At least one study concluded that dislike of asparagus, brussels sprouts, and broccoli is more than preference, it is genetic. I like that study.

You're quite welcome. Nice canyon effect, with some of the reflections preserved! :)

Too much of the building at left IMO. Something like this, perhaps?

Perhaps this wider view of the area will help set the scene. Obviously Mount Hood will loom closer in a telephoto view.

Easily! Saved the photo to any folder and right-clicked to view 'properties'.
Then 190mm x the 1.6 crop factor for a Canon EOS = 304 equivalent.

It seems clear (IMO) that he exposed for the glint. I tried shadow recovery on it with disastrous results. Be that as it may, I have no problem faving it!

Modelers perhaps? I rarely paid much attention to freight cars unless they were old or unusual in some way.

2400+ views for a steel boxcar is pretty remarkable! :shock:

Sorry to disagree, but the horizon is not reliable for level (except for large bodies of water). The photo is "falling over" unlevel, and it's surprising that the screener missed it.

Renton: Yes!

Finding my own stuff? Great, as long as the credit line is intact! I found a couple on Pinterest- they send me lots of updates, so I spend a fair amount of time there.

Silhouettes against the evening sky do fine here, but the opportunities to shoot them in the East are somewhat limited.

Here they are after double rounds of shadow recovery. The second one probably needs significant trimming of the left side. Will these find favor here? Maybe.

Oh, and if the second was mine, I...

Some might think that such buildings are "cutting edge". :roll:

Did they really have a choice? Stand still on the internet, and you risk getting run over.

I do like the recent move to large photos (but still detest the obnoxious large watermarks)!

Maybe it's too similar, too soon to your recently discussed and accepted shot. Will they take a vertical of this one? I would wait a while, but it's up to you.
