Hello everyone,
Just had my first picture accepted over the weekend!

My second picture was rejected for Horizon unlevel
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=95871

I did use this method to try and level the horizon, and it has been successful in the past for me over at airliners.net.

Just wondering what you all think, is it worth working on some more?

I have much more experience in aviation photography, but have been recently bitten by the rail bug. I am still learning the basics here.

One more question, since I am new to railfanning, could someone explain what a 3/4 wedge shot is?

Thanks in advance for the input

Bill

Try rotating it about 1.5 degrees counter clock wise.

I concur on the CCW rotation.

The choice shot of about 90% of railroad photographers where the photo requires basically no thought and/or composition. It's the shot you want to stay away from because it's such a common angle. A wedgie shows the front and side of a locomotive, and usually little else. Your shot in question could probably be considered a wedgie. The best thing to do with any photography is to experiment with new angles and such. Also, remember that it's always quality over quanity.

Also keep in mind the limits of your camera. You don't want to be monkeying around too much with the dramatic with a low end point-and-shoot. [/experience]
