I would agree on the plastic floor mat. It obviously protects the carpet while allowing visitors to see car's interior, but for a photo, it doesn't do much for the ambience. Also would have been nice if that had been the Leviathan outside vs. a locomotive built much later. Not much you could have done about either of those things, Dave.


- A wider lens would have been better. I now carry the Nikkor 20mm f/1.8G with me wherever I go (unless I have the heavier 16-35mm f/4 VR with me) There are times when 24mm just can't take it all in.

- Using some bounce flash (dialed down) might have allowed you to expose for the open door, while keeping the rest of the cabin decently exposed. I nearly always have an SB-600 handy, with some Rogue Flash Benders for just such situations.

My RP stuff is here.

Link to my Flickr Albums. Lots of Steam Railroad stuff there from all over the US.
