I agree with Chase.

By allowing someone to accomplish the basic unit of rail photgraphy, a good wedge and then move on, RP is creating the top photographers of tomorrow. Make it harder to get in, they will be turned away, go to some mediocre site and not progress in their photography. We would all lose in the long run.

Although I grew up as the others of my generation on Beebe/Clegg perfect wedges, by the time I was any good, I eschewed them in my own work. So I have only two diesel wedge shots and maybe eight steam in the db.

And no, I'm not going to say anything with the word "wade " in it...

I Foam Therefore I Am.

I am on Flickr as well:
