There's no denying that chasing the equivalent of a smoking freight car is pretty worthless. Just don't hate the RR for it considering their past givings to the foam world. :D

How many passenger and employee trips did UP run during the 21st century steam program timeframe? I'll hang up and listen...

Maybe if it was level, had better contrast, and portions of the clouds weren't blown out it could stand above the clutter rejection? I think the abutment is playing into it more than the bridge...

I've noticed a few of his photos are overdriven in editing (and underdriven in distortion correction). I get converging lines in a composition but this really doesn't pull me in as a viewer.

Well at least the drone is closer to Earth than the normal offering from them. :D

I've heard they were up for sale a while back. The leaser infiltration already began in earnest with them test driving / returning / and finally settling on some junk from GATX.

From a 'me' standpoint, I don't see any reason why this shot doesn't deserve a spot here. Maybe needs a small color balance shift towards blue but overall it is processed fine and offers a good...

I can almost see them with my eyes closed on both my work and home monitor. It's about as subtle as the 'boned big boy' edit from a few weeks ago.



You mean the drone photos right? 90% of...

Nothing hides from my trio of 24 inchers at work.



I'll probably hate the fence once the shadows are corrected too :)

The PCA's are winning with under 20 likes at times (which suggests low amounts of votes) and the TO24s are predetermined like a wrestling match. Where has my RP gone? :D
