Now that you mention it, I do recall this incident. What I don't recall are the details. Did someone steal your photo from an RP-size image and make that big sign? I'll bet it looks great up...

If I had to put an obnoxious watermark like that on all of my photos, I think I'd give up photography. Images are to be enjoyed, and having the primary subject contaminated with that sort of thing...

I like it! It almost looks as if the train is illuminated by the headlights of your car. I also think the color temperature of this BNSF shot is far more pleasing to the eye than the blue/white...

Hi Kent,

So would I. Too many night shots are just too bright. Just because someone can light something with a big enough nuke, doesn't necessarily mean that the result will be pleasing to the...

The 1225 makes a great subject. Would love to get back up there and see her again. Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of this particular image. After I read your comment, I took a look at it on an...

I agree. I've been putting a small watermark on mine for the past couple of years, if only to ensure that if someone copies the image intact as a screensaver, FB page, etc, it is still clear who...

In the PoTW position on the home page, this watermark is like a giant, aerial billboard for the site. The only thing missing is the Goodyear Blimp carrying that "sign". Seriously, it's a gorgeous...

I think everyone is thinking along the same lines. The image is a little bit too dark and contrasty, to the point where there is no detail in the shadows at all. (The image as it currently exists...

Looks like it was shot at 1/100th at f/5 and ISO 20,000. The ISO used here was really extreme. Faster glass might have given the photographer some needed latitude to decrease the ISO and increase...

Not to put words in anyone's mouth, but a possible interpretation of this phrase is that the photographer used a drone because he perhaps believed the resulting image would be more popular because...

My only (hopefully constructive) input on this....and many other "drone" shots....is that the shooting angles are often a bit extreme for my tastes. Any sight line to the subject that is more than...

Hi Daniel,

Just because I don't post everything I shot from a charter or an event doesn't mean that others won't do it. I try not to bore the audience and I use the view-counts to tell me when...

That's interesting. The Nikon System is a little more flexible. Any of Nikon's recent lenses, DX or FX will mount on any F-mount camera, DX or FX. An FX lens used on a DX camera will result in a...

I'm not a Canon shooter, but I believe that the T5 has an APS-C (crop) sensor and the 6D is a full-frame camera. If you have lenses that were designed for a crop sensor, they will not work...

Yes, and I enjoy seeing them. Not being much inclined to visit some of the exotic places that you and he travel to (such as Iran :eek:), the photos you post are probably the only...

No, no tripods there. It was run and gun. I was a participant on a charter that day, which would be departing out of Cumbres Pass later in the morning. This train was bringing one of several cuts...

Unless you're regularly going to be shooting in bad light, I would not rush out to replace it. That is a reasonably recent sensor, albeit a DX (crop) sensor. I've not shot a D3300, so I can't tell...

The East Broad Top Railroad & Coal Company was a narrow gauge coal hauler that operated in Western PA from the 1870s until the mid-1950s. It was unusual because narrow gauge railroads...

Hi Joe,

The EBT hasn't run on that stretch since the 1950s. I suspect that in that spot, the train probably never will come. For it to run at all, we have to hope that Bill Gates or Warren...
