Is there any way to straighten that lower plate on the left side just a "squeak"?

That's the natural way that the track sits, I believe all those plates at all the cable car stops are like that.

Oh,,, I see,,, It is a killer shot... The plate just looks a bit off, but if that's the way it is, that's the way it is.. I'm sure it will look wonderful printed..:)

Thanks guys! I really liked how the cleaned up version came out.

@BigSkyKen....okay I'll keep that in mind. Will the printer over compensate on the black? First time getting a b/w print...going to have my local camera store print it.

I normally have my prints done via a service like Mpix, but if there are specific details I feel need to be verified prior to printing, I make sure to add some comments. As you are having a local store do the printing, spend a couple minutes with them to make sure they will not let the larger dark areas become black blobs. Most likely if you've already lightened those dark areas enough to maintain detail, they will see that there is detail there and print accordingly. Hope it all works out well, I think it will make a very nice gift.

Yeah, it's actually kind of staggered, and the left side of the track is at more of an incline than the right side of it. Pretty interesting

Ok cool. I'll lighten up the blacks a little bit, and then I'll bring both files with me to the store and I'll talk with the guy who does the printing there. He is very experienced and does great prints, so I'm sure he will pay attention to detail throughout the whole image. Thank you!

Really good advice. I spent some time with the guy who does printing at my local shop and we discussed what I did and didn't like. When I picked them up, I went over each of them with him and had him tell me about the choices he made. I did this with a couple runs with him. Now, I can just send them in over the internet and know that I'll be happy with his work.

Oh, and I really like the last one after you sent out the litter detail to pick up the trash. The symmetry of the tracks is so perfect that the symmetry works. Then the differences in the buildings in the background provide some variation to the symmetry. Excellent work!


1D-III with stuff to stick on it:
70-200L, 28-70L, 24-105L, 300L, 50, 10-17 fish, 2.0x TC
Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!

Thanks for the comments! Went to the camera shop tonight. As I was leaving, he finished a printing of it, but he said he was going to redo it and lighten it up, because he didn't like it haha. Stuff like that lets me know he puts effort into the printing.

Just picked it up from the store, and it turned out great! I had it printed on metallic paper that really makes it pop. Very pleased with the turnout. Thanks everyone for all the advice. Lol and BigSkyKen...let me know if you do end up wanting one like I said before...or anyone for that matter lol! I'll work up some pricing if anyone's interested. I'm.definitely going to get a print for myself.

I like the one you just posted the best. In my opinion I would remove the bright white pieces of trash in the bottom of the photo. That would be my preference, but it's your image and your call :)

I would agree and it can easily be done.
