There's your PEQ. Maybe if she was a real railroader/museum worker or it was an actual piece of rolling stock, it might get in. But she's not, it's not, it won't.

Next time he needs to try the Nick Benson method. Since she's on land, a towel on the grass with her laying there in a bikini is a sure 20K+ viewed shot, and probable PCA.

The crop looks weird to me. If you wanted to show the girl on the rail car, the crop is too loose and if you wanted to show the wagon with girl controlling the switching/shunting operation, it's too tight (it doesn't matter that it was actually a static display).

I agree with dejv, too tight a crop, no context.

You cut off part of the caboose and she's wearing too much clothing.

Definite PEQ.

Not bad, Alex. Good lighting and all, but I'd like to see just a wee bit more of the caboose, or perhaps the caboose with her standing on it, and a locomotive or something along those lines in the background. Just a thought.

Jim, pay very close attention to what gets accepted from me next summer.

There's plenty of context. Since most of RP viewers live in their mother's basement and drool over every photo of a female posted, Alex is just pimping his girlfriend out for views.

No offense Alex, and I like a few of the shots you've done at KRM with Jessica, but this is overkill.

For those that may have missed it, this is a well-done female railroader photo (ironically, of Jessica hard at work):

I was thinking more along the lines of:

Context "The interrelated conditions in which something exists or occurs"

In the photo under discussion the right of the caboose is cut off. This immediately kills the photo for me. If we saw the rest of the caboose, it would be OK. To get better than that however we need to see the surrounding area. For example, the rest of the train or a building or crew members, or other "interrelated conditions."

I wasn't really considering other words with "ex" in them.

Unike some people.
