Once upon a time, I too got ulcers over rejections here, although about 80% were accepted. Everything changed once my Flickr views left my RP views in the dust. Sometimes I don't even bother...

Obviously, you are correct about the bridge incline.
The fog shot is not very "appealing" [:lol:] though.

Agreed 100% on that! If something I want is on FB, I download it as fast as I can, then get the heck out of there.

I like this scene- the question is how bright should it be. I think I like this edit best (but maybe I'll prefer a different one tomorrow).

Flickr/SmugMug is encouraging viewers to gift "PRO" for a year to those who have photos over 1000 at risk. Sort of like GoFundMe. I'm not really sure what I think about it...:confused:

Yeah, that would explain why the clone was necessary. I just spotted where the clone came from.

There's oddness across the top as well. Could this have been shot from inside a car on the road?

When I clone something, I make sure even the sharpest eyes can't spot it! :twisted:

I would boost the highlights while taking care not to make these look like daytime photos.

A bit. But some really awful things have sneaked in recently- leaning 2 degrees, bad color, blocked up shadows etc. One was so lacking in contrast I increased contrast 100 on a scale of 0 to 100. But...

Metro-North's former New York Central lines use an under-running third rail, which is covered on the top and sides. Even so, there was plenty of opposition when third rail was extended up to Brewster...

Same here, except if they restrict Explore to paying accounts. Explore gets you a lot of views, faves and comments, and everything you do on Flickr snowballs into even more views, faves and comments....

Maybe he could try at a different time of day, or even during a snowstorm. (With the first or last car visible.)

FWIW, I would have accepted the tight curve shot. Maybe if the end of the train was visible, they would take it?

BTW, the very existence of an uncovered third rail anywhere is outrageous to me....

True that. There is no way to know which photos will get the axe. How many photos can I view in less than 3 months? Surely not hundreds of thousands! :shock:

Flickr (or should that be SmugMug) really could have handled this in a less thuggish way, maybe grandfathering those over the new limit. A quick estimate puts several hundred thousand photos at risk...

Surely your 1,100,000 views on Flickr are worth something! (I expect to top the million mark there maybe next year).

Is any other photo site offering even that much space for $0.00?

Good video! But I hope that short train is not the norm up there. Most of the Central Vermont trains I encountered were 100 cars or more.

The lean is very, very slight, but try to split the left/right difference. The suspicion arises that they are not enthusiastic about this shot.
