IS THERE some way to shoot from the other side of what looks like a little pond, which would give you a more "lateral" look? I would guess that the pond in the foreground and those nice hills in the...

Those bright lights at the top are dominating the scene. What are they? If they are part of the landscape they are going to be difficult to deal with, unless you just exclude or crop them, which...

That makes it sound like you only shot ONE picture. There is all sorts of natural beauty there. That scene would have supported dozens of pictures.

I think your rejected ones are too "busy" ie too many distractions. The one accepted is much "cleaner" with among other things less clutter on the ground. The storage container/shed on the left and...

Tremendous amount of good rolling stock here, consisting mostly of hopper cars, with a tremendous amount of uniformity which has a elegance all its own, indicating the nature of the business. IMO it...

C

Clear sky is a detriment here and hard to deal with as always.


The bridge is sort of nice, like the old Romans invented so maybe if you had let the train get a lot further out on the bridge...

I like the stuff on the right better than what is on the left. What is that white thing, something on wheels or a tank or what?

More of the tender would be nice. I have a general preference for seeing more of the mechanical details of the running gear and this leads me to use more flash provided stuff on the ground does not...

I can't see any problem with the color. Things subjectively seem to get "compressed" on the right, with lots of open air on the left. Maybe if a person could move more to the left and get trees...

I agree about Ken. He has to talk about LOTS of cameras to drum up donations I guess. I was thinking keep the black down when I mentioned zooming and cropping. I tend to push the ISO anyway, with...

With this much blue sky, it is tough to do much. I would try a totally shot that did not depend on the sky looking good or simply wait for another day.

Corn looks a little thin too, like not much rain, a dry year. So there is a bluff back there. Is the river behind you? So some of us MO guys are trying to figure where you are.

Your pixel counts are getting pretty low at 211 kb. That suggests to me that you are losing pixels from "cropping." I use what I call "Zoom & Grab" which uses the full resolution of the monitor,...

For "cropping" without data loss I like these two programs. Be sure to fill the screen with what you want and then "grab" it. Then it does not feel so much like "cropping."

Lots to work with here.

For openers I would declare the locomotive a primary point of interest. The tender car and the activity (and people) around it would be secondary points of interest. The tree is a definite...
