I have a high definition computer screen and I don't think my slides are high in grain when I view them before submitting them. Am I too tolerant or are the reviewers demanding too much of old slides ? Ed
A) tons of scanned slide shots from that era on RP
b) I personally welcome any RP demand that posters of slide shots do some improvements to them
c) if anything I would say RP is highly inconsistent as I sometimes see scanned slide shots that have extreme issues that seem correctable, and then others don't get accepted and people come to the forum to ask why not

Show us a few of your shots - preferably by providing the URLs to the rejection pages - and let us have a look, please.
My RP pix are here.
My Flickr pix are here.

My commentaries on rail pictures are in my blog.
