Default Opinions on another PEQ?

I had this shot nabbed for PEQ. Any suggestions on what I should do to improve the photo in attempt to get it accepted in the future?

Find a real dispatcher and not one on a model railroad.

You wasted screener time on this? You tried to sneak this in?

See next to last row of shots, very bottom of the web page.

Chase, that is pathetic.

Normally, a model or in this case, a fictional railroad, I wouldn't even take images, but I found the dispatcher board and the documentation of their operations to be pretty realistic, thus possibly being worthy of being accepted. It wasn't a matter of trying to "sneak" it in. I figured that it was a neat subject, regardless if the railroad was real or not. In the photo description, I even put the "G&G".

Oh well, opinions are what I requested.

Hmmm, no railroad name, no city in Ohio listed (did you not know where you were?), yet the exact date you took it is listed. No, you didn't try to "sneak" this at all.

I liked it

I'm sure Chase isn't the only person who's tried to fake one in...

Chris, I left the railroad as "untitled" because the "G&G" is not listed in the database under railroads. As for not typing a location, I'm sure the owner of the railroad wouldn't mind, but I just left it blank for his own privacy.

I really was uncertain if RP would accept the shot or not. I just kind of threw it out there to see what would happen. I noticed Rail-videos.net accepted the following video, which I thought was pretty different and unique.

http://rail-videos.net/video/view.php?id=5717

While it is a legit railroad, I wouldn't consider it the real thing. Overall, still a neat video!

I was just simply trying something "different". Not trying to "sneak it in" or anything along those lines. If I was trying to do so, I wouldn't of mentioned it in the forums.

I personally have had a problem with those trying to tell us to turn railroad photography into an "art form." 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
