Default Don't you love it when...

...a top 24 shot is obviously unlevel (or for that matter a SC or a PCA is unlevel)?

It must really burn the souls of those who get unlevel rejections when their shots actually LOOK level.

And that's all I have to say about that.

Oh, so that's the official name for my homeland now? Cool, good for it! If only it was candyland in the off-seasons too - I guess that March, April, May, October, November and December are caramel and chocolate themed.

Nope. That's actually when Candyland shows up the most around here.

Jim, that is not the only thing that has me wondering lately! Just look at this photo from today....."come on man"

http://www.railpictures.net/viewphot...356974&nseq=12

How can that gray line going THROUGH the consist be missed and the photo be accepted period? Is my monitor picking up new images not submitted ? I will say the things many of us get shots rejected for even though far less obvious seem to slide for a certain crowd. It begs the question about a double standard and being their site it's not in our control but I am just raising a honest observation of several photos I've seen being accepted. Many here submit shots of how they look in their natural state (a big challenge for those unique spots) and then others manipulate images to look good and to me that is not true way to portray the scenes observed trackside.

How does something like that even happen? Guessing it was some sort of defect from raw conversion, just about has to be

Who knows, but if you look closer you will see a red/green thingie at the rear truck of the lead engine plus the tracks to not line up and a derailment looks imminent .

I actually looked on two computers to make sure it wasn't a glitch here, lol.

I love corrupt files!
At one shoot I did 2 years ago, one of the files became corrupt...and it ended up being one of the coolest shots.
I've attached it for your viewing pleasure.

Someone should e-mail Steve about his gray line. I'd be willing to bet that happened after uploading to RP.

Same here. It was probably just an uploading glitch.

Jim, what are you talking about? Photos on railpics are never unlevel!

Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG
