CSX Q463-15 at Hamlet

Away shots are generally not accepted here, unless they're meets, glints, or dramatic in some fashion. That said, I don't really see anything exciting about this photograph. It's back lit, suffers from poor quality (maybe just poor because of the hi-resolution version you uploaded and the compression).

My computer monitor tends to view everything dark.

With that said, this appears to be very dark. Especially the left side of the photo. You might want to chop a chunk off of the left and go tighter toward the locomotives.

I know "going away" shots are frequently rejected...but the good ones are accepted from time to time. I think this is has possibilities. It just needs some work in my opinion.:-D

One other note. It looks back lit. May have worked better if you were on the other side of the tracks.

Chase & I were typing at the same time and I agree with him. It is back lit. Can you re-shoot this one?

Dont see anything overly interesting with this picture. A tight going away angle in backlit high sun.

troy12n 05-14-2010 10:14 PM

no way, going away, bad lighting, not interesting

Hamlet is enough rail traffic that you don't have to upload a back lit, dark, going away shot from there. Should be enough trains coming into Hamlet or going out of Hamlet in good sun for you to shoot.

It's very, very dull. There's little contrast in the scene, and that just doesn't work. If the line is east-west at this point, a glint shot might look fairly good because of the light poles further on, but I wouldn't be able to say for sure until you shot that.

Amtrak 80 clears Fetner Jct. at Cary, NC

please resize your images!
Your just making it an annoyance for people to look at them.
Foamers: No
NS: with the right cropping has a decent chance
SpamTrack: level it, not the most interesting shot but atleast you got the SOU whistle post in there.

stevenmwelch 05-16-2010 12:57 AM

you: "what do you think?"

me: "I don't think.. I went to a California public school"

Honestly, they have no chance.

The members above are a lot more experienced than i am and are correctbut i had a go anyway,my thoughts only.Picture quality on ns and foamers not the best.

If you know those guys, next time you see them, tell them not to stand in the gauge. As for you, perhaps looking through the database can tell you if you think those shots have a chance. And, yes, please resize.
