Default Acceptible on this site?

Well things were slow today on the UP rails I was watching,I got a little creative spark and decided to shoot this picture , is this type of shot allowed on this site or is it not rail related enough? Eighter way I really like it, something out of the ordinary.

Try here, instead.

http://tractorpictures.com


You have a rail there, in your tractor photo.
If you had a tractor in your railroad photo, that
would be a different story.

BTW- the site above is real.

a) I presonally would not want to see it here, but it isn't a community of one!

b) doesn't one want at least some of the rail content to be in focus?

c) if you submit, at least do a crop on the right and sky, to move the tractor over from the center and to eliminate dead space

It's not a railroad picture. It just happens to have a rail out of focus in the shot that makes it look more like an accident than anything. The tractor is too small in the picture to be able to tell that it's a tractor picture for my tastes. Save the screeners and yourself some time and don't upload it here.

If you used to be interested in tractors, but aren't interested in them any more, would you be an extractor fan ? (Geddit?)

Oh dear let's not start another thread full of puns.....
