It hasn't been a good year. Mike Condren passed away from Covid as well. He was a prolific KCS/Frisco photographer. And we lost J. David Ingles, another prolific photographer since the early '60's...

Kevin, I guess if we are being really picky. Agree with your comment on the first photo though. But compared to some of what has been accepted here lately, with strange roster crops and really grainy...

It may sound crazy, but there are a lot of groups on Facebook that warrant a look. Most of the RR sites strive to keep politics out of the equation. There have been some absolute killer shots from...

Make it softer?

Hmmm, this is right out of the camera, just resized and cropped a little. I've never had to soften an image...... I resubmitted at a higher resolution which seems to have helped some.

Between extreme color changes and adding trees, skies, etc., maybe RP needs a better way to report these altered images. That said, some images I took at Goose Lake in the fall are pretty red, but...

Was the original heavily tweaked as well? Look at the tree in front of the pilot that goes from 2 branches into one. The same exact tree looks to be inserted just above the headlight, filling out the...

That looks more like the original I submitted that was overexposed. Yes, the fog was pretty heavy and does affect the image. No big deal. Funny thing, the image looking the other way off the Hwy 30...

Oh well.....

So after numerous drone shots of stored engines and countless images where I have to squint to even see the train, thought I would try something different. Scanned a slide from Agnew, IL taken 8/94...

Joe, Most railfans have seen an SW pulling a train as well. I had never seen the Richmond shot in daylight. Point is, if I had posted the SW shot, I would have been lucky to get 10% of the views...

Top shot

A blah shot of a SW1500 beating out the iconic 1983 NRHS triple decker shot at Richmond. What has this world come to?
