The only way you can do that is by sticking with a formula, a cookie cutter approach. So I see a lot of the same thing and I don't want to pick out one person or subject and note one who has a good number does have a lot of variety in style and subject.

I understand this is also a little self serving but I think more variety in who what and where besides just the occasional great photo would be good.

I can tell a fair amount of who the photographer was without looking at the name. A lot of photographers have their own styles, which to me, is good. I admit I enjoy railroad photography but I don't have the talent for it like some do. There's a lot of very talented people on here, yourself included.

As for the photo I had questioned. I agree. It's not the best but I think it was in the acceptable range. I know it's the best I could do given the circumstances I had to work with. I'll keep in in the personal files and look for better opportunities where I can control the place I stand and the time of day I take the photos. The rejections can always be used as a reason to go out and try again.
