Default Another PEQ

Ok so this one unlike my other I'd like to try and get on here. If need be even re-shot it next time I have the oppurtunity but I think a shot of the cab of a locomotive that was built in 1910 and still functions is something that could be a very unique shot apparently I failed to capture it right any and all advice on fixing or re-shotting this one would be greatly appreciated.

I'm personally not a huge fan of the blue tint... Other than that, I don't know why it got a PEQ.

Screener roulette? Some of them seem to go for in the cab shots, some don't.

It looks like a grab shot. Granted, I'm generally not big on cab shots, but there doesn't seem to be a focus to this shot. What am I looking at and why should I care? Also, the best cab shots, especially steam cab shots, always have someone actually in the cab, iMO.

Maybe this was the "trespassing" version of the PEQ?

Agreed. This shot is trying to split the difference between a firebox door shot, a shot facing the firebox where the door is the center of attention, and a shot from the view of the engineer or from near the engineer's seat, focusing on the arrangement of controls. This shot does neither. Distracting blown out window view a negative bonus. PEQ in my book, easy.

Where does the blue tint come from?

By all means reshoot, a good subject; take more pains, please, to get a good composition out of it.
