Success on RailPictures!

I'm not sure why I think this is newsworthy, but I have two more photos on

I'm up to 23 pictures... 2 more to become a "real" photographer. ;)

Persistence pays off sometimes. I made 3 submissions of the bridge shot - one was rejected with "horizon unlevel", so I over-corrected the other way to get another "horizon unlevel" rejection. A few people in the forums suggested I try a shot where the power was emerging from the bridge, and I did that with a truly level shot and it was accepted. I guess that's my recommendation - keep trying. Of course, some shots just aren't going to be accepted no matter how much you fiddle with them.
