    "Developing process"

    If anyone cares to share, what's your "secret recipe" for fixing up your photos (adjust on computer, crop, add watermark, resize, add effect, etc)? I'm a wannabe photographer and any insight or tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Just a few questions about DPUs

    I thought of these questions as I saw a few coals pass by while at work. Which railroad is credited with the first use of DPUs on their trains? Is it run by a remote control or is it wired to reproduce anything the engineer does in the lead unit automatically? Are there any differences...
