What in lens distortion?
You didn't see the press release where they extended the locomotive 40 feet to accommodate additional passengers?

Also quite oversharpened, but it's the typical quality level from him.

A good reason not to place the lead unit so close to the corner!

I like extra sharp images, but this is really overboard. When you've got halos from sharpening you know you've pushed it WAY too far!

Not to mention the entire scene is leaning to the left.

That one is pretty horrid, you have to question what the submitter was thinking for even submitting that, and what the screener was thinking for accepting it.

Maybe it was a late night game of screening while drunk to see if anyone would notice.

Steve has some nice shots, so why he would even submit this is beyond me...

I don't know, the power line looks pretty level, one of the cross bucks looks level (the other is about to fall over) and farm building looks generally level.

I agree, this seems like one of those photos that looks unlevel at first but might actually be level.

The terrain does fool the eye a little, but it's still leaning left slightly.

Yup - blow that sucker way up and the verticals on the buildings lean left as do the fence posts. Even the trees all lean left and when they're that close together they're all reaching straight up for the sun and any effect of prevailing wind is mitigated.

Because over-saturated / overly blue drone photos whored out via links on facebook deserve more recognition.

Yes, the excess blue actually killed the brilliant color of the autumn leaves.

Hey, but at least the turquoise sky matches the turquoise paint job on the locos!

Not friends with him on FB, but was wondering how his average wedgies were getting to Top of 24 all the time. Guess this explains it.

It doesn't take photo stats to spot the FB whores, if you pay attention to trends.

Views over 2k, favorites under 10 is usually a tip off for me

Or follow him and the greatest railroad photographer ever.

I have a few which fit that criteria, but they are also like 8-10 years old. One has over 4,000 views and is my whore out "Larry's Truck and Electric" type shot at Progressive Rail in Waycross, GA that probably got a TO24 that day or something

Drone curiosity: Wonder What percentage are accepted, what are the criterion, are there special rejections? Do we see only the best submitted or??? Fall colors and sunsets sell. I would not have called this out but when I saw it it didn't strike me as a compelling(good) drone shot.

Also:
I have not see too many of the moving night flash shots lately, not sure if that is worn off or waiting for shorter days. Some are Very good and others are like the camera trap on a trail, ok for mountain lions but not so much for trains. I wonder about the acceptance ratio of those also.

I could probably find out a ballpark acceptance ratio for both, and it's too high regardless .

Drone photos to me are such a "gimmick shot", especially at this point. Photo quality on most of them is still pretty poor too, there is always some image quality or focus issue with them
