Being a writer, I'm surprised you haven't taken the opportunity to correct my grammar mistakes more often.

I think from now on I'll call myself a "Railroad Camera Technician".

Or are you telling me that they have some sort of separate control with which they can regulate an attached diesel (a sort of remote control - not a true MU)?

3) There is quite a list of diesels that can't MU either.

4) This arguement can go on forever and frankly I'm just having fun, not really defending anything so have at it if you want. I honestly don't care if you call a locomotive a jellybean. Call it whatever rmakes you happy. As noted from the start, I only mentioned it because Jim is the Official RP Forum Word Policeman, so he had earned being dinged.

5) I don't have a five, but I typed it so I'm filling it in.
1) I agree.
2) They have what are called "MU stands" installed to make them capable of MUing with diesels.
3) Most of the diesels on that list are now razor blades.
4) I've come to the conclusion that facetiousness, sarcasm, and a variety of other forms of expression do not translate to the RP.net forums.
5) Mets suck!

Here's the problem - and it actually is very much a part of the original conversation on communication, sarcasm relies on tonality to be flagged as sarcasm. There is no tone in on-line text.

I could be writing this with a Ben Stein drone to clarify (through exaggeration) that I'm just playing along, but you may read it hearing my words spoken with overeager cadence that makes it sound like I'm a priggish little anal pore.

Which one is it?

And yes, the Mets suck. (How did I say that? Like Ben Stein or like Richard Simmons?)

Doesn't really matter does it? They suck anyway.

But photography is all about tonality. So as tonality hobbyists we should be able to figure it out!

Reason(s) For Rejection:
- Bad Composition (bad framing / aircraft not centered)
- Subject too far / too much dead space
- JPG compression artefacts
- Watermark too intrusive

Interesting difference between there and here, though it was mentioned before. Also find the "Watermark too intrusive" rejecting interesting. I think that watermark would fly here, although I typically don't like them at all.

I tried to get a few shots accepted there, but ran into problems with just inputting the right data. I gave up quickly becauseI just didn't want the aggrivation. I do want to shoot more jets. Charlotte, NC has a great overlook that I want to get back to.

These are a few of the shots I tried to upload. I was lucky enough to get a tour of the new Boeing facility in Charleston, SC and to also seethe first roll out of the new 787

They only allow their Jetphotos watermark which you can see proudly cover over many photos on the site. I'm a professional photographer and I use my work to share and to promote myself.

They did leave me a comment on my appeal though to explain that, which was very nice as, I just assumed the rules here and there were similar.

Watermarks of all kinds suck.

Apparently pro photogs use them, Loyd. I'm sorry, I meant professional photographers, because they use their work to share and to promote themselves.

Hi Travis,

The Marine Corps Helo pictured in this shot is a VH-3D. It is a variant of the legendary Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King. It's a very old helicopter, but is still the mainstay of Marine Helicopter Squadron One (HMX-1), which is the outfit that flies the President. The VH-3Ds are used for most domestic Presidential travel. I believe that HMX-1 is the only operator left in the US Military that flies the H-3.

The VH-60 that your data calls out is a Sikorsky Blackhawk variant and is a much newer machine. HMX-1 does indeed fly that model, but it is generally used on long trips where it is impractical for the Marine crews to fly the helicopter to the destination. The VH-60 has the advantage of folding rotor blades, so it can be rapidly put aboard a C-17 or C-5 for easy transport. The VH-3D can also be airlifted, but the process to break it down is much more labor-intensive. The rotors on the Presidential VH-3 versions do not fold like the ones you used to see recovering the astronauts back in the 60s.

Generally speaking, when shooting helos, it is best to use a slow shutter speed, so there is at least some blur in the rotor system. Freezing the rotors looks a little freaky to any aviator, because a helo in that situation would fall out of the sky like a rock.
