Greetings!  
 
This is the place to ask for advice on how to fix your pictures, or how to do it better next time.  All photographs and all questions are welcome here.  In particular, if RP.Net rejected your picture and you want help understanding the rejection or fixing it for resubmission, this is the place to come.

Why did you post these pictures?  Did they get rejected from RP.Net?  If so, what did they say?  
 
And haven't we seen that last one, of the mechanic, before?

Rob, I think we have.
 
Anyway, the first one is for poor lighting. Not enough light on the nose.

It would take me a two page letter to explain why they rejected them.  Poor lighting, poor image quality, dont except common power on a cloudy day, not what they are looking for.  I m tired of trying and about to give up

Well if those are the rejection reasons they are pretty much spot on.  Never give up, just keep trying and trying. It would be stupid to just give up.

Railpictures.net is to me a joke. Granted there are many great photos I just cant figure out why the reject stuff. Somebody posted a picture of at Bessemer and Lake Erie SD38AC but stated it was a SD40-2. I posted a comment that I even used spell check on, it simply stated the unit was a SD38AC purchased new by the B&LE….And they rejected it! I have seen some nice photos rejected, but I have seen a million pictures of ES44DCs BORING! Try railpicture archives for your pics. You sign up, create a folder and away you go….

They tend to want ppl to send data corrections to the photographer through the photog contact option.  What kind of comment would you rather have shown with you photos?  A "Wow, awesome scenery and lighting...great job." or a "Hey, this an SD38AC, not a SD40-2."?
