Those speckles you are referring to are bugs. The face of the engine was plastered with them, and I did make a note to the screener when submitting.

Thank you for the feedback. Again, I'm not totally hell bent over this frame but when the rejection said too much noise, it left my head scratching.

The vibrance can be muted since I shot in RAW...

Was on a hiatus for a bit from contributing to the site. I went out this weekend and wanted to document the opening of CT Rail. I'm not that hell bent on this image, but what I...

Kyle, I am going to agree with the comment about the color balance of the image and the sky being blown out. If those two issues were resolved I think it may have been able to get on.

Yes Jim, I was kicking myself after reviewing the photos from the very limited time I had up where I was. Not getting too specific, the access point to get to the clock is in one of the most secure...

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

I did dodge the foliage a bit on the left by +.30 in some areas (the fast moving clouds blocked the sun as the train came south), however as someone said the...

I purchased a 13" Macbook Retina last year and have no regrets. It's also very convenient using it in the field if you have to edit photos in a pinch.

It was shot in raw, the engineer threw the brights on once he rounded the bend since I was at the grade crossing. Thanks for the feedback.

Thanks for the feedback.

I intentionally wanted the shutter to be slow to construe motion, in this case the train was doing 30mph over the bridge. It definitely took a few warmups before I had...

Thanks for the feedback. I wasn't going to argue about getting it accepted but whether the idea was cool or in this case a flop.

I knew this was going to be a toss up with getting approved but am seeking some other opinions. While going through the trunk in-between trains, I saw a unique vantage point using my 100-400mm...

I forgot to mention, the 70-200 I recommended was the non-IS version, which used through B&H can be fetched around $600. Factor in a used 7D, and you can find one with a grip included for $550ish,...

Yes, a 7D will absolutely be better than the Rebel series. I've owned the 7D for 4 years before departing with it. Also, don't hesitate to plunge for a used one. I've noticed a lot of them are being...

I would forget the Rebel line and opt for the 7D as many users have said. It's in a league by itself and you can easily find one in the mid $400, or mid $500 for a low actuation count. The 7D has...

I like it too, Dave. Perhaps if there was a way to give the motive power more "pop" in the picture it may increase the odds of getting the nod in acceptance.
