Correct, and there are some spots and/or some days and/or some trains that just will not results in an RP-level shot.

Exactly. And on the shot above, I got cloud F'd. It was just one of those days where you win some and you lose some. But it's not always about getting shots accepted to RP. I submit about 5% of the total shots that I take of trains.

Cool

Wow, I would "Like" the last post, but I can't seem to find the like button.

It really is all about RP.

Copy and paste the URL of your rejection.

For the photo on RP, grab the six digit photo ID and put it in tags like this:

[photoid=xxxxxx]
