Lightbulb Bad Cropping?

Reason(s) for Rejection: - Bad Cropping: Most often this means that the composition of the photo is poor as it relates the cropping of the image.

I don't see the need to keep the middle of the trailing unit. The glint on the edge is also distracting, it pulls the eye off the frame. Crop left, and then you can crop top and get rid of the horizontal wires. And level. And when I sharpen, I always select off the blue sky with wires in it, to avoid the sort of sharpening halo you have on the lowest/thickest of the diagonal wires.

No heritage. I've heard rumors that along with the server update, RP will no longer accept pics without heritage.

RP announcing new online format: ALL NS, ALL THE TIME.

No more pictures of substandard railroads - Just NS, because anything else is CRAP.

Ask for it by name, "NS."

Because there are no substitutes.

Reason(s) for Rejection: - Bad Angle: The angle from which the image was composed is poor. This can include extreme angles below or above the subject, uninteresting angles on roster shots, and images in which the train is going away from the viewer.

Turning serious now, this is just an awkward photo. The gate pole is right in the middle of the lead unit, in front of something interesting (the burn mark.) And the shadows are distracting. And as for the bad angle, it could be said that the train is going away. In this instance, a wedgie would've looked better as there is absolutely nothing to make me see why this angle is the right one here.


Annnnnnd scene.

That was my audition for a new movie coming out. I'm playing the TROY.

I was doing this (see below) only with a train at a grade crossing.



Here is my wedgie for that day.

They hated this one too since the angle is so wide.
