I might have aimed a bit more toward the right in #1, but they look good to me.

#1 the train is framed really tight on the top. The heat signature from the locomotive always adds a little flair to the pic
#2 would have been better as a landscape for me

Judging by the perspective you must have been standing in between the rails for No. 1 and on the ballast for No. 2. Pretty close. Were both trains "moving"? In your No.1 there is enough to see that the train is moving as it is over the road crossing, but the passenger train might have been stopped.

Just curious as a former Locomotive Engineer.

I'm thinking this is a recipe for disaster if this becomes a habit. Heck all it would take is a loose strap on a load of lumber and I would not want to be the one who has to pick up the pieces afterwards.

You would not even realize of a trains was approaching from behind you with the noise of the subject train.


Your camera is alot smarter than the "M" Zealots would have you believe
