I'm googling it now but please tell me what you find out on Lightroom. I have done pano's and HDR in LR6. I really don't care for the HDR's that come out of that program. I also have LR6 stand alone. I don't want to do the subscription service that has both but feel eventually I will have to.

Those trips sound like you will capture some great images. We've been to Boston, Cape Cod, and Martha's Vineyard but that is as far North East we have travelled. Would love to visit Maine.

Nope, from what I see there is only HDR and Pano stacking in LR. So whatever stacking I've done n the past was in PS. I jump between the two so often I forgot which one did it.

Thanks for checking. That was the same info I got from googling as well. I might have to look into getting the Adobe Photography suite in the future.

Dreaming of warmer days. We're going into the deep freeze the next few days.

We kinda live in the deep freeze up here in Omaha. Coldest Winter I can recall in quite sometime. I just bought a new Canon 2X III extender I want to use with my 100-400 but it's just to damn cold out.

Congrats on the purchase. Have any ideas of what your going to shoot at with all that length? Birds?

I wished I could "like" this photo Mike. Did you take this? Maybe there is more to the story of the photo than meets the eye but it looks like you might have been standing between the rails of the tracks and snapped the image?

I'm sorry but I have to do some preaching here. I can not put into words how dangerous this is. This simple photo could have turned deadly in a matter of seconds not to mention if a Railroad official had seen you, you could have been arrested for trespassing.

I fully realize that people by nature have a love affair with railroads and rail tracks but believe me it's a one sided affair. There are few places on earth more dangerous or deadly than railroad tracks. Google the phrase "killed on the railroad tracks" and take the time to read any of the hundreds of articles.

People think trains are loud and noisy so they think, oh no big deal, I'll hear it coming and be able to get out of the way in time. This could not be farther from the truth. To those of us in the industry, and having personally worked around moving rail equipment for 40 years, we know an on coming train as "Silent Death". People are so mislead by the speed of trains not realizing that 1.) Trains can not stop on a dime. A 100 car train moving at 50 mph takes over a mile to stop even when brakes are fully applied. And 2.) Trains can not swerve out of the way to avoid hitting a person or automobile at a crossing.

You would not even consider walking out into the middle of I-70 or I-435 and taking photographs would you? Of course not. and the railroad is just as dangerous.

I have made this same plea to other photographers over the years and I make it to you as well. Please, please, please for the love of god, your family and the crew operating the train, STAY AWAY FROM THE TRACKS.

It would be so terrible for a complete stranger to knock on your home door only to tell your wife that, I'm sorry ma'am but your husband will not be coming home ever again.

Mostly for this upcoming Super moon eclipse combo that s suppose to be happening on January 31 I think. Not much of a bird guy and since you automatically lose 2 stops of light with the Extender, it's not good for sports. I recon I'll just have it on the shelf until I find something to shoot.

If you’d like to put this to a test, I’ll step across a rr track and you can step across I-70 or I-435 since you claim they are equally dangerous. A train track has just one lane with infrequent vehicular traffic while an interstate is vastly wider, has many lanes, has many many many vehicles with extremely high traffic density.

We can agree that rr tracks pose a very serious mortal danger and that no one should ever linger on a track, and they should absolutely be off limits to all portrait photoshoots. But individuals can indeed safely step across a track by simply looking both ways after confirming no train. I do this frequently. I would never attempt crossing an interstate highway on foot.

Look David, I've been doing this 40 years. I'm not going to argue with you. Foremost, it's trespassing on private property. Just hope that I'm not the one to see you stepping across our tracks.

Have you ever had to walk to a door in the middle of a dark night and tell a wife that her husband is now deceased while their 6 year old daughter is asleep in the other room? I have. It's a horrible situation that could have easily been avoided. And for what, for a photograph?

Point is, why risk it?

Deaths from walking on railroad tracks are up nearly 10 percent, with 483 last year alone, according to the Federal Railroad Administration, with many people pausing to take selfies on the tracks or pose for traditional camera shots.

Just. Not. Worth. It.
