Maybe, had it been a random car instead of a railroad police car. I'm not a huge fan of the shot, but I understand why it was acccepted.

I dunno, what is the focus of the photo? I say the car which is rail related, anyway they should have blocked out that hideous ChiCom tea kettle. I would give every shot of that horrifically ugly thing a PEQ rejection if I were a screener, oh and the IAIS ones too.

And while we are at it, am I the only one that learned to spell aesthetic as opposed to esthetic? I can't even type it, looks so weird.

Great looking locomotive, good picture. I don't know why people are complaining about it.

If you have to ask that, then the car dont belong

The fact that the car is owned by the railroad does not mean it's rail related. They should then let every photo in which has some old ratty track inspectors truck blocking the train.

You can't be rhetorical can you? You can be pretty insufferable though, I have figured that out.

Might be worth getting yourself a passport and discovering what is beyond where the Turnpike ends. May even discover other people who put an "a" on aesthetics.

That's a very nice shot. Most people would dial it down for more depth of field, but this is how I would want to do it. It might be a little too saturated, but the depth of field is perfect, IMO.

Blur is a good thing in some cases...

Are you talking to me? I have been To Canada, Mexico and 38 states. My opposition to the Tea Kettle is not that it is Chinese but that I think it is hideously ugly.

No - but I can see the confusion, as I took your aesthetics comment.

I was referring to the Xenophobic comment (which I think was made in jest, and was not made by you).

Thin skin is not allowed on these forums.



I would suggest however - go beyond North America, young man! There is a whole lot more to see! (This is not being obnoxious - just advice - see the world - it's really great.)

I would love to, but finances and a disabled wife make it difficult.

I happen to love the paint job on that Chi-Com loco.

Sorry about your situation.

If you can however - do see what you can. I have cut back on travel a huge amount as I have raised a family.

When they get out of the house, I plan to get back to it.

As for my xenophobic remark, yes it was a joke, and I have been beyond the turnpike enough to know that theres no place like home. Join the Army, see exotic places they said...

All I got see was sand...

I was just having fun back.

That being said, thank you for your service! No joking there.

Thanks for the kind words, Ron; I achieved exactly the effect I was seeking. I also didn't bump the saturation too much on this shot; the sun setting over Puget Sound through a hazy sky naturally gave the whole scene a warm tone.
