I think we're all quite aware there is a screening process. I have also taken some notes away to improve my photography skills.

However, being a railfan, I'm more concerned with the subject...

You're right (except about the 2 year old stuff, unless you're referring to someone else). Ultimately I go railfanning for me, not to please some screener with no name or face.

Yah you betcha!

The only difference in the two angles I see is that the Deshler shot is from farther back, so you can see more roof. I would have had to cross 5 more tracks to get back that far,...

No? Then maybe pointing out MAJOR inconsistencies will help get all the screeners on the same page. I'll "whine" when warranted, thank you.

And on appeal the RU Tower shot was accepted. Because it...

Well... Looks like it was accepted. The angle I took my shot at was the same as the one of Deshler Tower. Otherwise, how do you figure the angle is bad? (in your opinion)

You must have been under the same summer haze I was today Jake.

There a difference between a cloudy day and a hazy day; you still have good light on a hazy day, the sky just isn't bright blue.

Yeah? But you'd think they'd know if tower or caboose shots were "generally accepted" or not. After all, tower is a category and I didn't see anything in the submission guidelines that say you MUST...

Bad motive? To whom?

I have to wonder sometimes, what defines a "bad motive" reject.

Just recently a close-up of a wheel bogey was accepted

I'd crop the lines out of the top and some of the right side to keep it in proportion. The trees on the left look ok, and cropping on the right isn't going to adversly affect the composition of the...
