Default Gallery: Static Displays

I know there isn't one on this, and I hadn't seen a gallery in a blue moon (haha, tonight is one, for the record), so here goes nothing.

This is by far the most impressive I've seen (throught photographs).

I've got lots of these. I'm afraid it's more of the subject that makes these appealing to me.

For the record, this car/caboose (or whatever - they call it the "Canyon View Camp Car") is not a static display, it makes the trip up from the Soo every week and back again at the end of the week, during the entire Tour Train season. This is so they can clean it out for the next campers, empty the sewage tank, refill the fresh water tank, service the genny, etc. Thanks for including it in your thread tho!
I do have a couple of static shots I can add:
Wasn't really on display per se, but stored in public view at a park until its sad demise;

Ahhh, the good ol' using RAW as a crutch for a photographer's shortcomings. If it's sitting still and you're shooting digital, couldn't you just keep changing the settings until you got the best exposure?

I wasn't using RAW as a crutch, merely saying in hindsight that it would make it possible now for me to do some editing that I can't because I only have the jpeg. Would it have been better to get the exposure spot on while I was there? Sure. Did I know as much about technique then as I do now? No. Was it sitting still? Yes. Did I have all the time in the world to shoot it? No, but that's another story.

Thanks for pointing out "a photographer's shortcomings", btw. Pity we weren't all born experts.

RAW is the equivalent to a digital negative holding all of the data captured by your camera where as JPEG is a digital file containing most of the data captured by your camera. I would therefore say it would be a short coming of the photographer to discard such information, especially as it relates towards attaining the best possible final image.

With a JPEG, you camera is simply by-passing you and your more powerful computer /software combination and simply processing the file itself using built in software that was designed to achieve the best result most of the time.

Not only that, but should you decide to tweak your image, recall with a JPEG you will be working with a second generation image subject to further degradation.

The fact that you can attain better detail at times with a digital file does not make the use of a digital camera a crutch for those unable to get such detail properly with film. Nor should it be considered a crutch to use RAW rather then JPEG.

Back to the topic of "Static Displays", I'd say this would count, in more ways then one:

Not necessarily....

I expect one could blast away in the burst mode until the scene cooperated or, you lost the moment. Which ever comes first. Composition is 80% of the shot, IMHO.

I prefer to concentrate on composition and the "message" the shot will communicate to the viewer. Exposure issues are somewhat correctable; all the post-processing in the world will not correct for blown composition.

I believe you missed the fact that it is a static display (no need for burst mode and plenty of time to set up a composition without losing the "moment"). Moving around to try say three different compositions, bracketing each with three settings, would probably take just about a minute. If you have time to set the shot up once, you have the time to bracket your exposure. RAW shouldn't be an excuse for not doing that.
