Default No more open doors!!

This evening I had two perfectly lit photos rejected because the front door on the engine was wide open. I guess we will have to put the cameras away on hot days now too. Wonderful.

Normally when I get rejected for a ridiculous reason I'll appeal it and then that's the last of it. But this is just crazy!!

The first shot is of a CN GP40-2, one of only about 40 left. It was like 90 degrees out.

Has anybody else had this, or am I the only lucky one who got to have a good laugh tonight?

Your appeal for photo id 564650 has been processed and has been rejected.
Admin Comments >> The open door is VERY distracting.

I think you're the lucky one Tim. Maybe they just don't like your shots without mountains

The first one it may be a distraction, but I don't find the second one that bad. But then I'm used to seeing them run by like that.

There was no way this door was going to shut. If you look to the right of the unit, they've got it jammed open with a monkey wrench!

...and funnily enough, a shot accepted after the first two rejections has two engines with BOTH of their doors open!!

Tim, I'll give a shout out to all the CN crews out here and out west to have all locomotive doors closed for you when they see you out there shooting, plus I'll give my personal contact from CP a shout to have all train crews open their doors so Matthew Hicks won't get anymore head end CP shots on RP.

Photoshop it closed! But don't tell the screeners. At least then you won't be able to say anything about MY photos being manipulated!
