I'm confused, but this should end up being a good read, nevertheless.

Well Coast,

since you seem to be so eager to do this, how about you start this off?

Why dedicate a whole thread to something like this? Seems rather pointless to me.

I was considering it but decided no when i first posted this...
you'd have to have seen my posts in a different thread...

but I'll give a brief description of those posts...

http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=288162
http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=257334
i did not like how the screener decided to abide from some of their rules that had rejected all my photos and let these two photos into the database despite cloudy skies, going away shots, a train that's pretty much minuscule, the fact that the first one has people taking up most of the image, and the fact they are both including nearly naked women.

here's our heated discussion after i deleted my first two comments

Um, not by California standards.

They is dressed to enough for a party, or to work at a bar.

And I dislike this photo because it seems a bit over done and sensationalistic.

A quick glance at the other thread (I didn't follow it too closely, which is a shame, as it looked fun), it appeared that you disagreed with the human element being introduced into RP.net the way it was. You complained that your photos were rejected, while others were accepted, that did not follow the guidelines.

Personally, I find the photo submitted by Nick Benson to be very tastefully done. As he explained very well in the other thread, it took a lot of effort to get the scene just right. That's truly working for a shot and I'm glad to see it awarded, rightfully. I have a lot more respect for material like that rather than a cloudy day overcast photo of an Amtrak train going away, like the one displayed in your avatar.

I'd like to see the photos you had rejected, if that's possible? Rather than commenting negatively about the work of others, you could ask the forum participants to help you improve your work?

I generally dislike 3 types of photos:

1. put a girl in it
2. derailments
3. Larry's Truck and Electric

Which is funny, because my favorite photo of all would be one with a girl in at at Larry's T&E overlooking a derailment. In the snow.



As for this thread, this OP doesn't seem really interested in discussing photos he or others might not like (which could actually be constructive) but rather whining that his photo(s) were rejected when others "just like it" were accepted. Except that the others accepted were actually nothing like his and got in on their own merits. Although that second photo is very, very loosely rail related as the train is obviously an afterthought.

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

Didn't ripping other people's photos on the forums used to be considered in poor taste?

I think it still is. The question here is, is there a difference between ripping someone's picture and ripping the screeners for accepting someone's picture because you don't think it belongs on RP? Of course, there are plenty of threads here that already do that . . .

We've tried. I've tried. He won't leave that EFFING platform at Jack London Square. Like, I've never shot a shot from there, and everyone here knows I practically lived in JLS.

Seriously, Starlate kid, either STFU or improve your work, these rants are getting old (albeit funny, kinda like DV on Obscar!)

I dont get how you look at RP and see the stuff at JLS and want to sit at possibly the worst photo angle there? I think Steven has shown everyone who looks at RP the plethora of different options and angles.

And sometimes in order to better ourselves we have to step out of our comfort zones. Leave the platform, Coast. Explore the world.

It's not personal coast starlight, the people here are just trying to help you. I used to submit backlit, going away, unlevel, high sunned and poorly composed photos.

Now I have 35 photos on the site and am moving towards the big 50. The advice here is good, it will teach you some things that are universal fundamentals (for example, I wence when my friends take pictures with the sun at their backs and then wonder why the pictures look terrible) and there are some things that fundamentals for raipictures.net.

Do I see things on here that I don't like? Of course. No one likes everything.

As to what's being said about having models in pictures, you have to find someone you are friendly enough with pose, find a time they are free, in the case of freight trains, hope a train will be running the right way, figure out how to entertain them because not everyone is going to be cool just chilling for hours waiting for a train, or you have to hire models and pay by the hour.

Platforms can be good, and can be bad, it depends on the situation, but if you limit yourself to platforms, your really limiting yourself. With a good understanding of train movement and signaling systems, a train won't ever catch you off guard, and if your concerned about personal safety, purchase a can of mace, or take up martial arts.

And platforms aren't always that safe unless it's a manned station.

Moral of the story, if you take things personally, your just going to burn out.
