Default I Remember Every Detail About This Shot....

The late heads up I got... but I was at work two blocks away and was able to catch it.... but the thing I remember most if the cloud effing I got...

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...89&key=9455487

I've tried to edit around it, but at this point, I need either a couple of posts telling me RP is wrong or a couple of posts telling me to put it in my personal collection.

Or I could try it in B&W!

I don't really see it personally. It is a wedgie, which is hard to get on with no sunlight, and black and white isn't a cure-all in this situation. The clouds are cool, but I wish there were some bigger ones higher in the sky.

It's been sitting in my personal collection for seven years. I guess there it stays.

Sorry, Joe. You got straight up Cloud F--ked. Not your fault. But, a cloud-f'ing with blue sky in the background is a death sentence for any shot. I tend to consider any shot of mine where this happens as a total loss.

I couldn't give chase this day. Had to get back to work and it's a little far out of Rock Hill toward Chester to get to the next best photo spot. These Monetta grain trains are still good for some decent power (railfan-wise) from time to time. I'll finally just go ahead and put the color version on Flickr.
