Railfans are missing the point of this story. Yes, it's touching that UP did this. But this family lost a little boy and we're here congratulating Union Pacific. SMH Just because they're a railroad...

It's been about two months, but I rode by with a friend and found the Progressive Rail SW1500 in Ranlo. I don't hear much about this operation right now. They're on their third operator in less than...

So you're trying to tell me that screening photographs is subjective? Who knew?

That's an utterly boring shot. RP tries to get more viewers with the shots they accept. I can't imagine who would want to click on that. Legit rejection.

It's PAQ, by the way. Not PAC

Not just overexposed, but sixxling. Also, looking at the rails, I don't see why you couldn't have let the train get up almost to the switch almost to the siding.

I actually am using Gimp right now. And let's be clear -- not doing post processing in 2017 is not a bad of honor. At the very least, you need to crop this one

If you have the pixels, try cropping those lights up top out and putting the trains more toward the right of the frame instead of exactly centered. It may not get on, but it'd be a better photograph....

Perhaps it's rare power, but it's not power that can't be shot pretty often I suspect with better control of the camera. I also suspect you should have used the even lighting to get more of a...

It would have been quicker and easier to adjust the brightness down and resubmit than starting this thread since the shot is overexposed.

With better composition and maybe more than just the one unit, I doubt you'd have got background clutter. At least, the composition to me is 95% of the issue with this shot

It does seem too loose, like maybe you were trying to include too much of the passing train. I swear the shot looks like it's leaning CCW.

On second look, you might get away with not cropping off the left, just taking some off the right and top. That at least uncenters the train

The 611 may be common power now, but it's still pretty newsworthy and creates a lot of interest (and thereby clicks) when she runs. FWIW, I like your shot a lot, too.
