    Thanks! We were trying to get some shots of downtown La Grange for postcards to sell to the local merchants.

    I used to mail postcards while on vacation and I think postcards are a neat tradition worth promoting. I think it costs $0.35 to mail a postcard these days? I wish you success Andy W!

    I found NS 4161 southbound (RR west) on the Seattle Sub just south of Tacoma, WA. I was trying out my new Nikon DX 35mm f/1.8G. I've got some work to do, but I don't feel it is the best lens for moving trains.

    Your image looks fine to me John, no problems. I've thought about getting a 35mm Prime just like yours for my D5100. I am not sure I'd use it enough to justify the cost, but having a f/1.8 lens in my kit would be nice in the evenings when loss of light is a concern. I'd have guessed it'd be a fine choice for trains, though to capture a certain composition, it might nudge a photographer to stand in a unsafe spot.

    Thank you for the kind words. I need more practice and I need to fine tune my settings, also, many of my shots were over exposed and or soft. Not use to all that light entering my camera. My go to train lens is a Nikon 18-105mm and it does a fantastic job at this location.

    I agree with Sandpatch your image looks good to me too John. I learned photography using a 50mm lens on my Nikkormat. Although it seems I'm still learning many years on. I still use a nifty fifty today although that's a 35mm with an APSC camera. Keep shooting with your 35mm you'll grow to enjoy it more & more.

    Me too. The 50mm was my sole lens for many years and it did well. Even today when I shoot with my 18-55mm DX kit lens, I try to not go below 35mm when shooting locomotives and other subjects close up because I don't want distortion. A 50mm view spoils ya with it's pure perfection.
