That's interesting. The Nikon System is a little more flexible. Any of Nikon's recent lenses, DX or FX will mount on any F-mount camera, DX or FX. An FX lens used on a DX camera will result in a...

I'm not a Canon shooter, but I believe that the T5 has an APS-C (crop) sensor and the 6D is a full-frame camera. If you have lenses that were designed for a crop sensor, they will not work...

Hi Daniel,

Yes, and I enjoy seeing them. Not being much inclined to visit some of the exotic places that you and he travel to (such as Iran :eek:), the photos you post are probably the only...

Hi Daniel,

I'm thinking that this is not the kind of shot that would have me digging my heels in with RP. Like you, I do lots of charters and there's always SOMEBODY who is fortunate enough to...

Charters....love 'em....hate 'em. Love 'em because you get to see operations that would otherwise never happen today. Hate 'em because there are other good photographers (sometimes way too many)...

Hi Daniel,

This is a tough call. I understand that there may be significance to the equipment depicted in this photo, and I understand that there have been lots of "rare view" or "rare angle"...

No, no tripods there. It was run and gun. I was a participant on a charter that day, which would be departing out of Cumbres Pass later in the morning. This train was bringing one of several cuts...

Unless you're regularly going to be shooting in bad light, I would not rush out to replace it. That is a reasonably recent sensor, albeit a DX (crop) sensor. I've not shot a D3300, so I can't tell...

Hi Joseph,

The East Broad Top Railroad & Coal Company was a narrow gauge coal hauler that operated in Western PA from the 1870s until the mid-1950s. It was unusual because narrow gauge railroads...

Hi Joe,

The EBT hasn't run on that stretch since the 1950s. I suspect that in that spot, the train probably never will come. For it to run at all, we have to hope that Bill Gates or Warren...

That's not just an empty track shot, it's an EBT abandonment shot. Those bring in the views. The only thing missing is a big, thick tree growing up in the gauge. Abandonment shots can be as...

Yes, it looks overexposed to me. Anytime a clear sky goes from being distinctly blue to that super-light blue (or worse), that's a good clue that you're shooting too bright. In this case, it looks...

Spot-on, Doug, and I'll ad one additional thing. The OP was clearly excited by the experience, but in order to convey that excitement, the photo needs something more than just track ahead. Crew...

Well, George is one of the most prolific RP contributors and I suspect that has a lot to do with it. It is also possible that he is linking it to other sites such as Facebook.

Hi Adam,

I'll certainly defer to the opinions of others here, as I don't shoot diesels, and the rules that apply to steam seem to be somewhat looser....

I don't see it as a bad photo. If it...

Hi Troy,

My shot was taken at nearly mid-day, and at about the same time of year as the OP's photo (October). The major difference was WA vs. VA. As noted, the sun was just out of the frame on...

I suspect that with the raw image, I could probably tweak it and make it look better than it does. That said, even the best edit probably won't ever get it on RP. The cut-off truck is just too...

Hi Joseph,

I think the reason is because the image was shot in Cambodia. In some parts of the world, it is OK to ride on the roof of the passenger cars, so I suspect that the authorities don't...

I've always advocated a policy that folks can link as much as they'd like.....but only RP-generated views would count toward To24. But, it's not my site. :-)

Some of them also look as if they were shot from above 400 AGL. I suspect that many of them either ignore the rules or they don't know the rules. A week or so back there was a video that appeared...

Hi Scott,

Both images are cropped far too tightly at the top, and to some degree, elsewhere. You'll need to leave some space between any major element and any one of the borders of the photo. ...
