Photo #1 is a nice human interest shot and it certainly is rail related. B&W emphasizes the "back in time" look. I'd try again and hope for a screener that isn't an idiot this time.

#2 is really...

I'm glad the screeners at least let Ron's in. Ron gets more composition points!

Mike's shot is better! We were bunched up pretty tight and I was kneeling in the front row, so the truck hides the Union Pacific lettering on the tender in my shot. Mike must have been in the row...

Well Jim, you got the loco more into the rule of thirds space, but you had to cut off the top of the smoke plume to do it! If your point was leveling, there are about 30 vertical elements in the...

Mitch, since Chase shot at 1/25 second to streak the falling snow or rain, it's not possible for the two moving trains to not exhibit some motion blur. The one coming head on shows the least, but...

This entire discussion is why a lot of people have given up on RP. Too much concern about the technical details and not enough concern for artistic merit.

Am I the only person who liked the first shot?

If you crop to put the loco at the "rule of thirds" position you lose the interesting red building in the background. The piles of ties add interest...

To get serious for a moment, John shoots with a camera that has a 3:2 ratio, but what about someone shooting with a Hasselblaad? Their images are square. How about the 4:3 range of digital cameras?...

Sometimes you gotta break the rules. I think the second shot works as is, and remember, Chris Kilroy said so too! You need the pole on the right and the trees on the left balance the shot. Just...

I was at work when I posted my comment and didn't have access to an image editor. Here's a quick shot at what might work. The B&W idea could be good too.

Notice that Canon and Nikon are absent from the list of camera manufacturers that supports Adobe's DNG. If the two biggest players in the game are not on board, what does that tell you?

I have no idea why it is called a 3/4 view, but the term seems to come from the art world. One definition was "A view halfway between a front view and a side view." You would think that would make...

Well, so far all my PCA votes for that week are from Europe! Maybe the screener that day didn't like traction shots! At least it wasn't rejected for unlevel! ;-)

John,

The original probably is too dark, but it sure looks like a Kodachrome!

Nice, either way.

The gloomy weather sort of adds to the sadness of a last run. Thanks for posting. The #25 sure is a neat little loco. I hope she finds a good home, but it would be nicer if someone bought...
