What do you think of this composition wise. I know the train is out of focus. I only had a few sec to get the shot and i didnt realize it was on manual focus and was in a hurry. Other then that and the power line what do you think of it?

I have tried several times to compose a very similar shot. The police were very unhappy with my shenannagans....

Not bad considering what you were actually trying to do. Next time you just need to prepare yourself better. Isn't this why they say experience is such a great teacher. ;)

P.S.
How fast was the train moving?

Maybe 5-10 mph. It was moving away from me too. It had an engine at both the front and back.

Didnt run into any cops there. The train conductor waved to me so i dont think he was mad.
 
The train tracks where I was trying to capture the shots are mostly electric powered trains.
Last week I was standing on a bridge over the tracks and a fast moving diesel came flying by...scared the XXXX out of me. :mrgreen:
 
FYI: Train tracks are private property. As stated before, you can be arrested for walking on or near them. 15 feet on both sides of the tracks is railroad property.

Also, depending on what your doing "if taking pictures then prob not" you can be arrested under terrorism charges. In other words, no rights and you are never seen again.

I work for a railroad, I know =p


PS. Cool photo

jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeezzzz...maybe it would be better to let the train smash me after capturing the image. ;):mrgreen:



I knew the tracks were private property. I was there early in the morning. The police were there earlier.

Just be careful, there could always be a train right behind it or on another track.

What about where it crosses a road. Is that considered public property since the road is public?
