Im not sure why, I guess I just don't really have a clear picture in my mind of how the grab bars are angle and placed on the locomotive. I don't know much about trains I just like to take pictures...

Jim I'll be honest I looked at the grab bars but it's hard for me to use them as a basis point. The exif I show for the 1st shot for the original time was 13:10:29 which would be 1:10 and then it...

Jim I still disagree I think the sun is at the back of the photographer but also off to the left. I will agree that sun is probably not as high as I originally thought but I don't think its as low...

Ween that is a tough to call the light is certainly not soft but you did a good job handling the light and exposing the photo correctly. I think its a good shot.

I think it also helps that the...

Jim 3 hours from sunset is a long way in my opinion. If the sun was lower in the sky there would be a shadow cast on the right side which there is not. I guess we just have different opinions on...

Jim no way I'm 99% positive these were shot at high sun. Even look at the back of the locomotive where the part kind of extends off the locomotive. Under that part there is a shadow. That shadow...

Ween yes when the sun it high in the sky the light is harsh. I guess I get this from my landscape photo background but I belive the best shots are taken at sunrise and sunset.

Jim I understand the idea of shadows and my photo does have a shadow just a more subtle shadow. Maybe I instead of terrible exposed I should have said shot in harsh light.
