Maybe I need a new monitor, or glasses?
Reject #1

so I use a different frame for a little more angle and get reject #2

I don't see the blurry in #2, but maybe someone else beside the screener does. Both shots might be a little too in your face for RP, although I think the second shot should get in.

in my opinion, like Joe said, the train is way too close for me

Nice light and decent color, but I think the subject is just a bit too close to you. The photo appears a bit unlevel, so once you rotate (plus, do the additional cropping), it might be even worse.

The second one is just the slightest bit blurry, but really, nothing too bad.

I've noticed RP is really cracking down on the littlest things these past few days (don't get me wrong, this isn't a bad thing). A lot of "horizon unlevel" rejections popping up for photos that are just slightly unlevel.

Perhaps the standards are increasing.

All speculation of course.

In all honesty, if you are going to submit a simple shot, such as a wedgie, it should be pretty perfect. I think the same rules that apply to roster shots should be applied to wedgies. Think about it, you spend a mere 5 seconds standing next to the tracks and take your telephoto head on wedgie, you now have more time to correctly process your shot. It's easier to spot a deficiency in a simple photo than it is a more complicated photo or "interest" filled scene. Sorry for the lack of non technical words, haha, I'm tired.

Thanks guys, I used a different frame, with it backed off a bit and that did it.
BTW Ben, it took longer than 5 min, they had a speed restriction...

That is the better shot, Bill. Good decision. The EJ&E was always a railroad I wanted to get up too. Oh, well. By the time I make it up there, there won't be much of it left.
