Default Train too far

I guess it's not scenic enough to have the train that far away. Good luck getting that much water going over the falls during Summer Solstice.

I tried cropping it down to try to make the train more prominent, but I think the real issue is the lighting. Absent a well-lit subject that draws your eye, I don't think this will fly.

Those NS engines just suck the light out of an image.

The lighting isn't doing you any favors... it's a scenic location, just think it may be a bridge too far

(pun intended )

Even with a closer crop it's going to get a poor aesthetic quality rejection. The lighting is pretty unworkable.

I have to agree with the rejection.

Default Train too far..

Hi all,

I agree with the rejection. That the train is too far away doesn't bother me that much but the light is simply awful.

Is there a time of day where the light is more favourable?

Cheers

René

This is covered in the recent thread "Backlit rejection".

Not to pile on, but if the lighting was on your side this might work (only a might). The train is a pretty minuscule part of the frame). With the lighting as it is, the train is a splinter-sized shadow.

I'll be a contrarian here, but only to a certain point. I think it's a great shot and I can see if being published in railroad books and magazines provided yu have enough pixels. I could see it hanging on walls in folks homes and offices provided they like this location and maybe if they've said they've never seen a train here. If I had taken it, I
d certainly hang it on my wall and be very pleased with it.

As for RP, not a chance in hell it gets accepted in my opinion. Sorry. That's not a statement on the shot.

Just goes to show that preferences can vary quite a lot and photography can be extremely subjective!
