Question: When the "World's Greatest Railroad Photographer" links his images to Facebook, do Facebook users actually see a thumbnail of the image, like we do on RP, or is it just a URL...

Bob, I don't have an issue with your image. Sure, the bottom of the trucks are obscured, but I know I'm looking at a locomotive, and my brain immediately tells me the bridge has a low guard rail or...

Dave,

I think that if the bridge only partly obscured the running gear on the locomotive, you might find more folks in your camp, but I'm inclined to agree with Chris on this one. Quite frankly,...

Not being an IT guy, I can't appreciate the complexity of the coding that would be required to implement this, but the ideal solution to the To24 problem would be to promote only the Top 4 photos in...

I agree that the feature was nice, but Chris K. made a strong argument that the feature had to be eliminated because the amount of data involved was apparently killing his back-up process. Timely...

It is quite possible that someone else linked it. Because the links are no longer visible on RP, you'd never have any way to know that. I've had several run-of-the-mill shots get really decent...

I believe that's accurate. If you're unlucky enough to post next to KB, you're still screwed. :lol:

Congrats on getting this one on:

Of the three you presented at the start of this thread, it was definitely the best one.

Looking at the EXIF, it appears as if you...

Hi Dave,

I'm really scratching my head on the IQ issues with these. IIRC, you were shooting with a high-end (FF) Nikon, which should be able to handle all of these situations with ease....even...

The potential problem there is whether or not the equipment will be in the same positions, AND whether or not he'll have that nice puddle for the reflection. From my perspective (as a non-diesel...

Well, it is a cloudy day shot, but not a bad one. Even if you never get it on RP, it's still a keeper for your personal collection. I would re-crop and lose some of the non-pertinent stuff on the...

Hi Bob,

I suspect that the number of clicks on your shutter has something to do with it. The more you shoot, the quicker the problem may manifest itself. I have known folks who developed the...

Bob,

You may want to consider proactively sending your 750 back for the shutter recall. If you call them, they will send you an RS label, so you can box it up and just drop it at UPS at no charge...

I've not found the piezoelectric shakers to be that effective. Most of the dust that sticks either has to be blown off or wet-cleaned. My solution is not to change lenses outdoors. That really...
