There are only two rejections linked, FWIW.

This one's easy enough fix (did you read these, BTW?):

"For normal landscape images, our recommended height for a 1024 pixel wide image is 680 to 768 pixels."

These are too square.

Hey Ian, knock it off with the multiple threads for the same shot! This has been mentioned before, I believe. Just add any follow-up rejections to the previous thread.

The first one has some wood railing in front that has no business being in a picture of this type. The second one, the rejection is correct.

Why do you post so damn many threads?? CONSOLIDATE!!!

How do you still have so many uploads each day? I think we need to start with one photo and go from there. You have WAY too many threads about multiple rejects to respond to. It's difficult to even see what you are changing in some of the photos. Let's get reasonable here.

Forget photo uploads, let's get into when and why someone may need a new thread limit? Seriously, keeping all the rejects in one thread will help us help you. I got to that Santa Fe unit on a bridge shot at least one thread too late and replied not realizing the shot was part of another thread elsewhere. It will keep things a lot clearer all together.

I think that the only what to make that shot work is to avoid making the train so small in the frame, i.e. shoot through the railing as a frame and not so far back from the bridge. Same idea as in the shot below...

Or like this crop of your shot... something along these lines.

Those shadows on the ugly wood railing isnt helping his cause, your cropping looks like a faux frame too

I've told you this in previous threads and I will tell you this again. SET YOUR CROP TO STAY AT A 2:3 RATIO AND LEAVE IT!!!!!!!

Instead of making two separate posts, learn to quote or include all of what you have to say into a single post.. It's rather annoying.

Peter zip it. There is no hard and fast defined way to crop. Its all personal preference.

I personally have had a problem with those trying to tell us to turn railroad photography into an "art form." It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
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
