Here's my take. I seriously love the first one and the exposure was spot on. I think for RP purposes, they might be looking for a little more breathing room along the right side between the train...

I can tell a fair amount of who the photographer was without looking at the name. A lot of photographers have their own styles, which to me, is good. I admit I enjoy railroad photography but I...

It looks like the largest stack is leaning a tad bit to the right. I'm guessing that's what it's being dinged for.

Ok. So I went out and tried doing headlight anticipation photos over the weekend. All I was able to get was streaks. Where did I go wrong?

Nice work Loyd! I've never been able to pull off one of the shots. How far in advance do you fire the the shutter? As soon as you see the glow of the headlight or a little before/after?

I think it looks better but the smokey area still seems a bit off. I'd say give it a shot with the adjustments you made. If rejected for hue, then I'd say hit smokey area with a brush and make it a...

I really like the photo. It looks a bit warm though, at least to me. Try adjusting the temperature a bit. Still a cool shot!

I messed around with the leveling because if I rotated CW, something didn't look right. If I rotated it CCW, something didn't look right. I settled on the yellow stripe of paint on the frame.

Thanks! Jim's has a better blurred background with the loco sharp. Mine was at 1/30. I just need to lay off the caffeine so I can hold the camera steady. LOL
