Default Any hope?

This is an older picture I took in '07 back when I shot with a P+S still. It was a misty day light rain when Amtrak 195 showed up and all the passengers were on the wrong side. The train had to stop just short of the crosswalk and let the passengers crossover. It was about 25 people coming back from a birthday party that were gonna give the lucky birthday boy a train ride with his friends to Richmond from Ashland. The engineer left his lights on and actually made it look somewhat like he may have been moving. I got the backlit rejection, but is there any way that I may be able to lighten this up and possibly get this in, or is this better just staying on RRPA and in the personal photo albums?

Thanks,

I tried various crops: but the fact that the locomotive is blocked plus the PIQ of the camera I think will keep this from being accepted.

Poor Image Quality would be the first box I'd click if I were a screener. I don't think it's fixable.

Was that a joke?

It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

No joke. RP doesn't like foreground objects (in this instance people) blocking the view of the locomotive.

Been stung by that at least once.

Poor image quality. I agree with Joe in that I don't think you can fix it.
