Agree with Bob-- there is a good, dramatic scene here, but I think it would be better done if a little more "loose." This angle is very tight and just the locomotives are the scene. If there were...

Oh, indeed-- I do level my images (scanned from slides) when needed. What I am talking about is when I shoot below 35 mm and start getting distortion. So, say I shoot next to a grain elevator on 28...
