Default Sunrise on the BNSF in WV

This was rejected, but I thought it was kind of neat and wanted anyone interested to have a peek. I liked the red light of the sunrise on the orange.

Plus, we just don't see GP60B units through here everyday

Take care

Nice shot, Jim. Depending on the rejection reason, I'd appeal.

Joe,
It was rejected for "poor lighting" too dark. I lightend it up a bit and it was rejected for being underexposed. If they wanted it they would have accepted it, its just not what the screeners are looking for and I don't plan to appeal or resubmit it.
I just posted it here because I like the effect of the red light from the sunrise and I have never seen a GP60B in person, so I thought it was neat.

Jim,

Thanks for posting that photo, I enjoyed viewing it. I also enjoyed your comments about that GP60B and it being the first time you'd seen that model in the flesh. Isn't it exciting! Keep that photo, when things get dull you can always pull it out and remember the excitment of that catch. And it will improve with age.

Nice shot. The lighting makes the photograph.

Nice shot Jim. Speaking of GP60B's, I saw one for the second time just today. My first sighting was a few weeks prior, both being BNSF units (not sure if it was the same unit number).

First (and only) time I got a movie of a GEVO, it was paired up with a GP60B ! BNSF puts a lot of faith in those GEVOs to put them with a B unit!

Well, a GEVO behind an EMD is just getting a shove, so theoretically, they're putting faith into a fine EMD product.
