Default This rejection is for the birds!

Literally, lol

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=183342

Bad Motive: This rejection reason means that the photo is of low esthetic
qualities, or is simply not the type of material we are wishing to publish.
Guess the pic sucks worse than a hoover.

I think it'd have a chance if the birds weren't on the engine.

No-not at all. I think it's a most interesting shot-something I've never seen in years of railfanning!

That's a very cool photo.How close were the birds to the engine?

It almost looks like the birds want to land on the engine, or even fly into the cab since the cab door is open.

Nice shot, Brian. The only thing I can think of is the nose is a tad backlit. I'd appeal.

I like it, who cares about backlit... I often see the odd seagul or raven on a cube but never that many loco's on a bird! Nice catch!
