Angry PAQ Beverly Shores Station (7 day showing)

Not everyone likes Asparagus either. I thought it was cool right down to the rail electric arc flash, and for seven days you can view it here.

I think that is Broccli? I like it, neat station that I have seen night photos of but not here so just for the station could have been accepted. Don't see the blur photos that much now that there are night flashes. Bob

That's a neat picture. As best I can tell, RP doesn't really like blur shots anymore unless there is something very, very unique about the shot.

At least one study concluded that dislike of asparagus, brussels sprouts, and broccoli is more than preference, it is genetic. I like that study.
I think that Chase has done some night blur shots, so maybe they are divided on this.

Three of my favorite veggies. I thought it might get accepted since a blur shot of a signal was recently a SC. Iíll put it up my sleeve for a later hand (submission try).

The blur is more of a distraction than a contribution to the subject. The ballast center to right is also detracting from the scene. Just my opinion, but I agree fully with the rejection.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I kinda like it and it is different. I mean when some locations here have a gazillion photos only differing in the locomotive leading the way, a little change is nice to see.

I definitely like what you're going for here, and the building is very interesting, but I'm not sure this particular execution works.

I'm sorry to say that I agree with the rejection as well. Since the non-railroad related building is the subject, it's not going to be accepted. Additionally there's not a compositional relationship with the building as well. The streaks create an unnecessary barrier between the viewer and the building. The viewer cannot focus on the entire image...the focal point of the image is a competition between the blur and the building.

If you are anxious to try again, use the railroad to support the building. Perhaps try not including the railroad at all (which you could use for your portfolio).

Non-railroad related building? It is and has been the South Shore station since 1929. I have no problem focusing on the entire image. Like I said, beauty is in the eye of the beholder......

I am with him, this could have been accepted. Distraction, I don't get it, it is a foreground blur. I like the colors of the blur match the colors of the station sign. I never like chain link fences in front of stations but that is what is there.

Merging two photos could have produced a better result but looking at a typical days offering, this would have been a plus.
