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...

I guess I have never understood the folks who post images without substantive captions. Perhaps it is because some view photography as art and figure that the picture should tell the story all by...

Honestly, I am sort of OK with it, but if I were taking this shot, I'm not particularly liking the empty foreground space at the crossing and that you've dedicated so little of the frame to the...

Looks like Doug was successful!

[photoid=750175]

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

I think the equipment in the rejected image is more interesting as well. The image is also noticeably sharper than the accepted one. I wonder, were they submitted side-by-side....meaning screened...

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 used to. Over the years, I think I have purchased a UV filter for just about every lens I own. It's not so much to protect the front element from impact, but more because over time, cleaning the...

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...

I've never seen drops on the lens cause major issues, but then I'm pretty careful to keep the lens covered (or facing down) until I take the shot, so I rarely have much in the way of water on the...

This image definitely fits in the "artsy" category, which means that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some might say it lacks a well-defined subject, but to me, the subject is the track...

Both submissions need closer cropping on the top and bottom, IMHO. That's particularly true when you have a completely featureless, blue sky. I would also crop off some of the foreground. Your...

I don't know how I missed this discussion, since I am probably one of the worst offenders, when it comes to lengthy captions. At least I TRY to use paragraphs! :lol:

I think that sums it up nicely. Shooting through rain is challenging. The watery filter takes the detail out of many elements in the photo. Unless the rain is obvious, it just results in blah.......
