouds that show texture getting in at times . . . but over exposed and or just bland smoke/smog/fog/your choice here, just do not make for Good photos. They can be good reference photographs, but unless very RARE won't make the database.

I'd probably appeal the long hood forward NREX B unit on basis of it being an odd thing to see this up front. I do have to ask if the train was moving and what the particulars were. But a few things probably turned the screener off of this one including the sky and the fact that the UP power is cut off at the very end. If you have a version of this one with more train, I'd try it.

On this one http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=147175 it's the washed out sky and the pole coming out of the front of the lead loco and the flowers to the left of the frame.

I actually like this one a lot http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=147178 but it's probably not RP material.

Let http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=147173 remain in your personal collection.

There's probably a few things working against http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=147171 aside from the slightly unlevel horizon. There's a lot of lead room betweeen the nose and the right side of the frame. The pole on the left side is cut off at the top and there's somthing of a shadow on the front trucks.

Well one of them worked....The rotation one.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=112783


The one with the flowers I may crop a little as well as the one with the UP and NREX. I actually have the whole train in it.... I guess I cropped too much though. I might try that one again. I'll follow up one those two... The others will remain in my personal collection.

On the shot with the roundhouse/shops as well as the long hood forward one my original shots were better than my edited one. I guess like they say, go with your gut. Sometimes changes are for the worse.

Thanks everyone for the advice!!!
