That's a fair statement. I can live with that. I felt that pulling back would have taken away from more detail. But I do have photos are that from further back.

You assume I know nothing about the site. Why, because I don't have 10,654 posts like you? You know what they say about assuming too much. You are too eager jump on a post without being civil. A...

Sometimes railroading is not always aesthetic!

I very rarely use this forum to complain about a photo that didn't make it. But I feel like the site dropped the ball on this one. Everything in railroading is not shiny and pretty, especially not...

Power lines, typical angle, all that bad stuff. Personally, I like any train shot in the snow. It should get views if you put it on Railroadpicturearchives.net.

I don't think the reference to Flickr was necessary. There are hundreds if not thousands of shots on there that are high quality photos. That is what makes this site come across as elitist when you...

Too much sky, and a cloudy day, among other things. I do like the bridge.

Proof of a SOU reporting mark

I don't know who is wrong or right on this issue. I'm just glad it was brought up because I had the same question after photographing a high-hood that still had the SOU reporting marks:...

Troy, I could, and have, but then there would be no hill and trees in the background for contrast. I like what Mark did with the photo. I think Hatchetman's is probably too saturated for the...

Thanks Mitch. I'm glad you like some aspects of it. I just think taking the blue away would take away some of the "cold" look of it. And the early morning feel. I do realize the screeners don't...

The other side of the caboose offers a view of the back of a grocery store. So it really isn't a good option. That and the fact the sun never shines on the other side.

It's blue because it was early morning. I know what you mean about the poles, but I'm pretty sure those poles aren't going anywhere anytime soon. Don't be sorry Ian. I appreciate the honesty.

B&O caboose 902891

Ok guys, have at it. What do you find that is wrong with this photo, and what is good, if anything. It got rejected and sounds like the site doesn't want to touch it with a ten foot pole. ...

Ian, that shot with the sign blocking the train is not typical of you. You're usually a much better photographer than that! But IMG 1485 is much better.

I think they would be setting a bad precedent if they accepted something like that. The focus of this website is supposed to be on the trains, not an action figure. If you could have found a way to...

I'm glad you guys were able to have some fun with the photo. Not bad at all, considering you didn't have the 5MB file to work with. Photoshop is the root of all evil in my opinion, so I'd never...

They may not like how the subjects meet right in the center. Not saying I agree with their "bad crop" reasoning. I personally like it.

Like you guys have said, this was just a bad spot for a photograph. I don't think I've ever seen anyone use that angle for this spot, so when the sun came out I knew I wanted to give it a try. I was...

"Rio Grande" Bad Crop?

Greene Junction in Connellsville on the CSX Keystone Sub still has three working CPL's. Somehow everything in the else area got replaced.

I think it would make for a proper silhouette photo if the whole outline of the entire engine was visible. And the wires tend to make for a distraction.

I cropped it so tight to get rid of an annoying natural gas marker. It was pretty far to the left in the shot but too risky to leave it in and get rejected for it. This was a photo location I can go...

Norfolk Southern is much better in black and white. UP has too bright of colors. It's a pretty decent photo, just not for here.

I can see how you might think that. So I went and dug up my photos from just a day earlier, and the time is correct on all of those ones. It was just back in July and I can still remember the general...
