Post your favorite shot so far this year!
Being that we are already on the downhill side of 2008 I thought it would be interesting to see people's favorite shot they've taken so far this year. I'm limiting it to one shot so pick wisely! ;)

After much deliberation, I pick...


I was very excited to finally get a sunrise shot like this one.

My favorite of '08 will probably come from my Chicago trip coming up in a few weeks, but for now here's this year's favorite:

Really? An H2 Dash 9? :confused:

Still eligible for PCA nominations ;)

It's a scene I'd be willing to take up modeling for!

JRMDC 07-15-2008 09:58 PM

Good shots have been few and far between this year, but at least that makes my choice easy! :)


Andrew Blaszczyk (2) 07-15-2008 10:29 PM

That was the hardest decision I've had to make it a while! It was a close race between my top three most popular of '08.

I guess I will say this one, mainly because it is doubtful I will have a chance to do anything like this for a long time, especially while being on NS's tracks. I'm also amazed it came out, as this engine did not exactly give a smooth ride, but I shoved the camera against the window and used my foot to try to keep it from moving..

I'm pretty partial to my Colebrook, BC storm light shot, but I haven't edited it to the point I could submit it yet!

stevenmwelch 07-15-2008 11:21 PM

Ohh, I'll break down and have to say my favorite from 2008 soooo far is...



travsirocz 07-15-2008 11:43 PM


I guess this one but it was a tough choice. There are things I don't like about this photo also.

F40PH271 07-16-2008 12:52 AM

Some awesome shots posted so far.

Geez! No way...

travsirocz 07-16-2008 01:09 AM


I just added to the remarks section but I forgot to add before that you can see the East bound DPU in the photo.

SDavey 07-16-2008 01:43 AM

Here is mine....


James Gardiner 07-16-2008 01:58 AM

This one by far


Mgoldman 07-16-2008 02:03 AM

Wow, that is a tough one.

It's been a rather good year and I must thank a bunch of my peers on RP for their insight, creativity and conseqently for raising the bar that wasn't even there before.


The contestants are W&W, LS&I (pace), PM (pan), MILW (B&W's or possibly sunset) and Amtrak (night). Considering I'm my own worst critic, this is an interesting turn of events. I'll have to say, under the gun, [photoid=221040] the photo that changes character depending on the amount of ambient light while viewed making it unique out of the bunch.

Looking through my shots for this year brought a little surprise to me, I've only had 13 accepted so far this year! Of those, 9 are Caltrain photos. Oy I really have to get off the Peninsula a little bit before summer is over. My favorite so far this year is also my latest, I wish now that I had parked my motorcycle on the other side of the street and made it more a part of the scene, it could have been more of a railfan's ride type of shot then. I have a "shots to get" list that is getting longer and longer but the smokey California skies and soaring fuel costs haven't helped any.
