Joe, why not upload this one? I think it's a lot more interesting.

If you check ebay you can find Canon 28-105 lenses for just over a hundred bucks. I've used them before and they're not spectacular, but they get the job done. Then once you have the funds built you...

What was the first camera you used for railfan pictures?

Technically a disposable Kodak camera, but for the internet it was really a 3.2mp Olympus P&S.

How old were you when you started?

-20 Saturation, darkened a little bit, and a .25 CCW rotation.

Do you have a shot that has a little bit more space on the left hand side?

You would have had a real winner on #4 if the train with the SD70M-2s had parked a little further back so the nose of the lead unit wasn't covered up by the...

I was in town on family business for half a week, and I found time to sneak out and do some railfanning around sunrise each day. Of course, the one day I decided to sleep in because it was stormy I...

Well it sucks, but I'd save this one for Flickr or RRPA. You might not get the construction in next time, though, but they'll be other opportunities. There will always be sunny opportunities in STL....

Reshoot on a sunny day, or at least get darker clouds behind the train.

I'm not exactly sure how one would go about making a shot like this, but if you're looking for something to put in the center, why not something railroad-oriented, such as track, a signal, or a...

Although the idiot in this video doesn't scream about a dash 9, he is incredibly stupid and makes me ashamed to be a railfan.

My opinion is that the sun would make this photo so much better. The photo says "Taken with Permission", so if you're able to gain that again on a sunny day, this location would make a nice evening...

I wouldn't do it. I wouldn't give anybody an original file that I don't know, especially if they write like that. That being said, it's not necessarily a "spectacular" shot (I know you have better in...

Much better. RP still might nab it for 'going away", but at least it's a better edit. I know that you're doing the best that you can with that shot, but I still think you should reshoot it horizontal...

Why is it silly? You don't NEED a mid-range lens for railroad photography, although it is helpful. A 17-40-50-telephoto covers all necessary focal lengths (if it's in the 60mm area, he could just...

You could always get a 17-40 f/4L and a 50 f/1.8. Those combined are just under 900. That way you'd have most focal lengths covered when you get you 70-200, and you can get something like a 24-105 in...
