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.

Suggestions:

- 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.
