I got my 17-85 back from Canon and took it out for a spin Monday morning in St. Paul. First stop was Westminster Interlocking and after a bit of a wait, this Northtown-Dayton's Bluff transfer came through just as the sun was starting to peek over the bluffs.

I found myself a few hours later on the south side of the river in St. Paul taking pictures of a BNSF train stopped in front of St. Paul Union Depot when a UP transfer snuck up behind it. My buddy informed me that the Roberts St. Lift bridge was dropping down and a shot I've been hoping to get for months might actually happen. The CP-UP transfer than began to crawl over the bridge as it headed down to South St. Paul Yard.

These are my first decent shots using what I have learned on these boards and first post here in transportation. Any C&C would be greatly appreciated. There is something missing I believe from making this pictures pop and I can't quite figure out what it is.

12 hours and nothing? Do I need to put a hot rod or something in there to get people to notice? :lol:

Get used to it. Most, not all, of these guys pretty much suck when it comes to comments, but they all expect to get comments in their threads. I'm coming around to the attitude that "What's good for the goose...". ;)

Nice shots, but they both look overexposed, though #2 isn't that much lighter.

Yeah, that's what I was afraid of. I upped the exposure by 1/2 stop I believe. I'll put it back to 0 and look at them again. I was trying to get them to pop a bit more, but that wasn't it. I'll post the originals when I get home.

Yeah, that title doesn't exactly scream 'open me.' That's definately something to keep in mind for next time.

It's St Paul! :wink:

Coming from Detroit?!?! :D
