    toiaj - I think that 2nd shot is awesome, definitely a keeper. Although I do like the first one too, it does not grab me the way the 2nd one does.

    Tori (that's your name right?), I think I like that second one too. The noise is a visible there. At least I think it's the noise. If you shot at ISO 400, 1/50 sec would that work too? Did you hand hold this? Regardless, I like it. What time of the evening did you shoot at?

    Thanks zmikers and Lukas. Glad you like it. Yep, my name is Tori
    Yeah, there's noise in #2. I had forgotten my ISO was still at 1600 so even though I was handholding it, I could have opened it up by two stops and still been able to handhold it. Oh well, one of those brain freezes. I don't remember if I did any NR on this shot, usually noise in the sky doesn't bother me too much and noise in the rocks just looks like detail I took it at about 7:00 p.m. about two weeks ago.

    P.S. I just ordered a polarizer fader and 1.2 GND

    I've been working on my composition. Do you think either of these shots are strong enough to stand on their own?

    I really like them both. I like the second one the most. I like the color a lot. In the first one, I like how the train looks almost miniaturized.

    Hi Tori,

    I like both and agree with the others that the second has something that grabs your attention. I also like the colour in the second shot and appreciate the "night-shot with the moon" aspect of the composition, knowing how fond you are of nightscapes.

    However I really like the first photo too. I like the compositional elements in the photo, eg the plants in the foreground, the way the groove acts as a leading line into the photo to the mid-distance with the train frozen on the tracks and the hills/mountains and hill/mountain-ridge line in the background. I like the way the mountain ridge is "silhouetted" against the sky. I like the colour of the different features, although the snow cover blankets everything reducing detail somewhat. I like the shadow across the mountain range and how the groove in the foreground leads you to the train in mid-ground and the mountain spur in the background. All in all a really well constructed landscape.
    I guess the only thing missing is some dramatic cloud feature in the sky or some other lighting variation which might create more interest in the scene.

    Well done!
    (If I can do half as well sometime soon I'll be well pleased )

    cheers,

    Benjamin

    Thanks, Benjamin! I'm so glad you appreciated the composition in #1. I've really been working on it I want to get some shots where the train is more dominant in the scene, but from this outing I learned that I will need to be MUCH closer to the train. (lol) I'll need to hike (trespass) clear out to those train tracks hmm, maybe I need a wideangle lens so I can get the skyline in the frame too ... $$$

    Hi Tori

    You're welcome, I can see the effort and thinking that went into the shot.
    Even though I cann't produce similar photos yet (it will take a lot more practice & reading, reading & practice etc ), I can certainly appreciate the visual/compositional elements in them.

    Without spending $$$ on a super-wide lens (10-17 or something), I guess the compromise would be, as you say, to hike in (half way perhaps?) and shoot at 18mm, i.e. utilising the widest angle on the lenses available, to get more sky etc but physically reduce the distance to the train, the main focal point.

    I look forward to seeing the results!

    regards,

    Benjamin
