Well, some of us like 'em if the scene is worthy. I've faved more than a few.
To me, the common-power wedgies in bland surroundings are a yawn.
Plenty of room for all tastes on RP!

No more work posting there than posting here. And despite the staggering number of photos there, the view count is great! (Great as in "more than here"!)

EDIT: Your mileage may vary!

Sure there are publishing costs, but getting 99%+ of your content contributed for free by others sounds like a pretty good deal!

I think it needs to be in color. I basically fiddled with gamma, saturation and color balance 'til I liked what I saw. Good enough for me to save, anyway! Two versions, lighter and a bit darkerL

Yes, there is some fine photography coming from Hungary! :-)

Odd quirk: Windows 10 won't save edits to that photo* (along with some others on RP). Wonder what they add to the file to do that....

I looked elsewhere for shots of that particular engine. They are super, super rare! I found just 2 that were good enough to enlarge and save. I assume it got in because 90% is better than nothing!
