    Pete, that's an angle you don't usually see. Great shot of a good looking engine.

    Great shot! I see the engineer in the shot - I wonder who he told to hide under the dash....

    Thanks guys... It brought back a lot of memories for me. I learned about the angles from using primes. When I first went digital, the 20 was the widest I had and I had to angle it to fit everything in. I started liking the effect and use it often. The locomotive was with the 85 1.4 and if I had a zoom, I probably would just have pulled it wide and got just a plain old snapshot.

    I keep wanting to hold that train from falling off the incline. Great shot and effect!!
    Note to self: Go take some train shots.

    An interesting composition note: I've read that lines shouldn't go from corner to corner, but this one seems to work ok. The exception to the rule for sure.
