Perhaps Tom will join us and explain why the image is framed this way. One possible explanation is that the lens he had wasn't wide enough and he had his back against some immovable object, like a...

Nice job on that edit, Rich! I think if that were submitted, it would get accepted with no problem.

Contrast, yes. I might also bring the Saturation and/or Vibrance up a bit. Maybe even some clarity. It looks a bit too pastel and needs a little pop.

Otherwise, I don't see any reason why...

I've never been a fan of the degrees and decimal degrees format, especially using negative numbers for west longitude. Perhaps it is popular now because Google Maps uses it. Otherwise, it would...

Apparently, I need to seriously push the Saturation and Vibrance sliders to the right on these....maybe dial in a red color cast. They just don't measure up. :roll:

Yes, it is broken....Tango Uniform. :(

Got an odd message last night when I tried to pin the location of my latest submission. I tried it again this AM. Still not working.

I'm wondering why he felt the need to remove the signpost. Yes, it was in the scene, but it did not obstruct the view of the train. It also doesn't have any text on the side from which he was...

There have been a couple of eye-grabbing steam shots in the last 24 hrs. One of them looked real and the other one looked very much contrived. One sits at the To24, while the other hasn't yet...

Ted, I struggle with sunrises and sunsets. If you look at all of the sunrise shots of 611 from that event last October, you'll see a wide range of edits. Some are bright, some are darker and some...

From the looks of it, simply getting the caption correct did the trick.

There certainly are some lenses that give you cause for pause when it comes to physical protection. With me, it's the Nikkor 14-24 f/2.8G. The front of that lens looks like a big, glass bowl. ...

I'm not a Canon shooter, but the 5DIII is a pro-level camera and should easily handle ISO 200-400, without any issues with noise, perhaps unless the pictures were underexposed and processed heavily. ...

Of course, it's also a function of how fast your train is moving. The trains I shoot typically don't go much more than 20 mph, but even then, if I'm shooting wide for a close-up, I go for as much...

Just curious what your shutter speed was on the blurry shot? I have found that when you're shooting wide angle, and the train gets in your face, shutter speeds like 1/500th, 1/640th, that we're all...
