Default Another PAQ photo -Circus Train Loading

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...67&key=9750415

A view of RBB&B Circus Train loading "wagons" which I thought was rail related and a reasonable image showing a little tractor pulling a string of wagons and another bringing up a wagon. Certainly not unique but seems to a reasonable addition of something a little different On the negative, I guess you can say it is "just Circus Cars".

Without having read your description in this thread, I may have never noticed the tractor, dark against a dark background. Doesn't show action as well as you think it does. Looks like a night roster shot of freight cars.

Tried a different view, tractor up front but still no elephants so no good.

That's not a different view, that is a minor adjustment, essentially the same scene from pretty much the same angle.

As a separate issue, you want to keep a watch out for junk creeping in from the edges. Here, you have what appears to be part of the backside of a street sign appearing on the right edge.

I agree, that is worth a rejection right there. Forgot to clone it out when the correction to the original was rejected as being too tight and I widened it out and the sign crept in.

I still thought the original was worthwhile railroad oriented scene but time to move on.

Thanks for comments , Bob

Difficult to do under the given lighting conditions, but I wonder if a telemash-type approach would have been a better option here for "conveying" the loading process.

I guess you mean a more head on photo, I could have gone to an 85mm but to get the angle I would have had to put tripod up on the street or stand in the street hand held but then I thought I would loose the detail of the wagons and the tail end and....???

I did try a very tight crop to isolate the action but that was rejected as to close to the edges.

One of the problems I guess is I thought it was neat to watch but I guess my efforts to convey that failed. I came back in the AM for night
existing light departure photos which were also rejected. Their show ends around 3:00PM and in 12 hours everything is packed up. These wagons are all loaded towed to loading site, loaded in exact order. The passenger cars are loaded up, train parts put together and the show is off to next stop.
