Hi all,

Finally had first opportunity since owning the camera to shoot trains with SUN!!!
Had pretty good luck early in the morning then it quickly ran out as did not see anything the rest of the day.
I have a couple that seemed to fit the bill here, or at least to me and here is the outcome:

Unlevel...

Dust spots & Grain...

Attached are what I think are the fixes?

Also, still being limited to 2 a day do I have to wait til after Midnight to resend the corrections?


Thanks all

2 one is best, watch the shadows, that may get them rejected to. Forget the first shot I think. Yea don't rush, look at the photo and think what can i do better the next time i go out.

Perhaps the ballast is a white rock?

The 2nd shot might need the horizon levelled a bit as well, the loco is on an angle however the building behind is not.

Seems pretty white to the naked eye as well. CSX has been recently adding fresh new ballast in several areas around here.

Should I have taken a darker exposure and then lightened it up in PP?

Here is an example of how much brighter the new ballast is:
