Yes, it needs to be rotated -0.6 CCW. I think it's too warm as well. I reduced color temperature -27 with Windows editor. The branches may or may not be a problem.

Good information above! I have not been able to use my very capable Canon all-in-one since my Vista-running laptop died.

In some ways, little has changed. Few fans shot late steam/early diesel in color. In movies, it was rare to see 16mm footage rather than 8mm.

As for phone stuff, considering what "equipment" they...

Today's large railroads have homogenized rosters, highway-style signals, and few buildings with any sort of character remaining. So, IMO, photos need something extra to be of interest. Great light....

I like that it shows the cars rather than just light streaks. The Christmas decorations are icing on the cake. I'd fave it if it was on RP. :)

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

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.

300mm full frame equivalent in Chris' shot, so the mountain "looms". I recall reading that if you shot this scene with a normal lens and cropped it, the photos would have the same perspective.

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

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.
