Default Peq - q

I haven't had too many PEQ rejections. Does an open nose door qualify as a PEQ? Just curious.

I'm really surprised this got a PEQ rejection. I would think a Bad cropping reason would have been more appropriate. This guy is confused...

Bad cropping for the trailing train cutoff, so, yes, the PEQ must be for an open door. Such a pretty unit, I guess that is what they mean.

Seriously? The screener must have hit the wrong button. Otherwise this website is really getting depressing.

I have a photo that made it on first shot with two open nose doors....

http://www.railpictures.net/viewphot...393230&nseq=18

maybe because of the surroundings? I'm not sure.

Probably a mistake on the other end.

On that unit, in that context, yeah, I think it is a deal breaker. This unit just came out, all brand new and shiny, and the best railroad photos on the net is probably not going to think this is showcasing it properly.

This is crazy talk. It's an open door. I could se rejecting it maybe if it was a straight on nose shot maybe. But not this. Now I do see other issues with the shot. I think it's slightly over exposed and perhaps the cropping isn't spot on, but PEQ for an open door is poppycock IMHO.

On the other hand, you have three other shots of this unit in, all of which are better than the PEQ'ed shot. If this shot was submitted after those, that could be why it got canned for PEQ.

No, I don't think he did, there's some cropping issues and probably the next button would of been similar to previous since he has an accepted shot that is almost identical to the PEQ except it's shot at lower angle. (along with a top 24 shot and two others of the same train)
And as far as the open door being the reason for the PEQ, I don't think so, open doors give character to the photo (just my opinion)

Thanks for the comments. It doesn't many any difference to me if the shot gets on. I just thought the door was a strange reason for a PEQ. Actually it was a little funny to me since except for the door being open, this was my favorite shot of the chase. Different strokes for different folks.

@ Chase - I had to look at your photo three times before I got it. Great humor!!!

@ Bill - Like your "J" shot. Not sure why but open doors on standard cab units never bothered me but I can't stand seeing them on a wide cab.

Thanks again,
Rich

Standard cab vs. widecab, that is the kicker. An open door on a widecab usually involves a broken RR logo on the nose.

To be honest, I've seen a lot more poppycock in the world of rejections than an open door. Haven't you? I think this door is a particular distraction in this frame, akin to a dust spot or foreground obstruction. I realize open doors are part of railroading, but as you have noted and we have seen, there are a lot of other shots of this same unit, so in context with that and along with the distracting nature (IMO) of the door in this shot, I think I'm not all that "crazy".

Open nose door rejections are nothing new. Sure, some will be accepted here and there, but RP's been fairly consistent with their OND rejections over the years...
