These are really great pictures. This may be a stupid question, but how do you decrease you pic's file size so it can be uploaded? I'm new to the posting thing.

Not a stupid question at all. There are a few options out there. Here's a link to a thread with some ideas. I resize my photos when I export my images from Lightroom. A lot of people that have photos on other photo sharing sites or blogs just link their photos using the 'Img' button. No resizing needed in that case.

Johnson - Not worthy! That is a cool shot. Great composition, of course. Moody. Thanks for sharing.

vonmackle - the scream is also a great shot, well done all around. Consider http://denverarts.org/call_for_entries/call_for_entries_it_s_all_here_in_bw.

Barry, that is one of the best compositions I've seen recently.

The railroad ties act as leading lines, taking the viewer from the foreground right to the cabin door - and the on to the mysteries of the tunnel.

The eye is drawn first to the cabin, then to the tunnel, then back to the cabin. The monochrome removes the distracting element of color from the composition, allowing the full impact of composition and juxtaposition of shapes.

I particularly like the curving lines of the rails, the tension between the three major elements in the composition, and the placement of elements within the composition.

Very, very nice.

That is very kind of you Jim. The day was a bit of a blur but Unclegar and I were having fun stealing ideas for shots. I think this was my idea but it could have been his. He is more honest than I am so maybe he will see this and weigh in.

That is a nice shot, Barry. Did you guys flip the crate sitting inside that cabin? There is a bit of history there...

No, we didn't.... don't want to derail the thread but what is the history?
