Default Bad angle. WOW! That's a new one!

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...44&key=9296747

The point of the picture was to show how much older motive power UP laid up during the recession. My estimate, there are more than 200 locomotives here. A high angle from the side was the only way to show how far the line stretched. I can't think of another way to make the shot short of renting an aircraft. Interesting, I think, but I get dinged for "bad angle."

Rant over.

Looks like your lens was dirty, curious, why did you include the ugly shadow and not zoom in more?

wow, thats a really bad picture. do you look at the other pictures on this website, then think that your photo, taken sideways with a smudged lens and bad lighting, is as good as others uploaded?

It does look like a bad angle. The composition is a bit awkward. It's a bit unlevel as well.

You're right. Bad judgment on my part.

Rejection is spot on.

Should have tacked on overexposed, distracting shadows, probably unlevel and a few other I forgot about.
