Well I read some of the web site that Tom but me onto and . . . this is my first 'Roster' shot. I set my lens to 50mm, I did not bother to put on my nifty fifty, but used what I remembered from the instruction given.

Here: http://www.grumpysworl​d.com/photoguide/photo​guide.htmexternal link

It was one of the best Sunday evenings I remember . . . I found birds and buildings and . . . Trains. I know everyone will like this photograph because I have never seen a bad train photograph.

20D/17-85 . . . set at 50, lol. ;)

Bless the recently fallen and their family and friends.
I have a Cannon with me at all times. You can't take the shot if you don't have something with which to shoot. :rolleyes:

Beautiful shot. It really is nitce when the weather cooperates and everything comes together like that.

Grumpy really knows what he's talking about. I always enjoy reading his editorials as he has a very irreverent side to him.

Tom are you using CDS's spell checker? LOL, anyway should I tip the shot to make the tracks level and let the wedge go in the sky? I somehow think the roster shot is wrong . . . Yours or others thoughts on this . . .

Nobody uses CDS's spellchecker....expeci​ally CDS.

Normally, I would rotate the image so that the vertical elements in the engine are straight up and down. That will normally level the horizon a bit, but the ultimate goal is to make sure the engine doesn't look like it's leaning.

Actually, I just downloaded your photo and leveled the horizon. It does look a lot better IMHO, although the vertical components in the engine aren't perfectly so.
