Overnight, I received a boat-load of acceptance notices as well as comment notices, which were clearly retroactive for several days. Not sure if my e-mail system was just catching up with reality,...

I just noticed that I am no longer getting the e-mails that tell me a picture has been accepted, or the ones that notify me of comments. This JUST started happening. I have such e-mails from as...

Hi Dave,

I don't see any significant noise on my display. I do think the image could use a bit more highlight reduction, as there are a few areas that look overexposed to me. I tend to shoot a...

Hi John,

I hope my original post didn't sound too harsh, but it was just obvious to me that the screen you were working from wasn't giving you a realistic view of your edits. Hey, I edited on a...

Yes indeed. I highly suggest taking a hard look at the monitor you are using to edit these images. As I look at your portfolio, the majority of them are overexposed, and not just slightly. They...

The real advantage of a new body is ISO. If the person is only going to shoot on nice, sunny days, an old body might just work fine, but on a cloudy day, an old 40D will never hold a candle to a...

I'll take a different approach than most. I suggest treating yourself to a new camera body before you invest in lenses. That 40D was current in 2008. That's 13 years out of date. Sensors have...

Hi Mitch,

Now looking at the images on a calibrated display, they look very similar to what I see on my phone and on my IPad, which is to say that the halo is yellow near the sun and tapers to...

Hi Mitch,

I will try to look at the image on a calibrated display tonight. As I look at it on my work laptop, my IPad and my phone.....which is also a Samsung Galaxy variant (5G), the halo around...

Isn't it annoying when the same image looks different on every screen you use to view it? It's especially annoying when it looks different on a color-calibrated display than it does on an IPad or...

The number boards do look slightly blurry on my display. They're not bad, but they're just not obviously sharp.....soft is probably a better word. When I am looking at my own locomotive pictures,...

The updated edits are getting closer. The shadow reduction in the second one still looks overdone. Shadows are OK. The goal is to make it look like the eye sees it, which means you should see a...

Yes, and at least on my display, all of them have too much shadow reduction and too much foreground. I think that with a little editing, all of these would be decent images. I have no idea...

I would probably tighten it up all around. The composition is not terrible as it is, but you could stand to lose some real estate on the left, top, bottom and even a tad on the right. Use the...

This is a difficult image, Dave. YES, there are a fair number of things obscuring the train. These include terrain and even the locomotive plume. But that's not the real problem. The problem is...

I use the 3:5 crop a LOT. There are plenty of images with a ton of featureless foreground or sky that benefit immensely from using that crop. I don't recall how well the To24 or SC slots on the...

Wow, that's actually a pretty nice image. I am a bit surprised they didn't overlook any minor compositional flaws and just accept it. It's far more interesting than the endless parade of...

A few quick thoughts:

Trestles with railings are probably not going to fly with a close-up shot like this, particularly if the power is common. I've seen trestles like this get in where the...

I don't picture it as felonious violation of the "Rule of Thirds." If it were mine, I would probably trim off the very top (most featureless) portion of the sky and perhaps a tad bit on the left. ...

Dave,

My suggestion is to get some more side angle on the train. Show some running gear on the locomotive. While you've rendered this image about as well as it can be rendered, it is dark and...

While not backlit, the sun angle isn't great, especially on the cab. The unit numbers are difficult to read. I'm just guessing that they didn't have a canned rejection reason that was perfectly...
