Default Rejected photo approved!

One of my rejections from this evening got approved on the second try. I even got a "thanks" from the screener, cool! Sometimes these rejections are vague on what needs to be done, well this time I guessed right.

Anyone else think there should be a way on an appeal to resubmit another photo instead of going thru everything again and hoping it works and they might not know it's an appeal adjustment?

I like that shot, Dave with its very vivid and crisp colors. 65 mph? Wow!

Yes, I agree with you as far as your appeal idea is concerned. Every appeal and situation is different, but I think for the most part it's a pretty easy process.

For me it depends on the reason for rejection, and how strongly I disagree with it. In the last couple of weeks, I have appealed several photos on the first rejection and they have been accepted.

There are times where I don't mind trying to "fix" what the screener found wrong with a photo. And sometimes I end up liking the picture better.

Thanks Chuck. My original was 2 frames after this shot, the engine was in my face and I tightly cropped it. I like it, but this one is overall better.

On rejections my favorite thing to do is monitor the new approvals and see the mood of the current screener then resubmit if I can. The funniest thing is one photo getting rejected, then a month later getting approved and becoming photo of the day! LOL

Default Great photo

Did you use a shutter remote, or manualy snap the photo? It doesn't look like any zoom was used, and the proximity from the camera to the tracks was just a few feet. If you used a shutter remote, great timing! If you manned the camera, then you must have looked like the Maxell guy, as the train was slamming you in the face with 65 Mph wind.
