Default Improvements on a PEQ?

Guys,

Any idea why this was nabbed for PEQ? Worthy of an appeal or not really worth it?

The blue sky mast is not right, there's no train in sight and there's only weak light.




I would not cash any appeal chit's with this one.

I can be blunt like Troy since you have many excellent shots here Chase.

Dennis,

No problem with being blunt! No need in beating around the bush!

A streaking train knocking down the signal from green to red would've been nice, but CSX decided not to run anything.

Needs a train, preferably a SD60.

That's why God created time. So you can go back and reshoot and not waste the screeners time with more trainless crossing or sognal shots.

I hate sognal shots.

Unless, ofcourse, there is an SD60.

Sognal sounds like a distant relative of eggnog, but bad....

Not everything you take needs to be on RP Chase...

Fight the urge to ruin a pretty decent portfolio, with crap.

Why do you feel the need to make every night shot look like its a cloudy day?

It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

It isn't a night shot.

Chase, that Loyd character beat me to it again. This shot only hurts your port. The lighting, angle, crop, scene, do nothing for this photo. A train in this photo wouldn't help any either especially if it was a streak shot.

Thanks guys! The only thing at the time that I found of interest was the foliage and I figured that was enough..

Now looking at it today, I do find it dull and lacking a real exciting subject.

The image does not show the foliage well and there seems to be a reddish hue to it.

You can do better - I have seen it.
