Reminds me of someone else on the forums....

Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

Yes. I haven't been involved in the forums so much these past few months, so I just wanna take this moment to say thanks to all the fine posters who have made this forum a joy to read each and every day. I remember a time when it would be weeks, literally weeks before a good thread took off. Now, this place is lighting off the big guns almost DAILY. Thanks again and please keep up the good work.

More likely one was in appeal for a long time and he submitted a new one. Now he gets to pick what one he has pulled

Not sure what to say. I hope it was as Scott suggested.

No one would actually puposefully put up the same shot twice. That's just crazy. I've done it accidentally once or twice, caught the mistake and e-mailed an admin who took it down. It's actually kinda easy t accidentally upload the same picture twice if you're not keeping track of what is up and what is not.

I find duplicate images here at least once per week. No need to make a big deal about it, I think a private message to the photographer or the admins would suffice.

I would have kept the one that didn't have the train cut off by the right side of the frame. The balance of it felt better than the one that was kept.

Looks better with the trees on the right and the loco more to the left, IMO:

Why not? Look at everything else people can try in an attempt to get photos on here. I'm not saying that Ian did it on purpose, but I'll bet there are people who do.

I can think of two people in particular are really bad at double, or even triple uploading the same shot months or years apart. I actually hold both of the photographers in high regard and find them to be classy guys. Because of that, I'm sure it was just an overlook on their part.... but with being said, it annoys me to no end when they do it.

This was entirely un-intentional. I had submitted an appeal for the bad cropping put on the 2nd photo. Meanwhile, I had submitted a re-crop of it for RP ( on my 3rd attempt ); and it was accepted.

My apologies to the admins for creating a bit of a problem, as it was completely by fluke luck, and accident.

He has spoken, understandable mistake, but for future reference...If feel as if the appeals process takes too long, then just don't bother with it and just keep editing 'til it gets to the Screeners liking. In other words just choose one or the other so that another incident like this doesn't happen again.

Hey, at least Ian's processing doesn't make his images look like Candyland, PA.

No worries! I didn't truthfully intend to expect it take THAT long. Usually a day or so. But the problem has been resolved and is over with. I understand your point as well...

Well I don't except this explanation for a minute because it is just too simple and clearly lacks the necessary intrigue and evasiveness.

This is clearly the work of an imposter!

Well how else is this thread going to last for five more pages in true ObsCar style?

That dead horse will continue to be beaten as long as Candyland continues to be photographed.

Cmon now....


But in all seriousnes, I've had this issue before but forgot how I mended the issue. Looks dull and dead on this screen (laptop) but looking at monitors at work or anywhere else my shots DO look like candy land. So this saturation thing everyone obviously has a problem with really isn't intentional. What would you guys suggest? Calibrate my screen ( have no idea how to do that with a laptop screen) against a monitor that shows this "candy land"?
