Default Comments on this shot?

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=119317

I like it as is so off to another site it goes. Got canned for poor lighting, too dark-I don't agree. It was sunset and lightening it up will overexpose it IMO.

It isn't a bad shot by any means, but it is a little dark, probably something you couldn't do much about at sunset. I can see why they rejected it, though it was probably one photo on the threshhold of being accepted. It's not bad.

Did you appeal it? I like it. Great mix of interesting power. It obviously was sunrise or sunset.

Thanks-no, I didn't appeal it. I submit once and that's it. No more upload wild goose chases. Takes too much time.

It was sunset at the time-that's why the lighting. This pic was fresh in my mind, and that's just the way it was lit. To lighten it = ruining it. I'm sticking to my guns on this one.

Why don't you appeal if you think this photo is good. You obviously care enough about it to post here in regards to the photo. To me that would take more time than an appeal. Just let the screeners know why you think it should be let into the database. They might reconsider.

To me, not appeaking a photo you feel strongly about is just idiotic.

I think it was rejected for obstruction . . . the bridge. Sounds silly perhaps but the things we love at times are the things that get photos sent back as well.

Just my thoughts.

For what it's worth, it doesn't look to dark to me. I'd probably agree with the obstruction comment though. Maybe wait for it to emerge on the other side.
Like you said, off to another site.

It's always a sad day when the LVRR gets the boot from RP.net!

That and four others.

Here's where I put North Shore and Lycoming Valley stuff.

I had a shot of a train on a bridge rejected for the same thing a while back, on appeal I was told it was because the cab/number were obstructed by the bridge. Seems a little silly, but not much you can do.
Nice shot anyway.

I agree. Good photo anyway, BTW.
