Thanks everyone. That first picture was only possible because the crew had to stop their train and fix an MU cable to get the second unit to provide power. Otherwise they would have been long gone and I would never have taken that photo. Funny how things work out.

Got RAW?
Bill,
It may be my work PC's monitor but I seems like the orange in your processing is pushed a little too much. A case of too much of a good thing can turn into a bad thing.
Technically they look consistient with your shooting abilities.

Not sure how to interpret your comment. These pictures were taken very early in the morning with low sun angles which definitely enhances the orange in the locomotives.

Nice shots Bill - the first one in particular - always nice to work in a little curve.

Color is a subjective thing. One things that happens is that a camera's firmware can often 'juice up' the color. I think the real reason the orange is intense is the early morning sun. I have the same problem with the BNSF orange even with RAW files. It just never quite looks right.

I have to go look at my camera and see if I have any of the settings changed. I knew I was messing around with them when I first got the camera. Thanks Jon.
