I think either can work, but for rail subjects, you either need the foreground element to be of significant interest to be in focus and use settings so it is obvious that it was done for a reason to...

Todd Novak is probably one of the best out there using a drone right now and very much an inspiration. While I mostly agree with the statements about "not operating at the maximum height" I think...

Personally I find that brush in the bottom of Craig's version much more distracting than the cars/photographers in the one from higher up, though I don't think either of them would have qualified for...

I do the same thing, at the end of the day, hard drives for storage are a lot cheaper than the time it would take me to review and delete photos.

If it was a better location where you could have more of a roster shot of the flatcar and load that might have worked, but this angle is too awkward, even with the news piece of it.

I could pretty much see all of these getting on with some additional editing. The rejections seem to be fixable ones and the shots are good overall.

For the grain silo one, do you have an earlier...

I could maybe see the cut off car being the problem, but it doesn't bother me too much. I would like to see the shot added, its decent documentation of the crane.

But that's not the discussion, there's no rejection for "event over." We're talking about shadows that are (not) distracting by the rejection definition.

Honestly there could have been a train...

Exactly. I personally like the low light/long shadow photos that can be created with an aerial view, so long as they can be kept off the train itself.

As far as the comments about the "scene...

Distracting Shadows (with no shadow on the train)

Can anyone help make sense of this? I've tried two different angles/times, neither of which have any shadows that are cast on to the locomotives. Yes there are shadows on the ballast that are close,...

I agree, I'd like to see what you have to work with in the original, as it's already getting on the noisy side in the link you posted.
