Regarding Don's caboose shot, I'm fairly confident that it would have been accepted without hesitation had there been a railroad employee or two standing on the rear platform of the caboose. I like the shot, but it just feels like something is missing. Being a caboose, a bit of human element would have really separated that shot from what it is. I know he can't go back and change that, but that's just my observation.
