Why is it in black and white to begin with? It doesn't work in B+W.

He likes it, He likes all his photos but needs to edit in his mind or with his shutter finger. I can remember feeling that way 40 years ago He will too get a eye for what works. We may have to beat him with them for a time tho

How silly of us to worry, apparently you were out getting a life on CD - or is that lady your alleged girlfriend?

Oh well, your back now and with a vengeance so that "get a life" system on CD is obviously a failure.

Be advised, I also took the liberty of swiping your Avatar concept while you were absent cause Mitch was too chicken.

Sorry my friend, but I do have a life besides RP! So I wouldn't go around trying to call someone out again unless facts are known.
As a patron of the site, I am happy to hear a screener made some time to clarify a rejection to a fellow patron of the site who is a regular like myself. While I wouldn't expect it for a good percentage of rejected images, and more usable diverse offering of rejections would save a screener some time, I am pleased to hear it. As others seem to be. It doesn't have to be only negative on the forums.

Just My Two Cents...
Well, it used to be commonplace. Now everyone just gets to tear their hair out over rejections because it is next to impossible to solicit a comment from a screener.

I think *most* people who submit here know when they're submitting something marginal and are just seeing if they can sneak it in. On the other hand, when something gets rejected for something very subjective or subtle (ie., may not be very obvious) a simple comment can really help.

The photo just looks like it was taken from too far away. Too much zoom. The NS OCS train has been photographed so often that they are only going to accept the best of the best when it comes to that train.
