Default And yes, size does matter !!!

And yes, size does matter !!!

The shot below has been rejected due to an incorrect size.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...03&key=7802060

Looking at the picture, the dimension of the photo (1200 x 890) is within the specified size specifications (1200 x 800-900 pixels).

I had a quick look at the pictures that have been accepted recently and have found the following:

1200 x 727 pixels - ACCEPTED to the database

1200 x 915 pixels - ACCEPTED to the database

1200 x 918 pixels - ACCEPTED to the database

Image © Nico McBrain
PhotoID: 555053
Photograph © Nico McBrain

1200 x 946 pixels - ACCEPTED to the database

and the winner is:

PhotoID: 554928
Photograph © Marty Bernard

1200 x 968 pixels - ACCEPTED to the database

Certainly my photo was not old enough, not artistic enough and not creative enough compared to the accepted ones. Oh I also forgot to mention, it has been shot outside of the USA !

Looks like a mistake. I'd say they clicked on the wrong button but I don't see anything else wrong with it! Very nicely done, excellent!

Nice cheeks........OH MY, there's a steam engine in that shot! Cool! Daniel, please warn everyone before you submit this again. Even Georg Trub won't be able to link his way past this one.

Seriously though, I regularly use the 3:5 crop and I have a lot of images on this site with those proportions. There are MANY times when a scene has a clear, blue sky, and there is just no reason to make that 400+ pixels high.

I am just guessing that they busted this one for more than just the pixel dimensions.

And if you really believe the Foreign prejudice then use it to your advantage.
Provide the viewers with some information, a teachable moments as was once noted.
Look at the detail presented in the now infamous Russian Steam photo.
What ever one may think about that post there was a good story presented.

Yeah, going THERE right now would not be a great idea, unless you want to get to know the FBI, Homeland Security, TSA, etc, etc.

Are you new to the Forums, Bob?

Foreign images do get a bit more extra scrutiny. Just as older nostalgic images get a little less. Daniel has made his case in the past with routine.
Though... often it's a consistency issue rather then a bias.

As for "Good Story" - ask those of us who use to post "good stories" prior to getting an image accepted, it likely has no bearing on acceptance. We've been told all to often, RP is for "photos", not for stories - though I assume the value to a good story varies from screener to screener, day to day.

Daniel - I'd appeal - state those examples. Let's see if J is being to generous in regards to screener consistency. Sorry, admin - but can you not see how aggravating such a rejection can be?

"Too"

Just ruined it for the spell check /grammar police among us.

What is it about the Forums and leaving comments under photos that throws our game off around here?

That was not my intent. In fact, when I see something like this, maybe not my first thought but an early thought is screener button error - I wonder how often that really happens compared to how often some of us invoke the idea - but that usually means there is something else clearly wrong with the shot or, put better, likely RP-wrong with the shot. In this case, there is nothing wrong at all in any conceivable RP-screener-relevant or any other dimension. So it is particularly odd.

Janusz,

It must have been a screener button error. I have appealed, and it is in now.

You know there is an "edit message" feature, right?
