Default Going Away Exception????

I have gotten some going away exceptions, thought this could be one.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...71&key=1543022

Central element is the signal bridge then the station. The train provides lighting for the bridge and provides a framing element??

Just looking for feedback if my thinking is way off or not.

Thanks Bob.

P.S. as an element of honesty, I might have used an earlier frame with the train less prominent but the signal bridge was not sharp. I must have readjusted the focus as the train moved into the frame.

I like it too!

It won't get it on here, but maybe the sky could be blacker?

Works for me, too.

Tell the screeners that they're DPU's and they are not going away!

Liked the lighting in your case. While I thought narrow gauge tracks and semaphore signal are exceptional in my case....

Out-of-the-window shots don't seem to appeal too much to the screeners. Here's one of mine that was rejected:


Another going-away of mine that didn't make it:

Sometimes it helps if the shot makes sense as a whole, is more appealing. The more wrong with it, the more likely the screener will click on something. In this case, I don't see the value for all the detail on the left edge, in particular the structural with "...ART" (ELKHART) on the end. That bright spot relative to the scene pulls the eyes left. I'd crop left side and try again, see if the screener is still bugged by the going away.

Thanks, I saw that also, thinking of bringing it in closer to the signal bridge. Just a little hard where to cut it off.

Well I tried a crop so then got a hue rejection. Corrected that and then got the going away rejection again plus a note of uncorrected upload, without a screener comment. circling the drain on this one so time to forget before both sides get !#!###

But thanks, the correction is better.

Worked as is for me - that bright light helped balance the scene and even if the eyes go there first, they go to the engines second almost creating a "vacuum" sucking the engine forward - there was a nice sense of motion.

Thanks Mitch!. If I tried this one, I'd probably get the boot. Street Lighting.

Nothing wrong with street lighting.

I like the un-appealed first shot better - more interesting.

As for getting "the boot", I'd say more likely for cropping - the train is centered in the frame, top to bottom.
