Dude, just give it the fuck up. If you want Railpictures.net to accept your photos go out to Cajon and shoot some roster shots, that's all they're interested in. They say it right there on the email, " Bad Motive: This rejection reason means that the photo is of low esthetic qualities, or is simply not the type of material we are wishing to publish..". They're not rejecting your photo for any reason other than that they don't enjoy electrically powered transit in ways most of the folks on this board would. There's nothing wrong with your photo, their cup of tea just happens to be identical shots of diesel powered freight trains and they're quite unwilling to compromise on that point. Instead of trying to get your photo into there, send it to Trevor at Transitalk or Dave at NYCsubway.org.

Besides, why would you want your pictures on a popup-laden site anyway? You recieve none of the ad revenue which they're getting off your picture.

That said a few Subchatters have gotten photos of electric transit accepted by the Railpictures.net screeners. RPansePCC and R7 Torresdale Express in particular have had success getting transit related photos through to the board. If you want, keep appealing and hope that your photo gets on there. I don't see what the big deal is, since their site sucks anyway. Just please stop bitching, you're not the only photographer on the west coast, nor are you the best, and it's really annoying to have to listen to you gripe and moan every time Railpictures.net rejects you.
