I agree 100% with you. I've seen plenty of shots from the 50-70s that look amazing for that time period, and I'm guessing on many of them that processing took a key roll in making them look so good. Nothing wrong with that.

Regarding Don's caboose shot, I'm fairly confident that it would have been accepted without hesitation had there been a railroad employee or two standing on the rear platform of the caboose. I like the shot, but it just feels like something is missing. Being a caboose, a bit of human element would have really separated that shot from what it is. I know he can't go back and change that, but that's just my observation.
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

This pretty much sums it up:
