Vertical cropping is interesting, strange choice for some of them. They are all different locations so i dont see it as a problem though ive gotten it for less than that.

Well, 2 of 3 should be no problem. Three of three, different locations for first and third shots? Some people just like lots of RP uploads, different strokes, different folks. One could just as easily kick shots where the person goes to the same spot week after week and gets the same wedgie angle. I think having combos like this is just part of having an RP that allows all sorts of shots and all sorts of motivations for uploading shots.

PS: And besides, if you look at his work more broadly, at least his most recent 15 , you see some nice variety, including this one I just left a comment on:

So I don't have a problem with this.

I certainly would've tried some horizontal compositions, as not only would add at least make the scene a bit "different" (instead of the current three verticals), but it would've most likely given the contributor a bit more views.

I'd say, as it stands now, he'll be lucky to get 350 views out of all three of those images combined.

Steven has some very nice shots. No doubt about that. The second of the three STPs is really nice. I love the lines of the tracks in the foreground. Not calling him out as a photog at all.

Steven does a great job with his P&S camera. A lot of night exposures, etc. with decent quality results.

I basically edited a bunch of photos from yesterday all different locations and tried them all, wasn't expecting all of them to make it i did take some horizontals at each location but the Verticals turned out just a little bit better. Thank you for the comments been trying to go to different locations then the boring shots i usually get in Durand and if i do go there i try something new or other than the average shot. Not to often any more do the 35's leading on a southbound unless its cloudy out, so i took advantage of the sunlight.

Not at all. They all look different enough to me to stand on their own.

They're all similar, but they're different too.
