Appeal! The scene is good so the open door shouldn't matter.

I agree. Normally I don't like the open nose door of a widecab but the composition of this one is such that it isn't as offending. I like the overall balance plus the shot shows the slightly different door arrangement of the early Canadian widecabs. Nice consist!

Rats... what that today??

I've been following what has been getting accepted lately and thought it was open season - carte blanche.

As for your shot - I'm not a fan. The door is open which is not appealing in it's context. The scene itself - to me - seems somewhat generic and wedge-like. Perhaps it's the motive power that I am overlooking?

As for an open door - maybe a close up would work since instead of detracting from the scene, it becomes the focal point of the scene. Air conditioning, I suppose.


So - not to call out a favorite photographer, but let me call out a favorite photographer:

After I saw this, I was (am) tempted to reupload my "Dog-on-a-Train".

Carte blanche for some, I suppose.

EDIT: In on appeal, w00t! It's the first time I've had an appeal accepted, actually.

Really, Mitch? BTW, is that a sasquatch I see in the background? As for Steve's photo, I think one could argue that the unfinished tank cars, sans domes and other hardware, probably do constitute a rare catch. Anyone can photoshop a "squatch" into their photo . . .

Funny how that is accepted but W. D. Shaw's less-unlevel, elevated curve shot is.

Looks level to me. How can you tell it isn't? The only good reference I had to work with was the vehicules on the left, really.

Would you quit trying to think logically. There is no logic on here sometimes.

I was being a bit facetious with my comment since W.D.'s photo was rejected for unlevel even though the train was in a less-elevated curve than the one in your shot.
