Another 35Ti shot from today. Taken out of my truck window. With over a 100 trains passing through here every day, not an uncommon sight!

I like it! Ray, the beauty of photography is in the composition. That's why photo masters are masters. All the images shot with a 35mm lens when they should have been shot with a 105 or even 200 but actually ending up better. One single lens and good composition beats any telephoto lens, any day.

Thanks guys. This is a good example of the limitations of a 35mm lens. My l05 would have done better here I think.
I agree that a 35mm lens is not the choice for car seat shooting (which I do a lot of. My camera rides on the seat next to me.) I have a 35mm on my rf too. I need to do 2 things differently than I do when shooting zoom lenses or even a 50mm. 1) Move in closer. 2) Pay close attention to the outliers, that is stuff at the edges or corners. There is much more of it in a 35mm field of view than in a normal view.

You did #2 perfectly here. I like the broken symmetry of this composition.

I kinda agree with both you and Chris. Just using one lens, especially a mild wide angle, really forces you think about the shot and composition! And thanks for the comment Ned!

Yep, it is a conumdrum - use one lens and adjust to its strengths and weaknesses or maybe keep two bodies handy - my little EM isn't much bigger than the 35Ti! Well, on this one it took 3 tries before I caught the subject between two cars. And once again, thanks Chris!
