Sometimes, the best images look like crap coming out of the camera, especially if you're looking at Adobe's attempt to speak Nikon. But with a little (or a lot of) editing, the results become...

Once you figure out the changes that you typically make to those awful-looking, camera raw previews to get them looking decent, you will want to build those changes into a...

I think Joseph, Doug and Loyd have pretty well nailed it. Neither of these photos really looks like an accident photo, and without that "interest", you have to ask where the "interest" is. The...

It's more than that unfortunately. Class 1s just don't want anything to do with steam locomotives or other historic equipment. They are prone to breakdowns and other issues which could quickly get...

Right. UP is the only Class 1 that operates a fleet (just one at the moment) of historic steam locomotives. They run special trains and charters from time to time. They are still promising to...

I use Lightroom most of the time. It's not that expensive ($150) and relatively intuitive. I've never had any formal training with it and consider myself relatively adept at using it.
