Post Master's OCS Problems....

As some of you may know, the NS Fs made their way down to Augusta, GA for the 2011 Master's Golf Tournament on Thursday. Also some of you guys may know what kind of crappy weather we were experiencing up until Friday. Anyways I wanted to get at least one shot of the OCS on RP since the only other shot is from PA. I've gotten the Common Power/Cloudy rejection and I just wanted a few opionions on the shots I have which can be found here:

I rarely go out in crappy weather for anything, but the Fs are an exception. And if I had to pick a 'Top 5' then these would be it:

Opinions?

Thanks

I think the street running one (2473314) is a winner. Just make sure you get the sharpness as good as you can. The street seems to "match" the era of the train, like time has stood still to some extent.

You made a valiant effort with the series, although I think the other shots have a problem with the exposure of the sky. But street running through trees like that is good stuff.

Trust me...I looked at that damn puddle and if there wasn't the NS Trainmaster from CLT and the area Trainmaster's weren't sitting right there I might have went for it, but I didn't want to try my luck even though this bum did... BTW I was standing on a public sidewalk the whole time.

The second street running shot and the last shot posted stand a chance. A couple others may work, but it would depend on the screener.

The second bridge shot is cool, but I wish the nose wasn't obstructed.

I feel your pain, Ant. I've been planning my shots around Columbia for months. And, of course, all of my plans had it being perfect weather and the river being low enough to shoot the bridge shot. So, not only is the weather rotten, but the train ran too late for a sunny day shot at the Riverwalk, but it also would have been on a day when I would have been at work (if it weren't for my fast a** pulse rate, etc.)

So I had to be content with this one shot

NS Office Car Special

And, to be honest, I had planned to keep the camera in the bag and just watch and listen to it pass until I saw the MoW workers.

I need to get up there and shoot this line some. It's only 7 hours away

The last couple of times I have tried, I got totally skunked. Need to hurry before the heat gets unbearable. Anyone know when they plan to run back to PA?
