Default How come I can't get a shot like this accepted?

Is it really that 'PEQish'? I tried a similar shot a few weeks ago to the same result. I have many different angles but I don't think that matters.

I thought I stood a decent chance since Dave Schauer got this shot on recently.

I like yours better. I'm going to diagnose this one with Screener Roulette Syndrome.

CSX1702 hit it on the head - although it even goes beyond that to what screener A likes on Tuesday he may not like on Wednesday. It's an issue with really all detail and stationary object shots.

Im going to disagree, all I see if your shot is a bunch of stuff, I cant really tell if im in a loco or a HVAC system. The other shot atleast I can easily see the site of the prime mover, maybe something more focused on an easily identifiable part would be good. Neither are really my cup of tea though.

No. It's easy to tell it's a locomotive.

I'm not mechanically inclined but I believe that's a huge locomotive turbo in the reject.

I'm gonna disagree with both of you. To the untrained eye, you dont know if that is a locomotive, a ship, a basement generator...

It's an engine of some kind. If I were a screener, I would have rejected them both

But since one got on, I have no idea why yours didnt, screener roulette

I agree with Troy. Could be any engine room. Maybe one in the basement of a building.

Lightbulb They Don't Like You.

Ya'all forgot the most important and most obvious reason - perhaps the screener just doesn't like you.

I would have many more shots on here I believe, except for the fact that at least one, and perhaps a few other screeners just don't like me.

I am not sure what I have done over the years and I have never met any of the screeners in person, but I am quite sure that their dislike for me is what keeps a number of my submitted images from becoming part of the data base.

So I'm not the only one who feels paranoid sometimes.

How could you not be paranoid around here? I think that's the whole point! LOL.

You know how it's really easy to tell its a locomotive engine room?

The heart of an MLW FA-1. CN 9400 was the first streamlined diesel built by MLW and is on display at Exporail. The engine room (still containing a 244 engine) is open to the public as can be seen here.

Paranoid is how people describe someone's unsupported, or phantasmagorical assertion(s) and/or hypothesis.

I, on the other hand am correct in that the screeners don't like me and I know this to be true because it is unconverted fact that they reject 70% of my submitted pictures.

Unless they are of this type:

Consequently, I am not at all paranoid.

You've got it all wrong, HG. They like you just fine. It's Jimmy Stewart they hate.

It could be a submarine. Submarines back in the day used Fairbanks-Morse engines... kept them afloat for years (pun intended)

Hey, I have an idea. Change the description to an ATSF FP45 and EMD 20-645, you can say it was a freshly repainted warbonnet

Submarine engine rooms are massively tighter and the Colt (Fairbanks Morse) Opposed Piston design results in a much teller engine - so no, it couldn't have been.

Here is a picture of "Jake", an FM opposed piston engine from the icebreaker Mackinaw.

Troy's original point was "to the untrained eye," to which I agreed, and to which I disagree with your point here. I wouldn't know that a submarine engine room is massively tighter and has an opposed piston design resulting in a much taller engine.

So yes, it could have been.

But this is a train site and as Derek pointed out, the caption makes clear this ain't no submarine!

Oh, I agree, the caption explains it clearly. Just saying to the point Troy was making, to the untrained eye, this could be any kind of engine room.

And I believe that your shot deserves to be in the database just as much as Dave's does.
