    S'OK: We just like to know what our friends, even cyber ones, are doing with their lives, specifics aren't necessary.
    Wouldn't want you to spill big Gvt. secrets.
    Too many things can be taken out of context and made into mountains, when they are molehills.

    Just playin' around

    Was playing around with these shots from last Summer, as I was working on some Calendar pics.
    Shot at ISO 800 with the D7100, sharpened and used the Orton Special effect and Multiply mode in ACDSee Pro7. I was surprised at what I ended up with.

    Falconest,

    The second shot 'pose' is best, but sure wish it had the background from the first one.

    Yeah, I can't seem to get them to 'pose' for me in the right places. they look better in the full resolution pic. Resizing loses detail.

    There is something about railways (electric or diesel or coal) that somehow take us back to childhood. Thanks.

    Here are a couple of shots: One of the first major city/countrywide electric train systems... This is the JR Yamanote Line. The Shinkansen (tracks to the far right) is the world model for high-speed rail. Nozomi (pictured below) is the fastest of these.

    Shinkansen Nozomi. 300km/h Tokyo to Osaka (320 Miles) in about 2.5 hours including four stops. I love taking this train, but it's hard to take pictures at that speed.

    Their Pros want union scale or they won't show up. As an 'amateur' I don't have pull with the D'fly union, so I have to make do with local free lance folks.
