Looks like "Similar to previous image" is no longer being used - no doubt due to the recent popularity of "bad crop".

I arrived early at that bridge and staked out my spot. I was surprised Dale and Andrew were able to get out of the creek and dried in time to get their shots. I figured it wasn't right to push them over again and at that point I needed to set up for the shot.

Aside from the line's terminus at Lahaska and the station, that is likely the most popular spot on the line. Could use a good triming. Wonder what it would look like lit up at night with flashes?

It may be the same spot, but there are three different angles. Andrew shot from creek level, including more of the creek and the whole brick house. Mitch, you stood in the middle of the road bridge, and cut off part of the brick house. Dale was more toward the end of the road bridge, near the crossing signal, going with a head-on angle that showed the train behind and eliminated the brick house altogether.

I agree. Indeed, the differences between the three images is rather striking and quite interesting.

I'm glad to see all 3 get on, even if they were all with-in 10 feet of each other for the very reason you state, John. Different angles, perspectives and camera settings. This, to me, is one of the things I enjoy and benefit most from on RP - the what if's and what may have been.

I wish more RP'rs would submit, especially after a charter or event, rather then "holding them for later" as many seem inclinded to do. To me, that's like going out for some drinks and talking about the latest "Jaws" movie. If you got 'em, let's have a look! I've posted a few and will post a few more tomorrow.

I agree with Mitch. Glad to see all three get on. I'm an Engineer, not an artist, so I am definitely compositionally challenged. Even though I'm not a natural, I am convinced that people like me can develop an eye for composition by looking at lots of pictures, especially multiple angles on the same scene. Before I go on trips, I will often spend hours looking at RP to get an idea of what others have done at the location I'm about to visit. I find that it really helps a lot.

And guess what? Someone who's shopping for a photo for their magazine, brochure or calendar probably appreciates having a choice of angles on a given scene, especially one as pretty as the one depicted in these photos.

It's no wonder that this place is so popular.

Nice, but I was thinking maybe something like
this where the engine is captured on a regular run, verses a charter, and at speed. Thanks for asking, though. ; )

Wow, that is actually really cool seeing all three together and seeing the differences not only in the angles but styles.

You photographed the same train in the same spot, one in the day and one at night, on the same day...yet you listed two different location names.

John, I corrected the order you posted them in. I think they work better together as a set this way:

Even if they WERE the same, the screeners can't remember all of the stuff they've seen, even in the past couple days! It just doesn't work like that. Also, it could have been 3 different screeners! I'm waiting to see two of the same shots get top 24 hours next to each other!

Add one more to the mix, I took this on Tuesday before I saw the thread. I saw a bunch of footprints going down to the stream, now I know whose they were!
