Default What say you - PAQ material?

Not that I'm surprised that this got PAQed (new, correct spelling ).... But it did. Thoughts, would you have accepted this if you were screening?

Print out a 8 1/2" x 11" piece of paper with some jibberish on it and tape it to the wall

Show the whole front of the building down to the sidewalk and not just the lettering, which you then centered.

That would look weird, this lettering is on the third or fourth floor.

A logo on a building - that, to the uninitiated eye, doesn't even look like a RR logo - is this what GT put on the side of a tender? - just won't cut it at RP. A shot of the building as an RR HQ does work for RP.

I don't recall ever having seen a logi-only shot on RP that was not of a portion of an engine or railcar, or station or some such.

PS: the "GT" on the left reminds me of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) logo.

Then this might be one for Flickr.

Another PAQ - what say you? There were only four of these inspection vehicles imported to Canada.

Um, never mind..... I appealed and it got accepted about 2 minutes later, much to my surprise.

What was it originally rejected for?

Glad to see it was accepted on appeal - in the past, it seemed appeals were much easier to come by and kept the site "fun". Personally, though I always hated the nitpicking, even those rejections merited a slightly better shot - sometimes. It's the flat out appeal rejections that likely cause so much migration.

As for the shot - I'd have liked a pinch more sky and a little less foreground to keep the subjects from being any more centered vertically in the composition. Looked tight, though. Maybe going wider to get the building in or going tighter otherwise to concentrate the composition on each car.

Regardless - interesting subjects to add to the DATABASE. And pretty shot, as well with the vibrant colors and nice sky.

Poor aesthetic quality.

The shot is at 22mm, and I have an 18-250, so I could just barely have gone wider.

Thanks.
