See the trains in Croatia suffer from the same breed of grafiti artists as in the UK.

Nice shot though see your shutter speed was only 1/200sec where I shoot most of my train pictures have to have a shutter speed of at least 1/1000sec to actually stop the train dead in its tracks.
BTW have you shot any Locomotive hauled freight trains in your country as this is one of my main interests in railways would love to see some of them if you do or maybe (said with tongue in cheek) you could go out and shoot a couple for me. TIA

I shot with 1/200, in a first place, because camera was in P mode, so it is not my call:). Second, train was closing to station and have small speed, so I’ve decide that 1/200 will be enough. One thing what I didn’t do right is focusing. Focus should be in front of a train instead of middle (front of train is a little blurry). Hope I`ll do better next time.
I saw your flicker…interesting train shots… I try to shot some locomotives and post it here.

Thanks for comment!
Cheers!

You're getting good color and sharpness out of your kit lens. Was there much processing of this image or is it straight out of the camera. I am a little worried though, because I don't see a conductor in the window? :shock:

On another note, we're making plans for our first visit Croatia this summer. We were thinking of a week in Dubrovnik. Any other suggestions?

Thanks,
-steve

Hi Steve!

99.9% of my photos are Photoshop free. My camera is always set too faithful pictures style and of course RAW. Mayor of my post processing is based on DPP where I boost saturation on +2, correct WB, give or take some contrast and play around with sharpening. In some words I even would not call it post processing because all of this things I can se on camera. Sometimes I export file in 16 TIFF and opens it with Photoshop but that’s only when I need to crop and rotate photo in some free angel, because even in the latest version of DPP, Canon did not put that possibility.

PP on train picture: saturation +2, sharpness +6 and 300

About conductor… Not know where’s he hiding but I’m pretty shore that is on the train:).

About Croatia…
Dubrovnik is nice place to come for summer, although I live in continental part of country.
If U can try to visit national park “Plitvicka jezera” (very nice, lots of beautiful thins too photograph):
http://www.np-plitvicka-jezera.hr/cpage ... &pageID=87

Second thing I recommend are Rastoke (also lots of lakes, waterfall, beautiful nature, excellent for bike ride or hiking):
http://www.tz-slunj.hr/galerija/eindex2.html

Third and my last is also national park. It’s call Krka (think that here U can even go for rafting):
http://www.npkrka.hr/html_en/fotogalerija_en.htm

Croatia has 7 national parks and they are all worth to pay a visit. I know that is hard to see them all in one vacation, but those two are “must to see”:).

Enjoy!
Cheers!

Thanks for all the suggestions and links. Croatia looks beautiful and has more places than I could ever see in one visit. I'll probably have to narrow it down to one place. :)

To Drazen Gal further to what I was saying this is what I shoot mainly, and most of this traffic is moving pretty fast.

Nice ones Defiance. I still trying to capture some locomotives. Speeds are pretty low in my case. Around 60km/h (37 mph).

Cheers!

Nice shots but significantly wider than the normal width of the forum which causes formatting issues. :wink:

Can you link to slightly smaller images if at all possible please.

Bob.

Yep, we prefer no more than 700 pixels wide for one or two images, and no more than 500 if you're posting several pictures please!
