Default Peq?

Is this really a PEQ shot?

You usually need something else to make the scene with a streak shot. The texture of the snow is nice, but the scene as a whole isn't very exciting.

Too much pole would be my guess.

Ok that's fine. Thank you guys. I just really liked how it turned out and I was quite proud of it. I was just surprised it didn't make it.

As someone suggested once before (Kevin Madore, possibly?), the streak is positioned too highly in the frame and I really find that distracting. Loyd is correct in that you need more to make the photo work. The texture of the snow is real nice, but it's still not enough to get the image accepted. A signal or something of additional interest.
