That was actual photo from rejection post which is about to run out.
==========================================
Poor Aesthetic Quality: This rejection means that the photo is of low aesthetic qualities, does not contain enough rail-related content, or is simply not the type of material we wish to publish.
==========================================
I also tried another fog photo at Dubuque, too dark. It was a little personal as it was one of my last trips with my old dog, to any area I really like.
Never posted that anywhere else, just kind of sitting on it but I read the thread about photos in rain etc and a little leeway so I thought, I got
one of those too???? Hand held out the window braced on arm rest.

Thanks for interest , Bob

Sometimes it's hard to let go of course. Here's one I gave more than a few tries and then quit on. Sharing in reference your nice photo posted yesterday of the BLE F unit.

Could someone please 'splain how one gets a photo to post full size rather than as a thumb that needs to be clicked on???

First, upload your picture as normal. Then click on the link to your picture on the manage attachments page.



That will open a new tab or window with your picture in it. Copy the address of that page and then use it with the insert picture button.




EDIT: I know that looks like a RailPics acid trip, but I hope it makes sense.

Glad it wasn't something obvious that I should have figured out.

(I sometimes sit back in wonderment that Windows works at all.)

Thanks!

You probably got more favorites and comments in the Forum then had you posted and had the shot accepted.

I'd like to see more shots like that in the database - creative and effective capture of rain - no where near as simple as one would think.

Clean the sensor!

Posting full size defeats the purpose of the attachment. Many times the full size will be too wide for the thread page, thus making people have to scroll right and left to view the image or even read posts in the thread.

Edit: I can't even see the full width of my post now that a full size image was posted earlier.

That's good point. I think it's better to just post attachment. Will do that from now on.

Sensor cleaned. You would be good screener.

Good argument to avoid posting large image files. I usually resize to no more than 1200 x whatever for here.

I'm more interested in why you kept labeling the train as a Nippon Sharyu DMU in all your shots of that sequence...

How dare you question my locomotive identification skills or my photograph-labelling.
