Default PEQ they say...

Just curious to see what everyone's thoughts are on this one. I've seen it done here before and decided to give it a shot. Maybe the idea has run its course with the screeners but I figured it had a 50/50 chance of getting on. Anything I could have done better to improve the shot? Thanks.

I like the idea, from my monitor, I think the lead locomotive could be a tad sharper.

The train could have been a little better framed inside the mirror, closer to the edge. I'd also have cropped a little tighter on the top and left.

I had luck incorporating the track into the scene, along with a photochop flip. I would suggest getting the interest out of the center of the frame somehow.

I considered flipping the image but noticed a number of the previously accepted images had not been flipped. Loyd, I missed yours when looking through the database. I may consider this option.

Joe, I do have a second frame with the locomotive closer to the edge of the mirror. I will edit that one and adjust the crop and post here sometime tomorrow to see what your thoughts are.

I didn't take the time to look with exception to Lloyd's, but in the other accepted mirror photos, did any of them show the photog's car reflecting too?
