Default Thoughts?

I was trying for a more artistic approach with this. I have seen a shot similar to this on RP. I got shot down for PEQ. Any ideas on what to change or is this worth an appeal?

.Thanks for any help.

I like it, but RP usually only accepts reflection shots when the actual locomotive is present along with the reflection. I would have shown the actual cab/nose of the unit and it's reflection, or the entire unit and reflection.

It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

I thought RP had accepted one somewhat recently, can't find it. Here is the only one I could find, from waaay back, so it matters little for figuring out current screening standards.
