Windmills are eyesores and a blight on the landscape (IMO).
But I'll try to be objective. My first impression was "soft overall", and an enlargement confirmed that.

Iona Island: Both park and RR police consider Iona Island to be "a hangout for troublemakers". And that's even if the visitor does not stray from the one public road that leads to the grade crossing.

LOL!
That immediately reminded me of Railroad Magazine boss Freeman Hubbard's infatuation with those. Especially by one photographer whose name I don't recall at the moment.

Yeah, you can find those artifacts if you really, really take a close look at the photo.
Still, I'll take this one over the soft and the leaning photos that have been accepted recently. :roll:

FWIW, I like them, especially the first one! Where was it taken?

Some of them would benefit from highlight/shadow/contrast tweaking.

More suitable for Facebook, IMO. :twisted:

Just for fun, I googled "mundane railroad pictures". About half the results were better than the shot in the crosshairs! Even a few worth saving.

Hmmm.
So the square format* Waffle House sign gets in, and this better shot gets the boot.
I wonder if it was the same screener. :roll:

*I thought RP admin did not like square shots!

This one was a tossup. Recently they accepted a shot of a dirty weathered engine with the sun so high that the trucks were nearly invisible. [Did Elite help it get on? Who knows? :twisted:]

I became curious as to what shade a Cotton Belt caboose should actually be. An image search was no help at all- some were bright red, some were boxcar red!
