Default I wasn't trying to shoot the power

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...92&key=8490965 I was shooting the fire. The train just happened to be there. I mean someone got a pic of a bear on the tracks up so why not a fire?

I personally have had a problem with those trying to tell us to turn railroad photography into an "art form." 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

The fire is not significant enough to be the subject of the image.

Perhaps the fire needs to be larger, or you need to be closer.

As already stated, you did a poor job. Overexposed, and the image quality needs to be better as well.

I'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic, so there's no need to get all mad and defensive.

Troy is a sarcastic guy, at least that's the impression I get from him.

And while we're on the topic of sarcasm, I'm supposed to be the only Wyatt on RP.

Shoot the location, not the train.
