Default Top of the day !

The 611 is a very nice engine BUT ....

Cloudy day + Backlit + Foreground clutter

= Top of the day ......

It's a US thing.

So happy she's back.

The above are all concerns of the screeners, not of the viewers.

OOPS, the screener didn't reject the shot!

I am already sick of the 611

It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

Gorgeous engine, but I wish the shot was a bit more zoomed out.

It's a news shot so rules are relaxed.
Since I am a steam guy, I am digging it.
I liked the heritage diesel units, do not get me wrong.
But 611 pins my fun meter and will as long as it's in steam.

Looks like it was a stationary shot. Too bad the guy didn't take several exposures and do some mild HDR. (and zoom out a bit.)
