Default Well at least it is not for "poor image quality"

Composition/Balance: The composition of this photo is poor relating to the overall balance of the image.

That's next. Why did you even submit this shot, let alone post to the Forums?

Bad crop is for being centered vertically - why admin simply doesn't state this as its own rejection, I'll never understand.

It seems soft overall.
Contrast seems poor as well.

And then you have the brightly lit foreground obstructions.

Whatever. It's a good shot regardless of what a "professional railpictures.net photographer" thinks

No disrespect intended - I tell it like I see it and assume you came to the Forums for a constructive opinion. My apologies if you were expecting jokes, flames and a thread en route to 2,000 unrelated responses.

Do you disagree with my observations? The foreground issue? The softness and lack of contrast? Or the fact that the engine is not positioned to follow the rule of thirds?

Bad cropping, bad contrast, bad color, foreground obstructions, lens flare, etc.

Why are you getting defensive? Everyone's poop stinks from time to time, even a "professional railpictures.net photographer's" poop.

If you didn't care about the opinions of "professional railpictures.net photographers". Why did you post it on the Railpictures.net forums?

Well, considering just a few months ago he was submitting shots taken with an $85 4 MP camera, it's not surprising. http://forums.railpictures.net/showthread.php?t=16831

I didn't recognize his forum name at first when I first saw this thread, but this is the same kid who took to facebook crying about his previous "bad image quality" shot being rejected.

Nothing can be said in this thread to change anything. It's a lost cost and it's obvious he only started this thread to troll the RP forum.

Yes, because all my friends on FB like it.

Well.......

Except you.

And, FB doesn't have a "dis-like" button.
