Think the screeners probably find it a little square-ish... I'd try trimming some of the top off...!

Everything is cut off awkwardly, the train, the pipes at the bottom, the hillside, etc.

Looks like a cloudy shot. If it had been a widecab GE leading, they ould've probably accepted it, because railpictures.net does not want to see good power.

One of the most retarded statements ever on the forums, and there's a lot of stupid things said on here. It got rejected for cropping, which is poor, no matter what the power is.

Oh....no....Railpictures.net does not want to see good power. They want Widecab GE products.

They will gladly accept a cutoff, cloudy, underexposed, over-processed, unlevel shot of a GEVO over a nicely composed, well lit shot of an SD70ACe.

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

The composition is better on that photo. It's a lot better than what Ian posted and therefore, I believe that's why it was accepted.

It's different too with the rock positioned where it is in relevance to the passing train. I like it.

If that's gonna be your attitude, you can get the heck outta here. If your nice, I have no problem with you sticking around. Posting the same stupid comment on every cloudy thread insulting the Admins is a good way to get banned. In fact, you almost seem to be trying to.

Okay this can work 2 ways.

A.) You grow up and act your age, and quit your incessant bickering.

or

B.) Just leave, no one wants to hear this.

Oh hey, lets go for bonus!

C.) You should be grateful your even still on website for what you did and yet you want to push your luck as far as it can. All in all, whenever they ban you, your going to be the one pointing the finger saying they were wrong and that you did no wrong, when you very well know you brought it on yourself.

I live for posts like this anymore.....OP asks for one thing and somehow it just goes in the complete opposite direction but here's the kicker....the OP contributes to the lashouts further "derailing" his own thread....classic

Ahh, the beauty of a discussion. This type of thing has been happening since the beginning of spoken language, Ben.

I somewhat agree partially with idiots' post above w/ James GEVO photo, but on a different note... Someone needs to ask James for the originals so we can see how FILTHY the units are before he edits them.

Anyways, Jim, where's your ban-hammer?

I was half expecting the idiot to post one of your cloudy day/GE wide cab shots as well.

Ok I wont pick on you but you need to look past what gets on here and fix what and how you shoot so you have shots that can get in. It's your shots that don't look great in the light your shooting in, Sunny or cloudy! Your not getting it so school yourself on how to do better and they will get on. I find that guys that shoot video? like you do a crapy job on both so do one or the other till you get it.
