Hey folks! New to the forum here, so I'll cut to the chase. Here's a couple of photos of mine of trainsportation kind of stuff around Connecticut (OK, it's just aircraft and trains...). If you click the thumbnail, it'll bring you to my site - www.nanosphoto.com - where you can view a larger version, as well as a full description and EXIF info on each image. Feel free to critique and/or ask questions about them, as well as make yourself at home and poke around the images on the site (there's plenty to go around! :) ). As for about me, check out this thread (http://www.northeastfoto.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3999)for that info.

Enjoy!
Tom

Beautiful work Tom. I especially like that 2nd one. How exactly did you capture it... settings, etc... if you can recall?

Thanks for the kind words Mike!

Settings, etc? Thank God for EXIF :D (BTW, it's located in the table below the image on my site, if you're curious - I try to make sure the stuff I post, at least the digital stuff, has EXIF in it)...

Thanks! It pays to know some engineers around CT and MA and ride along with them from time to time... ;)

Thanks for the kind words! Yeah, I've been lucky there - I've made a bunch of contacts on various railroads over the past few years, and most have panned out for cab rides. I've had one story published in Railfand & Railroad recording a typical day on shortline Central New England railroad in central CT, and one is coming out in CTC Board - Railroads Illustrated in a couple months about a cab ride around Hartford, CT with the Connecticut Southern. A much different perspective in the cab than trackside. Not only do you feel the power of the locomotives and the train behind you (largest one I rode was about 120 cars - or just over a mile - long), but also you get to interact with, and of course photograph, the people who make these huge machines run.

OK... there's that Fisheye again... and I see what you mean about it not being that "fishy". I guess I'm going to be buying one of these soon... it seems to be popping up all over the place.
