Thumbs down PAQ again

Hi,

I don't know witch is the screener who's don't like my pictures...

PAQ for both of them:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...29&key=5386897

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...03&key=6712508

I'm really surprised for the first one, with my explanation there is a real interest for Railpictures users...

Daniel.

Photos of MOW equipment have always had a long history of getting the PAQ.

I prefer the second one.

As always, I have an intense dislike for large watermarks! Most can be removed, so why bother adding them in the first place?

1st shot is unique, but it isn't easy to see what's going on without reading the caption. The workers seem to be standing around, and while the human aspect is nice, it doesn't give a feel that they're working, it lacks action, IMO. That said, in favor of the second picture, however.

I really like the second. The first - compared to many generic accepted MOW shots, would be a welcome addition, but on its own, not sure I like the composition with the pole straight down the middle of the frame.

Both show a process, each captured well - with the exception of the first with centered pole.

For the second - perhaps try again, but darken the brighter parts of the image - perhaps a graduated neutral density filter for the bottom ever so slight, and less brightness to the far right - even if it means cropping slightly, but only if the brightness can't be reduced.

Good luck!

That's a shame because complementary of RPN #66337

Maybe mention that you had permission to take the photo, and were wearing the required safety gear? That seems to be the way to do it. Otherwise, some people might assume you were trespassing, and RP doesn't want to convey that.

Outside of that little tidbit of info you didn't include in the caption, I can't see why they'd reject this. It's a very cool shot. Lots to look at and appreciate.

I agree, that's possible, but there is also a rejection for trespassing that can be used if that's the primary reason for rejection.
