The light effects I see are caused by ice crystals, likely kicked up by the wind. This is a small scale (and pretty darn cool) phenomena not so often seen. It is much more commonly seen high in the...

Probably a product of photos getting a single-digit number's worth of seconds in review. One or two screeners faced with a big queue of photos, many of them with far more flaws than Gary's street...

Just curious as a film shooter, how do you blow that situation with digital? That's an "F8 and be there" set up if I've seen one for 100 ISO Provia.

What's up with the color on this one? I figured cellphone shot, but in exif, it's a Nikon D3300. I thought it was an old scanned negative at first.

I would say Progressive Rail is as good of a chance as this line has. These low-margin lines are their specialty. If they pull out, I think the next step is the county saying "Well, we tried."

I should add after reviewing a photo of SBVR 102, it is NOT a GP35 carbody. With some conversations elsewhere, we have determined it is ex CLNA 9657, which is former CSXT 9657/B&O 3806.

Nothing at all different noted passing through Moorefield yesterday with the stored units. A new arrival was on hand, GP38-3 (in GP35 carbody) 102. Nice looking unit, with the South Branch Valley...

I appreciate that input, Doug. You're right-- sharpen the image enough to make the train look right and the sky looks like a Lite-Brite. And I have more friends using Lightroom than anything.

That's about as helpful as tossing a 50-page report back on an employee's desk and saying "This needs work."

Care to elaborate? I find the biggest issue with scans is that the compression applied...

Good point; I hadn't thought of that one. I might have enough room on the scan to loosen that up a bit, but not likely not enough to overcome the tight crop.

I was surprised to see this photo get rejected, but then remembered the dreaded "going away." I rarely appeal, and if I do with this one, I think it would be my second time in nearly 20 years of...

First I've heard of it, and still not 100% known who all is involved. But, from the best I can tell, it sounds like the former GP mill will be turned into a crosstie repurposing facility. I would...

Looks like the camera shook just a bit, to me. Nothing is really crisp, at least on my monitor. For cropping, I think I would prefer the entire bridge structure be shown instead of cut off on the...
