That field or any on that side of the tracks. As the guy put it to me while we were waiting, cross the tracks and your trespassing on either the property he leases or on railroad property.

Not a fan of this shot or his work in general. How something like this gets accepted here used to be a mystery to me.

I've been stuck on 157 photos in the database and it's been a struggle getting past it for some reason. I think a timeout on my part is in order.

I appreciate the honesty. I really liked it but that's a matter of personal interest. Like you said, it's one for the personal archives. Thanks for the reply!

I think if done right, flash photography at night can be a nice alternative. To me it’s relatively new. I’ve managed to get a stationary train at night using a couple external strobes. I never had...

Looks like it's leaning to the left. If you're using Photoshop, I'd put a grid over the photo and rotate it clockwise until it was level with the taller building toward the middle.

I've used them for wedding photography and have been pleased. Never tried them on rail photos because, well, I don't have that many (and use my portable strobes). If it's a decent deal, give it a...

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...

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.
