i'll post the origional from before i posted this thread...and i suppose it could use a little more contrast but the sharpening is fine...or at least the screener thought so!

there was no city...

Why do you come here and ask if you are not going to follow through on the suggestions.

I dunno, decide for yourself. It didn't really look any different to me.

That wasn't directed toward you, Mark. I just quoted your post because you had posted his picture.

Default Damn...2 clicks in Picasa of all things and it looks better!

Yea, I'm not the one to criticize, but I went into Picasa just for the heck of it, two clicks later and the photo looks a heck of a lot different (better IMO)...

Gotcha.

The two shots Troy posted are slightly different, look at the shadows above the second loco.

There's still a nasty red/yellow cast in the shot that needs to be fixed, regardless of how much/little the screener paid attention. Additionally, it could use some sharpening, but it's not too bad.

I don't like it. Its the Feather River Canyon, where the hell is the river? Looks like you were still driving on Hwy 70 when you shot this.

BTW, do some research in the database for what the City and Locations are for those spots, it prevents others (me) from having to correct it.

That river is very refreshing to swim in between trains (and at high noon), especially when its 105 degrees outside.

Sure, if you want your sack to crawl back up into your body.

That's mountain water...probably 60-65 degrees even with a 105 degree air temp.

Dont be a baby. We swim in Lake Superior April-November and it averages 40 degrees! Some people...

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

Naw its the old thing, but it is fun to watch the tourists who dont realize the water is that cold, and smile and wave at their family then scream bloody murder when they dive in.

it's almost like that in lake tahoe in the summer...(and probably alot worse in the winter!)

the sun can't heat up the 39.75 trillion gallons of water to a good temperature in one day.
