Default NO DOGS ALLOWED! Cute puppy needs a good home...

I'm homeless. Unwanted. Rejected. Reduced to living under coal cars. I guess I just don't have enough appeal for some folks.

I hear the folks at Flickr run a "no-kill" shelter. Maybe life there will be better for me.

Oh, and the appeal rejection arrived in the inbox before the initial rejection notice. Nothing suspicious about that, right?

I like the idea, but I'm not in love with your compositional setup.

Shot several angles, but not all worked due to the difficulty of shooting a black pup in deep shade on Kodachrome. Actually, I was lucky the pup didn't run away!

Do you have one in which it's shot from a lower POV?

I certainly admire the effort. My size (6'6", 285lb) usually causes everything to run before I get a shot

My favorite below, except no eye contact and sketchy resolution of pup's face on HS Ektachrome:

That's a really photogenic dog.

Correct. Nothing suspicious there. RP e-mails are notorious for being erratic and inconsistent. I have had PCAs for which I received a notice. I also have some for which there was never any notice. Sometimes, I get comment notices on photos before the acceptance e-mail for that same photo arrives.

I would not read anything into that at all.

Still, an appeal "processed" in not days, not hours, but minutes must be close to a record.

I'm betting I'm not high on the "preferred contributor" list down in the bunker!

Not a fan, myself, however - I just see impending danger. I know someone
that lost a pet in a similar fashion. I'd have chased the dog away.

Well, it wasn't my dog. It was a hot July day, so I assume the rail was the coolest object around. No locomotives around, so the pup was not in immediate danger. I shooed pup away, but who knows about the next day?
Pup would be 44 today!

Needs loads of contrast or something. I know it was shot on film but there is nothing to show that this is old and shot on film.

I dunno, I am personally fine with a PAQ on this one.

Actually, there is. The oily grime buildup on the wheel was characteristic of friction-bearing trucks.

True, but do you really think a screener is going to notice that and think "Oh, it's old, so it gets on by default." ?

Nope! Just throwing in a bit of RR trivia that younger fans might not know. Timken made this a selling point in their ads- less oil reaching the rails from the journal boxes.

The screeners had the photo date to look at, of course.

And some older fans, too.
