Different photo but ?? if we are talking about headlights. Always remember when I got called on a slightly blue so something I keep an eye on. Interesting PC#1 with small number of views and favorites.

Bob
Gorgeous scene, but those lights should be brighter.

He has 4 PCAs from the same area and three are from the same spot. That repetition is impressive.

I can't remember if 40 has nose damage, but I'm sure he would have corrected it in PS if there was lol

See above from the Big Mouth uncatchable Bass himself. Yeah, you can shoot it right the first time, but to select the nose of the shot, de-fuckulate out of the highlights on the nose, then expect it to pass off as "reality" vs his homey who actually got Screeners Choice for keeping it "REAL" aka yeah, ya know........Apparently the screeners know the difference, thank gawd yo!

Looking at immediate prior post not quoted, I am not sure what images are being referred to in either. It is almost like you agree on best. LOL

I think this was difficult image but-
Going back to my original post I did not think the horizontal SC photo of sunset and semaphores was a good screeners choice.

1) there was already similar peoples choice
2) nose was covered with pixel bloom and orange fringing from correcting
3) the train was in an awkward position
4) image quality was a little suspect at 1600 ISO on a entry FX body.

Agree. I am also not sure that I quite understand some of the "technical jargon" being used to describe the nature of the edit that was under discussion. I think (or at least I hope) that the goal of these threads is to learn from the experiences of others.

Ah, I'm sorry. I must have quoted it wrong. ( I thought I did it right, but I guess I was wrong )

Maybe too judgemental and hope he is not on this forum but I would consider the SC(#2) a fail? at least in comparison. Besides some other things the signals and sky cry out for a vertical.

I was really happy to see the Austrian photo make the SC, this not so much.


Bob
#2 is a fail? Is that a joke? Jesus people.

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

I mean, I personally don't like it, but hey, the Screeners did and plenty of other people did, and that's what matters.

No, Bob was asking a question. Otherwise, who stated it was a fail?

Could it be that two screeners were working on the queue at once and they both only saw one of them?

It's possible, just seems like quite the coincidence for them to be back to back numbers.

I was pretty much grasping at straws trying to play devils' advocate. There may be only one person screening period.
