With all that said, it seems like a better caption in the "DM" one might have saved everyone some trouble. As it stands, the blurred head should keep the shot out of the database IMO. (That and the one shot already in.)

For all you know, Travis may have had 250 rejections out of those 100 accepted or maybe 75 rejected. For you to seriously assume he had all 100+ accepted is crazy.

Chase
Unless Travis had time to upload 350 images in a day, I cant fathom how someone could spend the time to upload even 100 pictures in the day. There were alot of amazing pictures in the series but I also will say there were some that probably should not have gotten on. Im not a screener but its still a bit absurd that someone can get 100+ shots on in one day.
-And yes, nice website Travis lol, not currently in the market for prints though.

Well I will say some got on that I think wouldn't and some got rejected that I thought should have gotten on. I will also say more got accepted then I thought. I planned this out for a couple months. I had all my photos processed and sitting in order. They sat for a month so that I could go back with a critical eye and make any changes I thought were needed. Besides the hours it took to upload it also took hours to go back and add all the captions. Would I do it again? Not at this time.

You say some shots should not have gotten accepted. I think that about 50% of the uploads everyday. We all have our own likes and dislikes in what a good photo is. Did a few slip in? They may have seen the uploads as an organized collection of a trip and may have been more giving then they would have been if uploaded on their own. I don't know. I did leave detail comments to the screeners on many of the photos which may or may not have helped. In the end I think I had a 30% something rejection rate which would be high for as of lately. Two years ago a 30% rejection rate would have been low for me.

Well, considering I have 17, the system has to be flawed somehow...

I got no beef with these LT*E shots being accepted. In the aboveshot, I see two of my favorite motors -- SW1500s. I also see that there's a missing Dash 7 now from the OC.

I dont see what your problem with LTE shots. They are a hell of a lot more interesting than most of the shots posted here.

It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
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

If they move the power or add new one I would like to see it. Kind of fun to see what's there, Some of us like that if you don't why worry about it, it's just a photo.

When I see these shots I always wonder how much they charge for a loose cab off one of those switchers...maybe they're no good but I always thought it would be cool to have one as a storage shed out back!
