So true, Mitch, so true. And you certainly know which image I'm partial to:

It's baffling to me how you didn't get any awards for that, yet Pete got a #1 PCA.

Some like rods down, some do not care. Taking an image from 2 feet above the ground vs standing vs using a ladder, while all similar, can make all the difference to another photographer as can shooting wide and cropping vs shooting telephoto without cropping - neither one is "better" but one may have a completely different appeal to a certain audience. Heck, I've gone back and re-shot a scene only to capture different cloud formations or steam engine plumes. Bring it on. Is it "BEST railroad photos on the net" or "Our favorite railroad photos (or first posted) photos on the net"?
Well stated. I'm curious to what Chris and Chris would respond with on this matter.
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

This pretty much sums it up:
