Question Cropping

I am wondering how you guys think I should re-crop this shot. I know it is a standard wedgie and it is not a prize winning shot but I think it can get on the DB.

Thanks guys.

Nathan

Why do you want it on the database? At the best, it's a cutoff 3/4 wedgie in not perfect light. What will this shot do to improve your protographic profile on here?

I think you should skip trying to get it on the db.

This is the kind of photo that would make me scroll down the page faster without clicking on it!

I agree with Loyd, but the main thing I noticed is that you have your location and your remarks are kind of off. The location should be different. If you are having a hard time with the location, just find out what UP Subdivision it is and put that down. As for the remarks, this aint no intermodal. Its a manifest. If you can't tell the difference, you can sift through the DB and find out.

Because I like quantity over quality of course I didn't think it is that bad a shot but I might just leave it alone.

I have no problem with people who want to get basic wedgie shots on the database, especially if they have only three so far. Lots of ways to participate in our hobby.

But if you want to get onto RP, you have to follow the principles here, which means in this case for a basic wedgie you must show the trailing train. So, in terms of RP specifically, it is "that bad" in that it does not fit here.

I do know the difference between intermodal and manifest but I just didn't put it in right. Thanks for pointing it out Pete.
