As long as you are planning to go mirrorless from now on, that's an OK strategy. The key thing to keep in mind is that S lenses are completely useless on DSLRs, but G and E lenses will work on both...

Hi Daniel,

The Nikon 18-200mm "DX" lens that you have been using is what I refer to as a "do-all" lens. It covers a wide range of focal lengths from wide angle to medium telephoto. The...

Well, the Z6 would be an excellent upgrade from a D300 as the latter is probably 10 years old now, unless you have the "S" version. But that said, there are some caveats that you will need to...

Concur on that. If I were posting this particular image, I would have at least put the watermark on the opposite side, where there is dead-space. I typically pick the dead side for mine.

Sean's image is not really a going-away shot, but rather, a rear quarter shot of a stopped locomotive and consist. It is interesting in that it depicts a mixed train with an N&W "Mollie" on point,...

Hi Sean,

I'm curious as to where you shot that. I was there Sunday too, and they didn't doublehead until late in the afternoon, virtually all of which was that uphill stretch from the Cherry Hill...

Yes. It's likely two images blended. One long exposure with no train, and another with the train, the latter being done at 1/640th.

Tough to say what happened here. I have seen other photos cited for shadows issues when the locomotives were not affected.....in other words, the shadows don't have to be on the main subject, if...

You're not alone. None of us can figure out how to do it either. I think the feature may have disappeared with the major redesign of the site, some years ago. Perhaps it is something that only...

I'm not sure it matters (to me, at least) how they moved 611. I'm just glad they did move it. Pretty diesel or dirty diesel.....it's still just a diesel. :razz:

I too have found the BEST "starbursts" are achieved with good prime lenses. The Nikon G-series primes work great, even at f/8. I also second the advice that others are providing with respect to...

Although I would love to see 611 out on the main line once again, I am grateful that NS is still supporting the VMT in getting her to places where she can run. I recall a photo charter some years...

The To24 has nothing to do with site popularity. The photographer links most of his postings to other sites such as Facebook. He's certainly not alone, but he's better at it than most...

Doug,

I would echo the others. Go with a more panoramic crop, to lose some of the top and bottom, but retain the main subject matter. I use a 3:5 crop a lot on RP, so I know they accept it.

I think that's a significantly better edit. It might still get dinged for no light on the nose, but it has much more "pop" than the original. As others have noted, the original looks like it was...

I'm just scratching my head as to why anyone would shoot from this perspective. In my mind, it fails as a documentary photo. It leaves me wanting more detail from the side. In this case, it...
