If only four photographers have been throttled by the new restrictions, then my thinking is incorrect. My belief is that these are global changes, and not targeted. I have not noticed any...

I disagree with your assessment of the current situation. It looks to me like the linked views have been divorced from the "organic" views for TO24 purposes for everyone. The free reign...

Making everybody play by the same rules is a huge improvement, and level enough to get Jim Thias' approval.



I don't like that idea at all. TO24 is a rolling window and should remain as is....

I agree regarding the reason, but due to the distance from the train, it is hardly noticeable and does not detract from the photo. FWIW, I had a "newsworthy" photo rejected for the same reason two...

I'm glad it's not. As you have said in the past, most foamers are lazy, and will only shoot the low-hanging fruit. If at was all that easy, our results would look like everyone else's.

Mike,

I enjoy seeing your shots, and appreciate the effort that you put into finding locations (I still haven't figured out how you get to those locations between Plainview and Crescent). You have...

Ted,

For photos like this, with no permanent vertical references, I use corners of hoods or cabs. Handrails usually are inconsistent, relatively short, and are easily bent. Looks to me like you...
