I like the overall idea, but I think the problem is the people are too large and too close to the camera, relative to the train, the main subject. Being too far away, the train does not match the...

Backlighting - good or bad?

I basically grew up on a diet of backlighting, shooting steam in South Africa, and even though I've adapted over the years to shooting diesel & electric traction with light on the nose, I just cannot...

If the loco was where the 2nd and 3rd wagons are in your shot, I think it would be better. For me, the pole in front of the loco tender draws attention to the wires and makes it worse than what it is.

My 2 cents......No I don't think it would get on, I've had shots with better nose lighting than yours rejected for not enough light on the nose. It's a roster shot for your own collection, but don't...

Pan shot composition

I would appreciate any input on the composition of this 1/60 handheld pan shot, which I have not submitted yet. Is it good to go as is? Or should it be a tighter crop?

What says the Panmeister?...
