I consider this a somewhat unique image. Thinking about it, a rejection that really...... Obviously intent was to show extent of cut not to place plow in a set location.

Works for me - and certainly a unique image.

I'd appeal - note the take you were after and note as well, the subject actually is set in the first third of the composition.

I assume the all blue and somewhat dull blue sky is an issue - a King's ransom for some interesting clouds. If the appeal does not work, perhaps try a submission or two with a tighter crop that cuts out more of the sky - though I do like the balance as is which seems to beg keeping even in crops.

Good luck!

Everything appears to be leaning to the left except the silo in the extreme distance.

I honestly don't think they will accept it. Is it worth "spending" an appeal on?

Definitely needs some leveling work. Did you temp fate and walk any closer? I think having even just a peek of the track in the snow cut would benefit the composition.

Ok, the original intent was I posted it directly after the head on shot and noted in remarks it was to tie in as a followup. I have to admit on its own, just a pile of snow with the plow a little too far off.

I walked in with a friend along the ROW and then I walked over as I was concerned the power might show back up, as it was he had to climb up the plow. Very cold and snow would get very deep so at 60 that was tempting fate. Friend had a scarf wrapped to filter out the cold air, I left my mask in the car.

One of those where it is hard to separate the experience from the photo.

I wonder how far they had to go for more power.
Are any rotaries available in that region?

[Trivia: just googled Kief ND- it's considered a ghost town]

I think they went to Drake which was on the mainline, not that far. I know some of the line they dug out with dozers.
