You see those at 100%? On what size monitor?

Heck if I know. Normal sized ones? lol

I was on a monitor at work this morning (I guess it's a 17 inch), and on my laptop now.

That explains why I can't see noise either. 30 plus years of film, plus an early adopter of digital which was a bit noisy too. 98% I can't see what you guys see, along with some of the focus issues that the screeners see that I can't see for nothing. That's why I quite posting for several years, because I couldn't see what they saw. Now I just say fuck it and post it on Facebook if they don't want it here.

Not suggesting that my shot is anything special, but your B&W's may need to be more B&Wish.

Actually a nice shot. Never could understand why people think they're going to get a good shot of a steam engine when standing right next to it. Were they thinking it was a G-gauge?

Good point! Look at your histogram.

Maybe a little tight, but definitely special.

I have a shot stretching from my tastes in your direction and if I ever get off my duff I will get it out. The issue is indecision over the many choices in B/W treatment; lots of opportunity but I find it frustrating sometimes to figure out what works best.

Sometimes a crop is tight because the photographer couldn't back up any farther!

I saw a UP unit on its own in the yards today. I got a roster shot, the only problem I see is the lighting. Not on my computer so here's a low quality pic of my camera screen. I am aware that the light is on the wrong side and all that. At the time of taking the picture I was thinking, "Maybe the criteria for roster shots are slightly different," but now I've come more aware that that's probably not true. Though I think the elevator in the background adds to the shot.

Lighting is everything. If you see it as a problem, it probably is.

The criteria for roster shots are different. They're much tougher.

Over the past several decades I've come to think that light/use of light is about 90% of a good photo.

Exactly. I wouldn't even consider this a roster shot really. A roster shot shows just a single engine at a 3/4 angle. Here you're also showing 2 more units, as well as part of a train.

Another reason I rarely bother to upload anything. Mine would have certainly been rejected. I'll just sell a few hundred dollars worth of prints of it and 'live'.
