Default The Notorious P.E.Q.

Well, I knew this was a long shot, but I recall seeing things like this done before.
Expected bad crop, blurry, high sun, or bad composition...but not PEQ. Do y'all think I've got anything here? Or is it a lost cause....

I like it, but the "old and forlorn" mood you're trying to convey clashes with the bright colors and sunny day. What would it look like in black and white?

The rejection may be related to losing all detail in the trucks of the engine, that entire area has gone to solid black, a big blob.

By blurring the train, you place all emphasis of the shot on what is basically the side of an old building with a boarded up window and dead grass in the foreground. Thus, they gave you a PEQ.

I think Joe has a point. So much emphasis on the depot, which is crowded into the corner of the shot, and with all that shadow.

Maybe a wider shot with the depot presented better would have helped.
