Cass Scenic Shay #4 with a small photo freight climbs out of the switchback and heads towards a large line of railfans awaiting at the S curve. Having done that shot a few times, I resorted to this angle. As seen at Cass Railfan Weekend 2011.
This is a great shot, you can see the planning, timing and competence, in fact it puts you right there to share, sense the occasion, wondering about the dry leaves in autumn. Exactly what you would wish your image will do for the viewer. However, here to find critiques, if any, for me there are a couple, that stop this image being as good as it can get. 1st cropping, a one degree clockwise tilt makes a tremendous difference to the comfort of the viewing then, then 2nd a 10% opening of the shadows, give so much more to see.
