I wonder how far they had to go for more power.

Everything appears to be leaning to the left except the silo in the extreme distance.

I honestly don't think they will accept it. Is it worth "spending" an appeal on?

I was about to post a re-edit of the BNSF- but the trees and grass still did not look good. I think the "should not be re-submitted" call is spot on. :-(

Ouch! Are they putting brighter lamps in crossing flashers? Short of magic, I don't see any hope for the dry street shot.

The wet street shot is intriguing, though. I'd like to see the engine cab...

My rule was that the sun absolutely had to be dead center in the frame to avoid internal reflections. Of all the cameras I used, the Argus C3 "Brick" was a good choice (surprisingly) for shooting the...
