Good advice....

One correction though; ISO refers to the sensitivity of the film or digital sensor, not the lens. :grin:

Let it go. The color is off and there's absolutely no detail showing in the nose of the locomotive. The horizon is possibly tilted slightly as well. You have a good eye and I see what you were trying...
