Default Peq?

I'm thinking that for RP's purposes, this has PEQ written all over it, eh?

Joe, I like the shot, but am uncertain as to whether or not it would be accepted. Obviously, the best way to tell is to submit, as PEQ's are rather unpredictable.

I think the color is off. It's too "orange". I'd bring down the saturation a bit.

In my opinion this does not stand a chance. It doesn't say railroad enough.

I'm not a screener (although I play one on TV)... so I'm not going to say that I know... but my guess is that it's not railroad enough.

That's worth a public acknowledgement - LOL!
(I've heard it before, but it's been so long, it's funny again)

Joe, as for your image, I agree with what's been said - not enough railroad and a bit oversaturated. Needs more cowbell.

As-is, I think a no-go. Can you go back and hopefully those axles still be there so you can get a little more up close and personal with them? Maybe still have that domed structure in the B/G.

If stored axle sets can get on, surely archeological finds like yours can.

If I can get a photograph of horsepower droppings accepted, surely RP can at least consider some crusty wheels! Give it a try with an amusing caption, appeal the inevitable PEQ rejection and see if CK likes it enough to let it in. After all, the image isn't a blurry, underexposed, noisy, poorly-composed shot taken with a six-year-old point-and-shoot, is it?
