PEQ For An Old Fashioned Streetcar
 
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...91&key=8928024

Not really sure why it got PEQ. I could see maybe some other rejections, but other interior shots have made it to the site.

For example, a buddy of mine took this one of a VIA Renaissance coach....

FWIW, if you showed me both pictures off RP and told me only one made it to the DB, I would guess that yours made it in, and your friends didn't.

Do you have an horizontal version?

Unfortunately I only grabbed this one shot. There is space upwards, and to the left/right. It was about to leave so I couldnt get any others. Would it be worth it to wait for another screener?

If you're going to do thatjust appeal it. However, I'm not a fan of either shot. Not actually suggesting you do appea.

Those ads up on top are usually quite colorful, as well as the rich colors of the trims. May I ask why you opted for B&W?

I'm with Mathieu on which one would have made it into the DB if I had to choose, whether yours is B&W or color.

Your friend's shot was submitted and accepted waaaaaaay back in June of 2012 and likely would not have been accepted today. Standards have long since changed. :twisted:

I think yours is better captured as well.

In the future - if possible, a few people added, would go a long way.

Maybe - go HORIZONTAL to eliminate all that "extra" floor and emphasize the detail of the windows and chairs.

EMTRailfan - I chose B&W hoping for a sort of old feel, considering this car was from the 1920's. I could retry eventually with the color.

Mitch - I regret not taking a horizontal pic, I just figured that with the 18-55mm, portrait was the better option. I can always go back though :P

If going back is not a problem, I would put this one aside in the "things learned" pile.

I always say that the first time is never the best time. Don't hesitate to revisit shots and try again at later dates. There's a big difference between looking at a photo and being out there taking a photo. Sometimes, there are things you only realize once you looked at your photo, at home.

Maybe?

Quick edit - you can adjust crop up and /or down.
Also - bumped up the contrast:

Ill give that a try! I think I had a bit of room on the sides that I cut out to centre the photo. Ill see what happens.

Thanks,

Bill
