Default Photoshopping

How did this make it? Check out the upper left. I can see the remnants of the telephone pole right above the left numberboard, and the guy wires are visible to the left of the locomotive. These are tell taletale signs of a photoshopped pole and wire.

It took two and a half years of my crappy photos being rejected for me to get even one picture accepted. I wouldn't even think of trying to pass this off.

I understand the screeners view hundreds of photos daily, but i think this one slipped. I love this particular photographers photos, and I really hate to call this out, but after having every photo submitted for 2 years get rejected, then to see this, it's just a bit frustrating.

Well, I think this one should be called out regardless of the uploading experience of the person doing the calling out! Good catch.

Yeah, if you're going to have a telephone pole there,at least shop it out down to the cab (and the grab iron while you're at it, if you're lazy)

WOW!! Great catch on that one! EDIT; You know, these are the things that can frustrate people. for instance, if I liked this curve and wanted to shoot a train there I would be upset to see the poles when I got there thinking that there was no poles there!

I don't necessarily like to "call people out" on their photos either but I wonder how much longer this shot has in the database.

Can't be that big of a deal, it's still in the DB.

From seeing your shots Jim I thought you would hold your shots to a higher standard...

Maybe I'm just naive?
