Default PEQ? Really?

Really? I thought this was pretty cool and is not something that gets on here very often (if at all, not sure on that).

Thoughts? Feedback?

Yeah, really. Other than not something you have seen here before, why do you think that shot belongs pn RP? It's not pleasin to the eye, car cut off, dude with back mostly turned to us, nothing unusual with the location. Maybe if he was putting it on the back of an old caboose or the front of a locomotive, but here, nothing screams at me to look at this shot.

Perhaps you have answered your own question? Putting aside issues of esthetics and so forth, RP is a site with its own preferences. Things that don't get on very often don't do so for a reason, because the site doesn't care for those sorts of shots!

Aside from that, the shot does seem rather snap-shotty. The farther you get away from the basic wedgie, the less snap-shotty you can be and still make RP.

There are a lot of shadows in the image and you cannot see the person's face or a profile.

And, it is not that unusual of a shot.

I do agree with you all, there are lacking items to the picture, to some of you, it may not be unique, I still stand by my comment that I think its cool to see.

Also, I am not being condescending when I say this, you all make good points, but I must have made a good case to an admin because they approved it on appeal, I guess the admins are getting soft.

Again, thanks for all your feedback, it does make me a better photographer.

I'm surprised they didn't hit you with unlevel.

I was too, the car is not on level track there, but I think they looked at the main subject, the worker and saw he was level. Will I complain? No. Is it my favorite photo? No. Is it a little different than what is always being put on here? Yes...

But, like I said: The admins must be getting soft or something...

How can anyone tell when a person is level?
