How do you like this lens for train photos? It's one on my list of options for a long lens once I can afford it.

Yeah I currently only have a 18-105, so I'm probably going to get something like the 70-300, I had started a thread about this not too long ago, just haven't made the purchase yet.

I didn't own zoom lens at the time, but it's something I am looking at purchasing soon and would try this next time I go to this location or something similar.

This seems rather grainy as well for a 2017 photo, is this just due to over sharpening?

I didn't go out an find it, I just happened upon this while browsing the day's uploads. I get that many of you here in the forums don't seem to like this type of composition, which is a totally fine...

Yes that's the spot. The BPRR crosses over the WNYP, and there is indeed a lot of abandoned trackage and ROW in the area. Most of the signals on both RR's have been taken out of service and turned or...

I think the same would hold true if this were a daytime shot, the night lighting is what makes it work with the truss "obstruction" imo

I have more in the frame and opened it up to include the top of the bridge. That was a mistake on my part to crop it out. I also have frames from the train exiting the bridge, but in my mind it is...

I do have frames of that but they are more generic/cloudy IMO. This has the loco smoke and the dark/wet bridge rails which I felt added something to the scene.

I do agree with the chopped off top...

Definitely a good point about being further away. Any recommendations on what is a good shutter speed to have a good amount of blur but still be able to hold the camera freehand?

Blur-Pan Shots: What's the secret?

I have been attempting a pan shot fro some time, but they all seem to be rejected for being blurry. They seem to me to have the cab in focus which would be the point to me. Am I missing...

Yeah it seems in my experience that cloudy shots are hit or miss on acceptance. Possibly different screeners? Really hard to say.

As for this particular shot, I think bringing up the shadows a...

While it's not traditionally lit for a roster shot, it's a very good rain shot, something that is pretty hard to pull off. I like it and have no major issues with it.

If people post in the forums to learn and improve, your comments are not helpful in the slightest, and no, I don't think anyone "needs" to hear them.
