    I'm curious why the Dodger's Spring Training photo didn't make the cut, even for the original slideshow. It's an excellent shot.

    Thanks for your great photos, Luis.

    Kevin,

    these days, images don't make the cut primarily because of space restrictions. there just aren't enough pages. moreover, the times website isn't well suited for so-called "stand alone" photos. more often than not, an image has to be attached to a story. just as with the paper, edits for online galleries have a certain amount of editor subjectivity. simply put, we shoot a lot on assignment and some images will make the cut and some won't. thus, the impetus for outtakes. thanks for your interest.
