Default Submittal question?

This one has me interested, not sure if I've tried it or someone else has.

But can we submit a photo of a train minus the power? I took some shots of the RBBX train in Cajon Pass today and like the shots of the cars minus the engines. Is it possible?

If the composition and lighting are good, then definitely yes

I don't think he means roster shots chase. Dave, looking through Brandon Smiths shots again, this one comes to mind.

I say go for it! I'm actually thinking of doing the same thing with a shot from yesterday or just try a reshoot. There are more examples than those posted so in the right ligthing, setting, etc. they are accepted here.

So the circus train may definitely be worth a try!

Good luck,
