Default Irony of a Rejection

I had this one rejected last night. https://www.railpictures.net/viewrej...12&key=8445144

Looking at it on a better monitor, I can see some things that would be cause for a different rejection. No big deal.

The "This rejection means that the photo is of low aesthetic qualities, does not contain enough rail-related content, or is simply not the type of material we wish to publish." doesn't sit with me. We?!? Only one person is screening. Where's the "we" part? Call a spade a spade and replace "we" with "the screener". Just a suggestion.

Appeal it!

That way when the appeal is rejected, the 'We' becomes applicable.

I cringe when I get that rejection. A really dis of a rejection. Even if it is warranted, not the type of phrasing I think you want to use with contributors and customers. I mean for no direct compensation we support the site so no need to be caustic.

That being said I am not sure what happened to this image, taken with quality equipment and a quick look and your others look great. Specks in the sky, mottled sky, saturation?. I see very little photos of this type, MOW equipment and not even manned, so a very uphill battle to begin with.

RP has never really seemed to be one for accepting photos of MOW equipment in my experience.

As someone who generally likes to see photos from the engineering side of things, this shot amounts to little more than a photo of a stop sign with a parked ballast regulator beside it and doesn't convey much interest. Saturation is heavy and there's something funky going on with the sky as well.
