    That train is freakin cool! After seeing these shots, well to be honest, even with myself, I can kind of understand why you might be questioned. Calling All Cars was definitely an over reaction.

    thanks !!!

    I'm using an old 20D with the tamron 28-75 2.8 lens.


    I dont mind being questioned, but the security guards think they are cops nowadays. I should file a complaint with the security guard company every time this happens.

    Thor - makes me wish I was in the OC area... but a drive out from Michigan is a bit much to tick off the law ;-)

    I am very interested in the post processing you do... or at least how you are setting up your camera? (if you care to share)

    Thanks,
    nothing special in the equipment, I use an old canon 20D, release cable and tamron 28-75 2.8 lens.
    decent tripod and I process with lightroom and then final file sizing in PS
    Sometimes Ill use the 50mm lens when I cannot get the tripod with me, but overall Ive found that
    stopped down properly the 28-75 is just as sharp as the 50mm. more so at the wider end.
    lately Ive been playing around with come post processing, sometimes I just like to bring out
    color combinations in shadows, but sometimes Ill go with something a little more harsh
    like in the train shot I was expiramenting with making the lights dark and the darks light.
    It reminds me of an hdr shot a little, which I ususaly dont like, but its gritty and it works
    well for the train I think....
     
  10. Dude, wtf, you have gotten really good at this kind of shooting.

    Ok everyone, props to the 'hammer. He's got a full-on day job, kids and a wife, and he still loves photography so much he's out at night getting these kinds of shots.

    Well done brother!

    These are all awesome - I like the train the best as well. Well worth getting hassled by the rent-a-cop IMO. :)
