Default New location???

Greetings,

Can this location be used for getting an acceptance in? I tried 3 yesterday and nothing worked. Any thoughts???

The brush in front of the trains is killing it for me. but some hacking would fix that.

I don't see a problem with the location - yes, get the weeds.

But these shots:

1: you are aiming too much down and to the right, putting the train too much to the upper left
2: common power and cloudy, not much you can do
3: see 2, but also note that you do have light on the train 2-4 cars back - had that light been on the engines you would have been fine

I like the first one the best, because of the power, but I'd do some cropping adjustments. First, I'd give the image more room on the top, to show off more of the train, instead of immediately grabbing your attention to the locomotive. By then, your subject may be close to being centered. If that's the case, I'd take some room off of the bottom.

JRMDC,

Thanks for looking. Light is tough for myself during the winter months...Trains usually leave early and return late. Not much traffic mid-day it seems. I believe you are saying I needed the sun higher in sky to get the light on the engines I have on the cars...Only problem is no trains came until 5:40 in the evening this day...Thanks again.

Chase,

Should I show more of the trees & brush? At this location you cannot see any more of the train by less of a crop....Thanks for looking.

Yeah, give the image a bit more room on the top. This won't show any more of the train, but it'll atleast keep you from having the tops of the railcars cut off. If the subject then appears to be too centered, try removing some from the bottom.

I wouldn't wait that long. As soon as the snow melts, get out there and cut it before it blooms. Much easier that way.

That situation is perfect for you. Shooting in the middle of the day should be avoided. You just need to move to a different spot so that you can use the light effectively.

Shooting in the middle of the day should only be avoided from about late April to mid September.

I would do it right now, but Virginia is far away.

Is this the spot you're shooting? If so, the best time to get good light there will be late afternoon in the summer, when the sun is in the northwest.

Chase,

I understand what your saying. The first link has the tops cut off, but the next 2 do not. I hope to tidy the place up and will try to zoom out upon having done so. Thanks
