Dennis, it's more like, "She has a hot body, but-her-face..."

Thanks Jim I make no pretense as an exemplar of the zeitgeist. Your version is much butter.

"The BEST railroad photos on the net" is more of a marketing pitch than reality. If they held to that standard, the rejection rate would be over 90 percent. RP just has a base level standard---and it's really not a high bar. Sure, they accept (or reject) images every day that most of us would have disagreed with. However, I would have accepted this shot as well.

Ron, sorry for the late response, (thought this thread didn't have much life but just logged on to see a surprise) but to me the branch is what your eye catches very quickly and I've had and seen other shots have far less of a distraction from the main focal point of the engines get the boot. To me it's common power with a less than ideal use of the scenery. I think planning the shot around the obstacles and obstructions is part of the challenge and heck we all been track side where hand saws have cleared a shooting lane and many here carry such saws I would imagine. My point of view.

Just bought a 16 ft pole trimmer a couple of weeks ago.
