Very nice photo. The blur of the scenery passing by and the shovel in motion, combined with the fire in the firebox and the rugged fireman nearly perfectly exemplify working a steam loco.

Some low light shots, like this one, look really cool. With the low ambient light, the reflcetions and headlights reaaly stand out. I think it adds interest.
Nice shot.

Actually, I like it. It is moody. There is enough ambient light to see the whole train, yet it is dark enough to generate the dark moodiness of the image.

Maybe you could have played with a...

I think it would be hard to pick a single favorite, but I can narrow it down, my favorite early diesel, C&O FP7 and E8 in the silver, blue and yellow. But I have a soft spot of any Baldwin shark or...

I often chase folks off tracks in my town. I don't write a lot of trespassing tickets, but I could, and maybe I'll start.

At about 230am 7-24-05 I had to take photos of a 15 year old boy struck...

Both are nice shots. The trucks may be in the shade of the loco body, but there is enough ambiant light that the details are still there. Don't let the rejection get you down.

Somedays I get the best of both worlds. My partner, Deuce, and I get to sit trackside between calls. This shot was taken this morning by a buddy who is also a CSX engineer.

Very nice shot. I guess you can appeal it, but I wouldn't crop it any closer. The scrub grass and dirt road add to the shot. The side lighting and curve make the shot, and allowing the train to...

I have read some on-line reviews. The lens gets above average marks, and is considered good for its price. I was hoping for some first hand knowledge from Canon users here.

Canon lens question

I'm thinking of getting a Canon 28-135IS lens to use with my Rebel Ti and D20. How would you Canon users that have used one, rate this lens.
Thanks

Nice shot, and with living breathing railroad people too. Kind of nice to see day to day activities, even if just a crew change. I like the bold color also.
