Default The PEQ

Trying to figure out why this got a PEQ rejection... I would have expected something else but why a PEQ?

The only thing I can think of is maybe the screener thought you were trespassing to get the shot...that's one of the reasons they'll throw out the PEQ.

I would appeal and tell them that you were not trespassing, if that's what they thought. That unlit number board probably isn't doing you any favors.

I am by no means an expert but maybe the stuff in front of the train?

too dark, too contrasty, clutter blocking the locomotive, annoying headlights, trespassing, (or just a combination of them) could all be valid reasons for the rejection.

looking at it again, there is a big pile of stuff between the rails and the train, obstructing the 2nd unit and the cars, and I can't figure out what they are.

BTW, why are there so many rails of such short length? What would those be used for?

My thoughts exactly, Loyd. Nice concept, but I don't think this image can make it (and as everyone knows, I'm the most forgiving guy in the world...).

Its the clutter, trespassing PEQ is only used for shots that appear to be in the gauge or something else where the photographer put himself in danger.
