Default What do you think?

Worth an appeal or does the pole kill it?

I know it's in the middle, but I went with that crop to get the engine in the corner and the smoke throughout the shot. Then again, it is a PEQ.

PEQ is usually the end-all-hope rejection. I like the idea, but it looks 100% backlit as well. It's a good one for the personal collection.

It was 1:00 high sun. Thats what I thought it would get dinged for if anything.

Just me the smoke I think maybe too much as well (I like i tho) but the screeners more or less like to see the train better.

FWIW I like the idea and think a more head on view of the engine (imagine the engine in the left third) and the smoke blowing over to the right could work, although the lighting is all wrong (high sun) and looks like too much shadows / highlights has been used. Also maybe try it in B+W with more contrast?

It's not that the shot is full of smoke, it is that the shot is full of uninteresting smoke. For one, the pole splits the frame harshly, and the right side is just a big empty nothing. I probably would still not be a fan of the shot, but you really ought to try a vertical with the pole being near the right edge.

If you had some interesting light then it could have been cool but the shot isnt very interesting to look at the way it is.

That pole in the middle absolutely kills it for me.
