Default Do you want to get rocked?

I find I'm having trouble judging my own shots lately. I was very hopeful when I saw this train sitting down the tracks and went to a spot I've wanted to gt a good shot at for a while. The sun was sweet when I first saw the train. But in my mind, the light is about five minutes past sweet when it came into view. So try for RP or leave it on Flickr?

I really like it, I think if it was 5 minutes earlier the sun may have disappeared into the black but here it looks perfect. Nice and crisp too.

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

The light is perhaps a touch soft for RP purposes, but it isn't at all a bad photo. You do need some CW rotation, though.

It's unlevel, otherwise, I like it, it's fixable I think.

Went back to an earlier shot that I liked better as it showed more of the side of the lead unit. Also rotated .25% CW. Got three Bad Color rejects, so I am racking this up to beig sun effed.

Well, the color IS a little off IMO. The brick tower building and the hoppers don't look right. Maybe too much yellow, I'm not sure. Nice picture though. Nice location.
