Little steam train

By jwatt
This is live steam engine (really pulls people) that a friend drives in his yard every Canada Day. If you cover up the left side it almost look real. C&C appreciated for improving it.

Hi J,
This is nice model and I find you can have a lot of fun with them. Suggest you move to the right until the front of the loco' is roughly where the cab is. Then try and get the camera lower until the front corner is in the middle of the lens. Then pan to the left 'till the right front corner is just in the viewfinder frame, Then adjust the camera 'till the bottom of the cab and running board is parallel to the bottom of the view finder. Of course making sure you've got the whole loco in the picture.

good capture with good colour - spikemoz gives good advice but make sure first the train isn't moving.
