Default Will Hell freeze over..?

I showed you all a copy of a poor negative from Berlin a couple of weeks ago and from the same era I offer this. Again a poor negative but a lot of work has been done on it to get it to this stage. Taken in March 1966 inside a shed with little light and an awful camera. I don't suppose that RP will like it but it's been popular on flickr . Opinions ?
All the best Dave

Just one opinion.....

Keep it on Flickr, as some will indeed find it interesting. Unfortunately, it doesn't fit the RP mold. Keep in mind, RP is a business with a reasonably well-defined product, not a museum.

As stated previously, if you've somehow come to be on thin ice with the RP Crew, submitting images that you pretty much know are not going to fly will not likely improve the relationship.

Yeah, I do Flickr too. Tons of non-RP stuff there.

I feel that the biggest issue with it is that there is nothing in the image to give it a sense of time. It could be photo in a building of preserved locos taken this year if you didn't know the date.

I like it, although the cropping is a bit tight for my taste, especially at the top.

I like it a lot, but then again I shoot a lot of b&w, and use ancient cameras. for me, a great photo is more about mood than hardware (engines.)

Submit it under the initials of "DL" and it'll get accepted.

Perhaps I should have included the middle initial: A

That would exclude me, but I knew who you were gunning for, anyway.
