Absolutely! I didn't get many of those shots or others onto RP for various composition reasons, but I had a GREAT time there for 2-3 hours. Although, come to think of it, I never tried to get the no-train people/shed picture in (the second one), nor the evening shot where the trains are not evident in the image but are there (third one).

I'd give it a try. The inside shots are really great!

I think RP should like this one.

Janusz, I also like the picture that features in Michael's post. If you havn't already tried it on RP then you should

WetRails, I would have stood further to the left (if possible) for the Santa Fe shot and try and get more of a "side" view to show the livery. I would also zoom in a bit and shoot slightly earlier to try and avoid having the building "growing" out of the roof of the loco.

Yes, good point. I did take some other shots of that locomotive to show the elongated "snoot" it's nicknamed for. I'll find it and post it here. Not sure how to shoot 'slightly earlier.' Can you clarify?

Thanks, you two. I may have given it a go back in the day, don't recall for sure, but I'm a lot better now at cropping and processing and I will give it one more shot, maybe mess with it tonight and submit tomorrow.

I was assuming that the train was moving towards you, but perhaps was it stationary? If it was, then there is not a lot you can do with it's postition in relation to the building except walk around and try different angles.

Same loco, different angle. I think the buildings in this one are far less interesting than the other angle. Story of my life...what I needed was THIS profile with the grain elevator behind it!



Does anyone know the reason behind the extra hood length on the "Snoots?"

And especially since it's such a cool elevator!
Maybe something like this would have separated the loco from the elevator more?



Though dramatic in its contrast, I would imagine this one is too dark for submission. It's hard for my camera to translate the drama of the Seattle clouds I think. Would it be worth it for me to pull out the Canon AE1 and load it up with color slide film to shoot through some kind of contrast filter?

No doubt!

As a sideline, my 5-year old took this photo during our visit using my old Sony Mavica 1.3Megapixel; it uses floppy disks and is bulletproof!



Not bad, for a kid who hasn't even gotten to Kindergarten yet! I'm so proud of him.

That's it, the gloves are off! I am getting my 4-year old a camera this weekend! Seriously, nice shot by the tyke. BTW, on that topic, check out this, which I have been thinking about getting:
