Ha!, i tried a shot almost exactly like this one a few months ago, and it got shot down for the same reason. Maybe one of the screeners doesn't like dogs!

Hmmmmm, maybe if you have him riding the train or blowing the horn, or maybe fetching a freight car...

I like the shot. He just got a little exited about the loco like a lot of us do when we see them. Don't know what the difference is in a shot with your dog, vs. horses, cows, turkeys, or even flowers. Maybe get a little lower to close up the space between him and the loco, and put some pants on him next time.

Edit: And like Lyod pointed out. Keep him in tact.

In more seriousness...you could try cropping off the..."offending regions" and see where that leaves you.

The pants were for fun only, but I also manipulated (poorly) one of the set of tracks to move his dog up closer to the loco to show him what I meant in the post before that about getting lower. There's just too much space beween them I think. I like his photo as it is. Mr. Happy is a fact of life. A lot of male dogs do that when they sit for a few seconds. I still think he should include his paw though. If he crops out the offender, he may get the part of subject cut off rejection. It may be cool too if he could get his dog to face away and look at the train like the young railfan type of photos that are on RP.

Maybe you should try blurring the dog, or have the train in a long exposure, with the dog watching.

Put in the locomotive box.... GE K-944AC Canine Evolution Series
