Don't forget that when things like that happen, you can stick around and take another shot in the exact same shot after the truck has passed and then combine the two images in Photoshop.

How does this get by the screeners? Look at their PhotoID numbers. One would have showed up immediately before the other.

I personally like the shot, but the one thing I think the screeners might be holding against it is the ceiling. Since the arch of the ceiling isn't centered with the engine it does give it a little...

Black and White Processing

Does anyone have any tips on processing steam photos in black and white? What works and what doesn't? What kind of look is RP.net typically looking for in a B&W image?

How many times do you have to raise it and lower it while making small adjustment to the ball head to make sure you have your image framed right? Seems like that would kind of be a pain unless you...

I'm actually quite interested in getting one, but I don't really know what to look for or where to begin with it.

Are you shooting in jpeg? That last image has the look of a jpeg that's been pushed too far.

Even with a closer crop it's going to get a poor aesthetic quality rejection. The lighting is pretty unworkable.

You can use Canon or Nikon glass on pretty much every Sony mirrorless - just as long as you have a decent adapter.

That would put the engine smack dab in the center of the frame though. I feel like that'd be a more awkward composition than the current one. However; I've never been able to figure out the ideal...

The blacks in the nose are totally crushed. It looks a little weird when paired with the unnaturally light side of the engine. The contrast is kind of all over the place too. The tree, for example,...

Plenty of shots make it on that have the wheels obscured by the platform. Let it sit for a month or two and submit it again.

You should have waited until the train was farther to the right in the frame. Also it seems like screeners only give one rejection reason at a time.
