All,

I welcome critique and criticism in regards to the opening slideshow of my website linked above.
Don't hold back, I value negative comments as well as the positive.
Everything was captured with all three generations of the 5D series, and the original EOS-1Ds from 2002.

Thanks,
Matthew

I am envious.  I also enjoy taking pictures of steam locomotives, but unfortunately, in my area, the pickins are slim.
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

I am also a railroad enthusiast.  (I am attending a Santa Fe convention this week.)  I have looked at many photographs of trains.  I have taken several (thousands) myself.  Yours are up there with the very best.  Your opening slide show is a great way to present some of them.  Great website.  And welcome to CR.
5Dc; 6D; M; several lenses.  Enthusiast.

Excellent work, Matthew. It's a joy to watch!

Thanks.

Hi Matthew.
You seem to have a good eye for the photographs, some very evocative shots here. I really like one with two engineers chatting from their steeds, very atmospheric.
Thanks for sharing.
Edit Spelling.
