Thumbs down Similar To Previous Photo? Seriously?

Had this pointless rejection quite a few times now... Compare these 2 photos... How the hell are they similar? I took mine on a different angle and it was zoomed in more using a telephoto lens. Am I missing something? lol

Why are you submitting 2 shots of the same scene?

I wasn't submitting two shots of the same scene. The links I provided is one of my rejected photo, and one of a friends photo who's got on.

Oh, didnt see it was from different photographers. Maybe next time wait a few coordinate your submissions? I don't know. I guess mostly railfanning alone has it's benefits, this is one of them.

I had a topic like this posted before, one of the members in the topic told me to wait I think about 4 weeks or something like that before resubmitting. I'm not sure if that would work though.

Definitely should have waited a few weeks. Also, the processing on yours looks really blah compared to your friend's image. I'd try to process yours so it looks closer to his, which has a much warmer feeling to it.

The STP rejection is probably the most frustrating one on the list, particularly for those of us who do charters, where it is likely that there will be multiple views of the same scene.

My advice is similar to Troy's. If the other shot belongs to someone you shoot with, coordinate who will submit what and when. Each of you may have to hold a shot or two for a while, in order to get your versions on. Submitting both at the same time or within a day or two at the same time of day just about guarantees an STP. Hold it and submit in 6 months.

You might want to take a look at a histogram. I don't have one handy at the moment, but the sky in your shot looks overexposed. The Screener who looked at your shot and your buddy's may have decided that he liked the wider composition and a little more detail in the sky. STP might just have been a convenient excuse to say no. Just a guess.

I think it went like "wait some period of time before SUBMITTING. Now that they got you for that rejection, they may not ever accept it. Who knows... maybe join Dan's group and ask him his thoughts.

Thanks all. Troy, I'm not really a big fan of Dan.. he needs to get a life. period. I'm not like him, or never want to be like him. He's been saying a lot of things about our photos here that are completely wrong because he probably can't get a photo on RP himself. I stay away from stuff like that.

Mike, I don't know what you did to your photo in processing, but look in between the rails of the siding. The accepted shot has some sort of blackish material with a tinge of blue. Some sort of barrier material? Because of oil dripping? Your shot is strongly blue there.

The alternate screener.

There is the usual way.

There is the appeal; and

Then there is Dan.

But are you faster than Chase?

I hear he uploads to RP strait from his memory card - at least that is what Dan says.

I never upload a photo I've taken alongside a person I know is also a RP contributor. Normally, I only shoot all by my lonesome anyway.

I just look at the Site to see of someone uploaded before me.

However, most of the people I shoot with have their own unique style as do I, therefore our shots look quite different.

I actually think I've only shot with fellow RP contributors twice. On one shoot, I asked Doyle Massey if he minded if I uploaded a shot from the shoot because I pretty much used him for his strobe flash AND a remote for my camera.

I still feel kinda cheap about that.

I hope so too. Way to get three identical shots on (with the exception of the cheap B&W attempt).

Clearly they aren't similar; your shot was taken in Kinnear and Billster's was taken in Hamilton. Two photos taken of the same two engines in two different places can't possibly be similar!

That's exactly what it is, keeps the soil underneath from being contaminated as locomotives will sit there for days at a time, basically it's a locomotive tie up track.

I saw both shots but didnt think they were that similar. Now that you put them side by side, they pretty much identical, with the exception of a bit more/less contrast (and some other slight adjustments). Surprised the 2nd got accepted right away, just because they are basically the same......
