Go to agree

I'm with Alan on this one - English Electric rules!
The legendary Deltics, class 37's, class 50's class 20's, I guess you need to be a Brit to understand :D
Not much applause for General Motors...

I think this shot would be best taken at dusk when there is still a little bit of light around to lessen the impact of the bright red lights and help the camera to pick out other details.
The red...

Digi Projectors

Having more or less ditched taking slides now and concentrating mostly on digital photography, I didn't want to stop doing photographic presentations (slide shows) to rail clubs. So I have invested...

All the museum staff wear period costumes which really adds to the feel of the place. The problem is that visitors to the museum (wearing 21st century clothing) mingle with the staff and can ruin the...

I don't believe the image was rejected due to oversharpening as the one that I posted doesn't look as bad. The image that I attached to this thread is a reduced version of that image and does seem to...

Disappointed This Got Rejected

I was very disappointed that the attached picture was rejected:

First off it was rejected for being too dark, which was fair comment as my original upload did need to be a smidge lighter. So I...

Personally, I don't like photos where the back of the train is abruptly chopped off at the edge of the photo, and over here in the UK, this is often considered to be bad practice, whereas I think it...

Bad angle

I often describe shots like the first shot as 'the train running you over'. It is very head on and you are looking up at the train as if it is about to run over your head. The shot needs to be taken...

Dave,

Congrats, though looking at the quality of your shots on rp.net, I am surprised your pictures aren't regularly featured in magazines.
What's the story with the 2 shots in India?

White = grey

Yes, it is definitely dark. The white areas on the loco are appearing slightly grey on my monitor, and the bogies are too dark. If you have Photoshop PS2, dont adjust the brightness of the image,...

Tempting

Dave,
I must say that I would have been naughty on this one, and I would have been very tempted to take each train in its perfect position and then digitally stitch together the master shot with all...

On second thoughts.....

On second thoughts, having just looked at Loyd's picture looking the other way, I don't think I would want to stand on the opposite side of the track for fear of an unintentional rapid descent!!!!!!!

Welcome

Loyd,

Welcome to the group.
I agree with Dave and Chris that the tit needed squeezing a little later, but I would also look critically at the lighting as the shot is taken from the shadow side....

I used to take a hell of a lot of photos with a wide angle lens, and when I look back at those shots now I cringe. A few of the shots were fine, but whenever a photo is taken with a wide angle and...

Wide angle distortion

The original shot wasn't anywhere near 3 degrees out. If you took the right hand edge of the loco's bonnet as a point of reference, it was only about 0.35 degrees out. The problem with this photo is...

Night photting tips

Assuming you are shooting in RAW, once you have processed the image, save it as a TIF file and not a JPEG. Then if you need to do some further work on the image which may culminate in multiple saves,...

I have to say Jeffrey that your shot breaks all the rules and should really be heading to the recycle bin, but for some strange reason I like it and can't quite put my finger on exactly why...

I agree with Ween, definitely oversharpened, and probably over compressed too. I would also say that the sun is too head on, though that probably had nothing to do with the poor image quality...

My thoughts

I love this shot and the idea of small train big scenery. However, the shot looks slightly unbalanced to me and possibly needs to have the camera tilted up slightly to get more sky and put the bush...

I'm sorry, but the original picture in this thread just doesn't do anything for me at all. It looks like one of my shots when I've just had a skinful of beer :o
