Well its not a PEQ yet....
Since it didnt get PEQ rather bad cropping instead, I figure id get some feedback on this shot, thoughts?

Frankly the plain curve isn't particularly interesting as a subject for a shot, and there is evidence of the harsh light of high sun. There may not have been a way to make the switch area the focus zone, but if so that would have been much more interesting.

If it can get in, then it will do so, I suspect, if you crop off the bottom, which is way overemphasized (because plain uninteresting rail, with strong railhead shadows).

I'd just try again, YMMV.

I wouldnt be surprised if you got a heat distortion rejection. I dont think something like this would get on

I think Troy is right. I actually think there is a Heat Distortion rejectio. Bt J. is right too regarding the cropping.

The heat distortion is obviously intentional, but I see what J is saying about the cropping, was just trying something new since ive done every damn shot in Athens.

That is fine and encouraged. Just realize that just because it is new, doesn't necessarily always mean that it worked. Just like it took us multiple attempts to get that first one on, it will take multiple attempts to get that first one from outside the box on RP too. Although, we have a better understanding of RP, so that is a plus.

Maybe with no heat distortion can make it, I have recently submitted a similar shot, adviced by JimThias


Nice shot anyway!
