There is always the comment about guard rail photography. Of course the bees do it, the birds do it, we all do it but this kinda takes it to the next level??? Have to admit he has that CN mining thing down.

Oh, it's not really horrible though. How about that nice shot of a field full of litter yesterday?

Who is better to get opinions, feedback and true view counts from? Social media trolls or railfans? To me, its those who truly appreciate the subject matter, and that would be the railfans. At least when we could see where the views where coming from, we had a gauge and knew how well the railfan community appreciated ours or other's photos. Before the campaigning, if and when our pics hit TOP24 on their own and with no other help from outside of RP, we knew how well it was appreciated. Now we just have to do more digging and process of elimination to determine what us true railfans want to know. So how about it RP??? Will you reinstate the view count link?
I don't look at the "Site Related" thread very often, but Chris K just posted a good explanation of why that feature is gone.

I still like my idea of putting all or most new photos on the front page. The front page hasn't been overhauled in a long time (if ever).

I decided why wait for an answer in this thread so I made a new one in the "Site releated ..." section. Yes I was surprised to get such a quick response (less than an hour) Chris's response was informative but I agree with you and other suggestions that hopefully there is a another solution to obtain the info we seek.

Bob,

Check out Chris Kilroy's latest post in the Site Related Forum, in the thread called "Linking and the Front Page." Chris addressed the question about changing the format of the home page (it will not be changing) and the issue of folks linking their way to To24 spots (which just recently changed).

Does anyone know what changed? His post, while interesting, was vague and I'm curious as to what was modified or changed.

Thanks again, Bob

What is the opposite of cross-eyed? Because that is what my eyes do when I look at that picture. Most of these type pictures don't bother me, maybe it is the curve of the road.

I really like that composition, especially with the contrasting curves of the tracks and the bridge.

I like curving roadways/bridges in foregrounds, too:

(bridge isn't curving, but still a similar composition)

I couldn't find the exact quote that applies here, but it was something like: "stand still too long and moss might grow on you".

This a pleasing well executed composition, the inclusion of bridge structure, guard rail and background makes the photo. Something I will keep in mind to try when the opportunity is there.

The one I mentioned has a guard rail with dirty out of focus road junk on the top. It coveys the "impression" of jumping out of the car at the last minute, this is all I got, it don't git no better**. For me, no value added but as was noted for another, lots of views.

Thanks. I wasn't a big fan at the moment I took it, but it grew on me. I was more or less trying to include my friends in the shot, and it ended up working out better than I had planned, especially with the downtown area of Lansing being visible.
