Happy Friday

Still working on the back corner. Hooked up all the lights in that area & working on the ground cover now. Should be done this weekend.

Thanks. It's funny how other people see a photograph. That Cresson one was taken in Nov & I hung on to it & kept trying to re-edit it. I didn't like the sun angle or shadows at all. Still dont :)

The light and shadow play at Cresson is interesting but I can see why you don't like it Christopher, the lighting seriously distracts one's eyes away from the train subject.

I've never been a fan of winter light & mountain railfanning. Between the low sun angles & the shadows, it's tough to pull off decent shots.

Wait a little and things will improve. The shadows disappear and sky turns dramatic.
This is not train related but shows what I mean.
I was taking photos of a typical Arizona sunset at the gas station with my cell phone.

When it got too dark for sunset photos I turned around and saw the moon over gas station canopy.

Lack of dynamic range is your friend at night. I could see things out in the desert, but it was too dark for the cell phone to record them.

And... if you have one of those flash units that goes, "ZONK!", when you set if off, you can do things like this Norfolk Southern Intermodel Advertising shot.

Yes, the flash units make for a nice shot & you don't have to contend with the sun. I've debated getting them, but not sure how much I would find time to use them vs the cost of the equipment. If you are in an open area w/o say the mountains of PA or WV, winter sun can usually yield some nice shots. In all my years of shooting, I've found that I dislike Feb - mid March lighting the most.
