If they weren't so picky, there'd be a bunch shitty photos on this site. That's what flickr and rrpicarchives is for.

By the way, I'd love to see the unedited photo. I bet it looks nothing like that. Quite a nice job with the processing.

Which is likely the result of uploading a bunch of photos and the same screener rejecting them. Not sure how or why that would seem unusual for anyone.

True. But trying to explain to them that I like to stand out by railroad tracks for hours at a time seems to perplex many of them. :lol:

I've been using their tranmitter/receiver system for work for the past 20 months and they've been very reliable. Can't complain one bit about them and they are very affordable.
