I'm surprised this one didn't get the bad angle, or even obstruction nix.

maybe it's the secret to getting it accepted, too!

I have to resubmit, now that I look at it again, I think it needs a little CW rotation tweak.

Even just a mention of a derailment or repair will get views ...

From now on, no more "CP 671 grinds downgrade on a beautiful summer evening"
"CP 671 has no locomotives which have been in a derailment or had to have been wreck repaired. This is not a special train or a steam train or an excursion."

Yep, that's definitely the secret. The other option is to shoot something from up high, it prompts the viewer to click to see what's in the photo.

Certainly not ... I think I am going to have to get a few female friends together for some photography!

Here's the question ... loco or pax train?

So that's why my two guys shaking hands didn't get accepted.

Next time I need a female conductor and passenger

Good one.
But you are still going to have to decide on how to crop it.

A fake accident is my most popular.

Not sure I agree... that's one heck of a locomotive. I really like its lines, the way it stands so proud over the scene, the jacket it's wearing... oh, never mind.

I got one. Pose a smoking hot chick on a railroad track in a portrait type but not particularly railroady shot and see if any of the screeners can bring themselves to reject her for "Poor Esthetic Quality"

Better yet. Put her on an abandoned track like the ones that have been rejected here lately.
