I've definitely experienced some similar things, but I'm honestly surprised how often crews are accommodating and friendly to rail photographers. I think it's safe to say workers in the vast majority...

If Japanese rail operations are a serious interest of yours, I'd say don't let the weather hold you back from the trip. I don't think you'll have as good a trip if you're primary concern is 'will I...

Are there any shots on RP with a train passing by this footwear-meets-nature installation art piece/former tree littered with old stinky shoes? I feel like I've seen it before, but can't seem to find...

Interesting question. A couple of my family's friends with no real interest in railroading have similar images framed on their walls (by similar, I mean strings of boxcars across the frame above wide...

Two reasons why I find flickr to be an easier platform for viewing photos are: 1. I can look through all of a photographer's full size images by just hitting the right arrow key opposed to having to...

Adding to what Janusz said, I'd think given how short the train is, there's too much empty space on either side for RP standards. Besides those issues, the flowers are really nice, and having lived...

If it were a longer train filling up the empty space on the left, I think it would work.

This shot looks cloudy, not backlit. The B&W version has a lot of noise for a shot from 2014. I'm not crazy about the composition either. There's a lot of clutter on the left, with potentially...

If you can add a little more on the right and some more sky, I think you should be good. The shot has a lot going for it: Rio Grande paint, good light, nice reflection... I actually like the...

Do you have a version that shows the whole switch stand? I think it adds a lot to the shot, but I agree it doesn't work cut off.

I find it to be a nice detail orientated shot of a gorgeous locomotive, but it also seems like a prime candidate for either composition/balance or bad angle.

I haven't posted regularly here in a few years so I guess a couple screw ups were inevitable, given the luck I always seem to have.

I can't help but think if this was a photo of literally any American passenger train from the late 1960s, it would have been accepted immediately.

A little less sky and more ground should get the first one on. I think the second one will get on with a little brightening. RP normally accepts fog shots. As for the third, I'd add some space on...

I think it's a great human interest shot. To me, it's much more interesting than a lot of the conductor/random people at station shots on RP.

I'd like the shot more if there was some good sunlight on the downtown scene on the left.
