Default My Next PEQ

Group,

Took a long shot on this one and it received what I thought it would--the good old PEQ reject.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=769701996

I went along the lines of the abandoned track shot when I saw this structure and figured I would give it a try.

Does anyone have any constructive ideas etc. on making this work?
Or is it not worth it.

Thanks in advance!

Doesn't really do much for me, I'm sorry! I don't think it is repairable.

Abandoned track shots typically need to be obvious that they are abandoned track shots. There needs to be some railroad element in there. And you probably need to be at track level or above it.

To me, yours looks like it could be any bridge that's falling apart.

My problem is that I didn't know what it was.

I thought it was the base for a water tower or a tank or something.

Abandon shots need to be real obvious for us visual dummies.

The picture is interesting, go put it up on Flickr.

There are a number of appropriate places where you should get some positive comments about it.

That could be someone's back porch, or a piece of a highway bridge, or about 20 other things

Looks like some kind of medieval bondage rack.

Does anyone have the link for medieval bondage rack .net ?
or back porch.net? Don't lie--someone has to have it in the old favorites list!

I want to post this and see if I can't get a screeners choice over there since it bombed here.

I could complete the scene if only I could get a girl in a bikini to stand in there...Top of 24!
