Well, you got it in finally and I actually hate to say it but I think it looks better this way. I never really noticed that light standard distant right before but it must have been playing on my subconscious, and now that it's plumb the whole thing looks more "right" (for lack of a better term) even though it was probably just a matter of perspective distortion in your previous attempts.

Yes, I think you're right. I was worried it was a bit high sun from this angle, but the screener has spoken!

I read through this thread, was thoroughly confused, took a pill, and now I'm going to bed. I'm not qualified to comment on leveling issues. Take it from here, Jim...

I would have fixed the distortion, but that's just me.

And apparently your name is spelled wrong, could you go back in time and fix that.

The important thing here is: do you feel respected now?

I wish I could! It probably would have made things a lot easier in my life.

More than I'm willing to admit in a public setting.

Spend 70 bucks and get a real copy of Elements. You will be very happy.

Not sure why you were so set on this image. I am not one to shoot any train that is sitting still, let alone a static one in such an unphotogenic location.

The lofty answer is because there are not many shots of this engine on rp. The more accurate answer is stubbornness.

I fail to see how what you do correlates to what any of us would do?

It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG
