I'm starting to see a lot of waterscape images (that happen to have a small boat in them) showing up in the transportation section. Some really great shots, but it's really hard to compete when those awesome waterscapes are in the section.

Please keep reporting them and we'll move them out.

Thanks Jason, I've been calling them out the past week (using the reporting tool) and I see them remain and defeating proper transportation items.

Any help here would be great!

Thanks,

Mark

Hi Jason,
Here is the one from yesterday that I reported and no luck. Again, this is really an awesome shot - but it's a waterscape.
Thanks!
Mark

I am also seeing a similar issue in City, Street, and Park. In my view, this scene is more a landscape that a park -

I have reported several of these, but they seem to remain. What is your feeling - is a park any open piece of ground in both urban and rural settings, or should it be a Urban setting as the name "City Park" suggests?

this is getting silly, will you be moving planes out as well because they have clouds in them or trains running through woodlands and across fields and medows.

if its a boat its transport surelly, !

i know this is a simplistic aproach, but we all have problems in the categories sunsets are apearing everywhere water drops are popping up a lot and similar images and repeats are riffe ?

So be it, if those are the rules.

I was hoping to find a better solution before I started competing in the same way - and just becoming part of the problem.

I can play the game that way, I just thought it would have been better if the guideline was:
- the primary element in the image should be transportation related
- water, sky, sun, clouds grass, etc are secondary items

Most of my waterscapes have boats in them and many of my landscapes have farm tractors somewhere in the shot. I just think it's a shame I will have to put those shots in transportation just to remain competitive.
