I remember this. Interesting that the word "integrity" appears on it. Did you ever get any satisfaction?

Thanks for the advice guys. I had an early flight this morning, and I'm finally in my hotel room, or I would have replied sooner.

The root cause of my issues was oversharpening. I start my...

The whether the source of the image is a digital camera or film, the final image is the deciding factor. Based on your observations, I'll let this one go. Thanks.

Is this noisy?

Got this rejection. I don't see it, but some of you have better eyes and monitors than me for this sort of thing.

That only works for accepted photos. For rejections, you need to copy the URL and paste into the post.

Amen! If my first impression of a shot is that it was taken with a drone, the perspective is too distracting to make the subject compelling enough to want to see more. One or two guys that I follow...

He has a higher average number of views than Mike Danneman. That can't be due to people just wanting to click on the thumbnails.

That has been a long-standing debate - how to organize the slides. I was pretty good about labeling them, but they went back into the yellow boxes after that. The "old heads" in the Allentown area...

Mike,

Due to some setbacks in working for a series of startups, I've been financially bound to film for longer than I would have liked. Now that I've found a stable full-time gig, I'm...

I agree. If you have that many accepted photos here, you should have an idea of what will fly and what won't at RP. Feel free to push the boundaries with submissions, but don't complain about the...

I think that by cutting off both sides of the bridge as well as the top, you will triple the transgression. I am surprised that this one was accepted.

It's interesting on some levels, but there's no doubt that the truss members are obstructing the locos. If the truss members were trees in a rural setting, I doubt that the screener could find the...

If you showed more of the train, the sign would go unchallenged. As is, despite your intent, it is just a roster shot, and roster shots have to be close to perfect to warrant an RP acceptance.

And you would have had a merge with the low-hanging branches on the left. Compositionally, I like it as-is, and I don't see the screener's issue. If you process in lightroom, you might try leaving...
