Railpictures.net Challenge Part Trois

Unread postby ~Z~ » Sat Jan 30, 2016 11:26 pm

Railohio started this contest for himself back in July 2009, we hopped on the bandwagon and started this in July as well, see this thread: http://railroadfan.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=14042

Then we did Challenge Part Deux in March 2011: http://railroadfan.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=20411

The goal is for each photographer who is sending them shots to try to get one picture accepted every single day(midnight-11:59pm) of February. Be sure to submit earlier in the day as we know they don't always touch their queues at night. If you get one rejected, keep trying until one sneaks through for the day. Just reply to this thread if you are in, and then as you get your photos accepted, just do what Aleks did last time and keep editing your post to include your new pics: http://railroadfan.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=14042#p100614

Even if you miss a day, try to keep along and double up if need be. Interesting if we can actually get someone to get a photo accepted every single day during February. Aleks and I were able to make it all the way through last time. Remember, the photo submitted can be taken any day, not just during the month of February.

There's no real prize or anything, just nice to see what some of you guys have sitting on your backlog of photos.

Figured as much. I just wanted you to admit it. TRESPASSER!! :lol: :P

Nothing to do with grammar. Simply a fat-finger mistake while typing and I didn't catch it before and after submitting. I'd thank you for bringing it to my attention, but while submitting day 3's photo, I noticed the error and corrected it before coming to this thread and reading your post. :D
