  2. Hey Fred

    Love the sky in pic #3, that blue really pops. Is this shot just with a polarizer???


  3. These are beautiful! Good job!
  4. Wonderful captures ........... nicely done.

  5. Hi Ted! I didn't use a polarizer but a ND grad IIRC. I know I shot it a tad underexposed too.

    Thanks RockACello :smile:

    Thanks, Bob :smile:

    Great photos, and really nice compositions and color! Capturing #3, 4, and 5 - the same part of the trestle - from different vantage points, was really a good idea. How long did you have to wait for each subsequent train to pass by?

    Very nice series, I love trains also, love the landscape also
    Thanks for sharing.

  8. Thanks, Glenn. It's not a busy branch, so I photographed one train, grabbed breakfast and returned an hour later for the second one. After that I left to chase trains in a busier location.

    Thanks, Phil!
