Waited and waited and waited for this train to come thru. Had seperated 15 cars from the end while going over a highway overpass. So when it finally got going it was full throttle while approaching a few of us railfans.

let me ask you and anyone else on this site, does it look like there's bad lighting? I submitted this to a train pic site and got rejected do to poor lighting. It was taken roughly around 1pm. Also if anyone saw the CSX panning shot i got rejected for out of focus.

Onlything bad about the lighting is the nasty shadow under the headlight. Other than that, nice shot. I am guessing it is an SD40-2.

Lighting doesn't look all that bad. Some places are just super picky these days unless you capture something that they are missing from their collections. Where was the shot taken?

The shot was on NYSW main line in NJ. In Maywood just off maywood ave. They restored one of the few remaining stations there (100+ years old) and across from is a parking lot for a store. So got out, walked onto the torn up track and just waited and waited. Used the xt with sigma 70-200 f2.8.

I like this shot for the vivid colors in the engines. The only question I would ask about the "bad Lighting" is whether the shadows are too deep (black). That might be adjustable with PS.

Harold_L, i did brighten it up with fill flash which helped a lil. But if i went to much i blew the pic out and i didn't want to do that.

1 way: Rt-click on it & pick Properties.

Best way is to set it when you resize for the web. Got PS?

The shot works for me. The only thing with lighting that I could think of is there is not enough nose light. The area under the number boards is pretty dark. From the shadows, IMO, I would think if you found a spot that the tracks turned to your left the lighting would have been better.
