I can play later with the exposure after I get an acceptable crop.

I am using my new found skill posting attachments thanks to JT's tips!

Looks like you really wanted the top of that hill on the left but forgot to let the train move much further through the shot. Hope you have a subsequent frame.

I do have one, but I don't recall if I have the complete tree to the left of the knob. BTW, the view from the top of the knob is terrific! A little scary to climb but I had to do it since I was there and Mike Danneman said he climbed it so that clinched it for me!

So do you not think I can get an acceptable crop from the image I used?

I actually think it looks great but to appease RP maybe a sliver off the left and a bit off the top.

Sure, ditch the knob, crop top and left significantly, standard wedgie. Not sure that it gets in given no light on the train.

Sadly, it looks like you got cloud F'd. Poor lighting might be your next rejection.

I think what would be the best option, is if you were to have a shot taken a few seconds later.

I have to agree with Jim on this, you are going to want to fix that for sure.

Thumbs down

Submitted the next frame as Janusz suggested. Got a poor lighting hit. If only I had the BNSF heritage unit in the lead! IMO, I think the lighting is good even if the sun is not shining directly. The reflective lighting from the hills is good.

My zoom-pan of the rear DPU also was hit with poor lighting and common power. Bummer

I can't think of one instance where I'd like it if a grinstein were leading. No thanks!

That's easy to fix

Lack of good light is not so easy to fix, that might be impeding him more at this point.
