Ahhh, you have noticed the most photographed railway bridge in Thailand. I noticed that they are in a couple different categories for the same subject but they are actually 4 different pics. Close examination of the background (a building to the left with a red roof) is in a different relative position and the trees on the right of the bridge are also in different relative positions. They are not the same pic.

I do however think they are similar and it beats me how so many pics of this railway bridge by so many different togs consistently score high. (If I was into conspiracy theories I would be suggesting some sort of collusion, but that wouldn't happen here in Pixoto, would it?).

I am sure it's a good railway bridge and does it's job very well and it's photographed well by the many that have taken it's picture.

I have seen many of the world's great bridges photographed very well, London Bridge, Golden Gate, Sydney Harbour etc. but none seem to have the score attracting ability of this humble railway bridge from Thailand.

First of all, I want to thank you Sir Mark Zouroudis for looking at my bridges and for explaining it here in the community. Next is to share my explanation. As you know, I'm just a foreigner in this country and this is the first time to see a beautiful location of a railway and this kind of bridge. So, I grab this opportunity to capture this bridge in different angles, in different times, in different days, in different weathers and alone without any other photographer. This is the foreigners do, if they go to different countries, to grab the opportunities to capture a building or other things in different angles, in different times, in different days, in different weathers. Because you don't know when you can comeback again to that country. And I don't want to stick to only one category because I want to learn more in photography. Sir, I don't want to argue with them or to explain more how I photograph this bridge. And I want to thank you again for explaining it to Sir Augie Juliano. Everybody has the right to capture this bridge and compete it to the other bridges and railways. Its the voters and the photographers who will decide the best photo. More power to our photography and please continue helping me and reminding me if I have problems with my photos and photography.

Its been seen before and reported....apprantley there's a camera club all shooting the same things. Why they can't be original and shoot something else is beyond me.,
Also you'll see it a lot because its deleted and resubmitted on a regular basis....

Ronnel, I don't know who your trying to kid here, your pics of this bridge go back over 12 months. I would have thought the novelty of taking pics of this bridge would have worn off by now.

If you truely want some advise to improve your photography how about going out and taking pics of things that you have never taken before. Do it alone and learn what looks good in the frame of your camera. Don't let others tell you, work it out for yourself.

You have mastered Lotus, railway bridges and temples, there is more things to photograph in the world.

Sir Augie Juliano, I used raw files. And just the clarity, vibrance, saturation, temperature and contrast that I adjust. And I hope you can do like that too, to your photos. I hope this could help you. More power to our photography. Let us not argue but help one another.

My sister recently came back from Thailand and has more variety in her pics in the 2 weeks that she was there.

Unfortunately she doesn't want to compete with her pic and wont show them here.

Augie - one of the images you posted from Ronnel above is somewhat on the line of being too similar. And if we saw many that were that close we would remove it. However taking photos of the same subject at different times and different conditions is allowed on Pixoto. In fact - may photographers specialize on a certain type of photography and certain subjects. I tend to think that his is OK and don't feel we should judge them for doing so. Some people like variety - but specialization has its merits too.

Keep in mind that only 5% of the images Ronnel has submitted are of that bridge. And only one pair is even close to being "very similar".

I hope this helps.
