That is if it's even real snow.

Not RP photos, but on the subject of purple snow, I couldn't help but marvel at the differences between these two shots taken four minutes apart.

Yup, it's too bad when quantity is priority over QUALITY. What makes it so maddening is the fact that good quality shots are NOT making the cut and off colored, grainy, noisy, unlevel and so on shots are and you wonder why people just have their fill and walk away from such roller coaster standards, IMO.

It's interesting that the excess red shot got Explored with 34,000 views while the more accurate one has just 144 views.

We have acid rain down here and it looks like you have some of the "Northern Lights" bottled up in that snow!

It's not. It's a middle bell curve shot that was cooked in editing. I'd be embarrassed to have that photo seen by 9000 people. I'm sure the facebook legion of back patters just lap it up though.

Did anyone notice that the same photographer upload two photos that are almost identical and got a 'screeners choice" for both. I guess that can be called consistency !

Mike often posts here. Maybe he'll see this.

Mike is a good photographer, I would normally give him the benefit of the doubt, and he did submit them a year and a half apart...

This thread is about calling out shitty photos also, not nitpicking people's posting habits

Without quoting the two images again, I agree about Mikes photos but the name of the thread is "What were they thinking.", ie screeners, so this fits. I see sequence shots or shots of a very similar train at the same location all the time, they just don't get screener choice.

Anyway, I think the screeners choice is pretty stuck on a similar type of landscape, throw in a few backlite landscapes and some nice steam shots and that is a very high percentage. They are very good but looking for more variety. Of course once in a while a people photo sneaks in too.

Yes, I did know that I already posted a photo of this particular train in Sheep Canyon, but as Troy noted, the submissions were a year and a half apart. Plenty of locations get a lot of imagery posted, but Wyoming’s Sheep Canyon is not one of them. I thought the new image was different enough to warrant sharing, but perhaps I was wrong.

The photos are taken moments apart, but with two different camera bodies. The first one is a 17mm, while the recent one is a wider view at 10mm. I apologize if seeing this place again offends anyone—I just thought people might enjoy seeing what more of the canyon scenery looks like.

I think the time between posting is sufficient, and I can't say I remember seeing the first image when it was posted. It is a good shot regardless, but the fact that both got the screeners choice is questionable while there are plenty of other submissions that could be deserving of it that get passed by. But that's nothing the photographer has control over, it's on the screeners for picking such a similar photo again.

Possibly not the same screener anyway and only a small subset of viewers will remember but still think it was interesting enough to note.

My apologies. My initial post was poorly worded. I enjoyed looking at both photos (I enjoy looking at all your photos). There is SO much complaining about screener inconsistency, and I was noting these photos as a positive example of screener conistency. Two very similar photos were uploaded over a year apart and both received a screeners choice Both deserved it.

No apology necessary. I just wanted to explain why I thought the image was different enough from the early one that I chose to post it.
