You're mixing your analogies, too. NS isn't a news source in this scenario. That would RP. NS is the large corporation trying to get their brand out there at the same time trying to promote a good image. We can debate whether these photos are doing that. It's a bit of a con game that they want to be first to get the images out. And like I said, I would suggest better and different ways to do it. But there's a bit of an absurd arguement here that the photos should all be great. They're not trying to be great; they're rolling the units out of the shop and having pictures made. I didn't note the clouds in the PRR shot or the high sun in the Interstate shot.
