    Maybe the perspective one looks odd because the train top is flush with the horizon.

    I think you're right - it contributes to the confusion of two opposing diagonals. Which way should the eye look - along the road to the left or the line to the right?

    The train top is flush because I was standing on the roof of my truck camper for the shot.

    OK, just one more and I'll go back to my nature photography....

    This was a Rollei 6008 shot from about 10 years ago. It sold rather well!

    Love the blur caused by the exhaust out the top of the engine, Bill.

    Re: Railway photography, anyone?

    Hi,

    Ok, more or less out of curiosity i shot below image while spending
    my vacation in the Scottish highlands.

    "Steam Train on Glenfinnan Viaduct", most prominent because it was used
    in a Harry Potter movie. In fact it is difficult to photograph because most of
    the time you see kids with their compacts lining up on the opposite side of
    the hill where one stands.

    Anyway, just my contribution to this thread.

    Regards,
    Ralf

    Didn't see this thread until now, since it's so well hidden among all the MF stuff. Here's my humble contribution anyway, from Had Yai in the south of Thailand.

    Bill, the first and the last one are truly great railway photos

    Thank you, Jorgen - and yours is pretty darn good too! Love the foreshortened perspective.

    Well, this thread has been dormant for a while, but I'm still running after locomotives from time to time! This is from Banff National Park yesterday. Unfortunately low clouds have completely obscured the soaring mountains behind. P65+ and 55 mm hand held - didn't have time to set up the Gitzo!

    Terrific shot Bill! I love the colors and the winding line of the train. I have a fascination with trains as well....but almost all of my images have been taken with 35mm film/digital and medium or large format film....so I've got nothing to share here from my MFDB (CFV-16II). Guess I'd better get out there this weekend and re-shoot a few favorites with the 503CWD.

    Until then, maybe you wouldn't mind if I shared this non-MFDB image. I really like the blue and yellow colors of the Alaska Railroad engines.

    Re: Railway photography, anyone?

    My partner and I are steam buffs from way back, when we lived in Canberra we were members of the Australian Railway Historical Society (ACT) and used to work on the trains as conductors and waiters n the restaurant trains. They are currently restoring the big articulated 60 class Beyer Garrett engine, a long term project gor them.

    I don't have any shorts taken with med format but there are some train pics on my Flickr under my collection called Trains & Steam. I do have some 6x6 transparencies but no scanner to convert them to digital as yet.

    Re: Railway photography, anyone?

    Glad to know I am not the only one! Steam railway photography is my speciality - it just makes such a great subject.

    You can see loads of my stuff here:
    http://www.edhurstrailway.fotopic.ne...ollections.php
    The password to most of the collections is steamphoto

    There is loads of steam in the UK (all of it 'preserved', much of it operating special excursion trains on the national rail network, loads of it on volunteer-run private railways).

    The only railway line left in my home town is a Steam railway

    http://www.nymr.co.uk/

    There is a steam service for most of the year.

    Some great picture opportunities

    Re: Railway photography, anyone?

    Thanks, Ed, some great stuff!

    Could you consider allowing one password to all the galleries? It's a bit irritating having to re-type it each time you move to a new section.

    But I will admit it was worth it!

    This is a fun shot of a restored Death Valley Railway Car. The car was running (means vibrating) while we took the HDR sequence. Some volunteers rebuilt it over some years of work.
