A power line here or there, I can live with it. But those giant bundles of fiber optic cables are very annoying to me. (I think that's what is in the really think cable) I really like the concept...

Ben,

It has unusual balance. That by itself is not necessarily a bad thing. But a screener clicking rapidly through submissions might not realize that the objects on the left tell the story as...

I really like where you're going with this but I agree that there's too much dark space to the left. Dare I say on May 4th that you have given in to the Dark Side? Have you thought about cropping...

I appreciate everyone's comments. In case anyone was curious, my attempt to repeal the rejection was denied. Oh well. At least a few folks on here were able to see the shot a few times before it...

The dreaded PEQ - Opinions Welcomed

I got the dreaded PEQ on this one. I was looking over the conductor's shoulder while in the cab car during a meet between two GO Trains.

I was trying to capture the profile of a railroader in...

The world didn't end - so please help with composition rejection!

I really like this shot so I'm probably biased. I'd like to hear everyone's opinions on how I can crop this for acceptance.

Thanks from the 3rd planet from the sun which is still rotating at the...

Agree. Need a little more "railroad" in the photo. Even a distant headlight might work. But just not enough there at this point. The crossovers on the left don't draw that much attention so it...

Anyone got a magic blue pill? I've had several versions of this dinged for being soft. I usually go by the numberboards and I thought they looked pretty sharp. Although I don't have the best eye. ...

I really like the non-traditional composition but I agree that it needs to be cropped a little tighter. The crossing, Canadian road signs, traffic backed up... All add to a unique view. I think...

My first thought was there is too much dead space on the right. But the more I look at it, the more I like it. The platform supports add some interest and overall the photo is very sharp and has...

I agree with Joe's comments in regards to composition. In my own opinion, the empty pitching rubber is uninteresting. Could you reshoot it either with an actual game or at least a "staged" little...

A little too much dead space on the left side of your rejected spot in my opinion. A little digital crop should solve it fairly easily.

Fond memories of the ex-C&O GP39's and the ex-RGD/D&H/Guilford GP39-2's working around Pittsburgh on CSX in the early 90's. They had a very unique sound unlike any other EMD. Neat little engines!

There are quite a few night shots in the database of signals and signal bridges. I like this one with the APPROACH MEDIUM position light signals and the distant light hitting the rail. Any thoughts...

Don,

I love shots taken out the front window and this one is a winner in my book. Thanks for sharing with us. I just wish it was in the database for more people to see!

Nice catch with the SD40-2 on the point and the classic CP signals. But I think the dead space on the right combined with being on the shadowed side kind of hurts the overall effect. If you...

BC from UP and CP

Would appreciate a little advice on this one. The original RAW file isn't quite this tight so I could give more room on either side. But I kind of like it the way it is.

I'm not sure about knuckles but painting wheels (not trucks) is now a no-no because the paint makes it harder to spot defects such as hairline cracks. Painting knuckles might be taboo for the same...
