Default PEQ'd-possible to fix?

I love this picture. I like the snow inside the wheel tread, the packed snow on the couplers, and on the railings. Does this have no value, or is it just not RP material? Would it be more pleasing to get closer up?

For me, the shot is weirdly cropped. It might be better closer, or as a pan with the wheels sharp.

Also, if you love the shot, why not give it a caption? A shot like this without a caption to tell the viewer what they're looking at is a cloudy, snowy shot of some awkwardly cut-off hoppers.

Agreed. Awkward crop, poorly lit, no clear subject. The concept might work a little better as a profile shot... I don't know.

I don't think this image can be reworked, but, another shot from the series might work.

Great advice! My thoughts exactly.

I like the idea, but the execution doesn't do it for me. Were it me, I'd go with a totally side-on view, cropped tightly to just show the two outer-most wheels, the rail, and the coupler and draft gear plastered with snow. A pan/pace shot of this would be even more effective if you could do it, especially with a bit of blowing snow.

I must admit,although I usually try and re-submit images the one rejection I take as a definite no-no is the one here.Maybe I'm wrong - does anyone re-submit an image after it's been PEQ'd ?

Only if you do something like show more train. Appeal a PEQ without a nice note saying why is a bad idea. Your Photo is informative but thats it. Now a shot of the train set packed with snow I would like to see.
