About the Image(s)

I don't know if any of you have been following Union Pacific's steam engine 4014 aka Big Boy. It was brought out of retirement, restored, and this summer has been traveling around the midwest to celebrate UP 150th anniversary. I was lucky enough to see it last week as it came through Iowa. It was quite fun to see it working. If you are interested in learning more or see the scheduled stops, you can google Train 4014.

It's really great to capture these locomotives when they are out and about. They move surprisingly fast too! This is very much a head-on shot and I think it would have been better taken a few seconds later when more of the side of the engine was in view. That would also mean the headlight wasn't pointing straight at the camera. It would be nice to see that version if you have it.
Cropping is very personal but I would be tempted to ablate the figure on the left hand side and maybe the aerial wires too. What do you think? Andrew (Group 40).   Posted: 08/18/2019 09:50:52
