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

[photoid=636837]

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 had to click on the shot to get it, but when I did, it made perfect sense. It's a beautiful photograph and it conveys a sense of hope even as the track looms over there on the side somewhat hard to...

And bad lighting. I was looking for shots of this loco on RP after UP unveiled it and it took a while for the first one to show up here. I actually gave up looking. Since they had already lost the...

If that works for you, that's great. Don't expect others to do the same thing just because that's your attitude

Best place to have that work out for you would be Facebook though

So you think a filmmaker should make a movie and then not market it? Or there should be a football game that never gets broadcasted? True though. Most rock bands never try to get on radio.

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
