Well clearly I'm new to photography, still trying to figure out how to use my camera, but this is what I got today. Let me know what you think! Be honest and brutal, I need that if I'm going to get better. Thank-you! 1.

Observation or dome car actually. Basically if your not familiar with trains its a passenger car that has a dome on the top where you can climb up into and view the scenery via the top of the train. Kinda looks like a caboose.

Upon closer inspection that is definitely the cupola in a caboose.

Just like this one

Hmmmm weird considering its definitely not at the end of the train, which led me to believe it was the observation car.

...they all seem a bit blurry. Are you using automatic or manual focusing?

I've only seen those chairs in the caboose...do you have any pictures of the outside of the train? Here's the same chairs in the caboose.

To me the name of the game is lighting. On the first one though it's a boring shot. It's cool and all, but it's a predictable angle and the color is faded. I would have used HDR on the first two and boosted saturation in post. Also patience. They all look like very little time was made in taking them. Were you using a tripod? If not, try faster shutter speed and wider aperture and make double sure you are in focus.




When there is tranquility, you are in the right place. When there are no footprints, you are on the right path. When there are no tire tracks, you are on the right road.

Like already said, try a tripod or boost ISO and low aperture to get sharp photo's
Also try to straighten lines with Photoshop

Thanks for the advice guys! I have noticed with some of my pictures in the past that I do seem to rush them. I need to work on that. I don't remember if I was using a tripod or not. I think I used one for part of it and the other part I didn't. I'm still learning what ISO and aperture is. The Advice helps for sure. Thanks again

In #2 if you want to focus on the valve keep your aperture down

I think those newer to photography like to experiment a little more and sometimes have more varied shots - just a thought
