Yeah I remembered those reminders FYI, you don’t need to shout at me for not using them. If you want to shout at me, that’s all on you buddy, but it’s nature’s fault for putting that tree and I got hedges beside when I took it. 

Yes I know how, I’ve been taking photos on my phone since the first day I got it. Though if it ain’t to y’all standards, so be it. Everyone takes different photos at different qualities, everything can’t be perfect 

Dude, everyone’s been perfectly decent with you here. You’re the one who insists on posting subpar material. 

If there’s a tree, move over or find another spot. If you have something genuinely good to post, then put it up here. But use some common sense. A blurry, off center cut off photo isn’t gonna cut it. Maybe it’s time to actually start listening and looking at what other people post and try to come up with something similar.

Don’t trash a perfectly good thread because you didn’t bother to put any effort into your work.

 I have an IPhone so stop hating on it.

I have an IPhone and I take pictures way better, also I usually use a Camera instead of a Phone for pictures. The work way better.

It doesn't have a bike rack most likely because that bus has been recently refurbished. I think it may have fallen through the cracks.

This is my first time submitting a pic to this thread so please don't hate on it too much.

It’s LFS HEV. That’s the hybrid bus, not the diesel. It’s also clearly stated near the front door, “Hybrid Electric”, can’t miss it.

Who cares?  It’s still an LFS whether it’s a diesel or hybrid-electric.  “LFS HEV” is being more specific to the fuel/drivetrain system.

I love to flex on people who only use their phones but I have to admit, they are getting really good.

Same. Sometimes, I just go fanning with my Huawei P20. Hulling a camera all day, even a mirrorless, gets very tiring.

You can tell the quality difference though, except with ultra high end phones. Plus, Huawei post-processing is really terrible.

Guidelines:

  • Vehicle should occupy the majority of the frame, be centered in the photo, and be the main focus.
  • The photo should preferably show the entire front and one side of the vehicle or the entire rear and one side of the vehicle if a photo that shows the front is already available. Photos showing side detail are also permitted as long as the vehicle is centered in the shot
  • Photos taken in sunlight should have both viewed sides of the vehicle in direct sunlight when possible, or minimal shadows that do not interfere with the viewing of the vehicle details.
  • The entire vehicle should be visible, i.e. not cut off by the edge of the photograph, or be partially obstructed by objects.
  • Watermarks are permitted, but should be minimal and not detract from the photo.
  • Pictures should be of good quality, i.e. no blurring or low pixelation.
  • Photos of retired or otherwise very rare buses are exempt from the guidelines above if no better quality photos exist and/or have been uploaded.
