I bet that was something to witness.. Crawford is bitchin' when the rails are dry, crawling up the grade, can't imagine the sounds with wet rails. Great shots.

With wet rails and the greaser, there really wasn't any sound. The power sounds nice once its in front but I was so busy taking pictures I didn't notice it! I'm probably around it too much to notice the difference. Now... what really would have been cool to see was the derailment pick up near Thedford, 80 cars on the ground all shoved out of the way in 24 hrs...

Hey now... thats my reference point for future photos! lol... I didn't really think about that, honestly. The only way to get rid of it would be to crop it out

Yap... That is Shawn Varner. He was actually the guy that called me that morning to go up to Crawford Hill. He has a 4x4 truck so I was thankful. He just bought a Canon Rebel T2i so he is learning how to use it from me.

Thanks for your help, btw, Mark. I'm working on submitting the 3rd photo tonight.

And the 3rd one is submitted and accepted. Now to work on two more. Thanks for everyone's help and advice on the 3 in question. As stated before, I learned a lot about snow pictures.

However, I am curious... I think someone mentioned to shoot in manual... what settings would you set it on for something like that? I was shooting in AV mode either on 8.0 or 9.0.

Oh yeah Jim... The GE's are fading that way especially with the acidic engine grime and coal dust retardant crap they put on it... The snow only highlights it.

I think it has more to do with his processing. The orange on the same locomotive looks "normal" in your shot.

Well, that all depends. First you have to pick an aperture. Then you have to pick an ISO. Finally, pick a shutter speed to expose the snow 1-2 stops over. There you go...you've got your manual setting.

That maybe true! I'm glad you think mine looks more normal than his, lol. Must be that Photoshop CS5 advantage over whatever he's using...
