    Paul,

    Great job!! You make my Cringe Gulch Lumber & Transportation Company HOn3 look sick! I'm very impressed and I know how much time you have invested in making just the trees alone [​IMG]
    Your site is well laid out and loaded very fast for me. I especially enjoyed the photography section. If I remember correctly, using a SLR camera on a tripod, you can set up the exposure in the middle using the builtin light meter .. then for each f-stop you close down for depth of field you add one click to the time. If you get to the "B" setting on the time add one second for each click beyond. Is that right?

    Like I said before .. this is going to be a tough one to judge!

    Hi ironhorseman
    Thanks for your kind words, I just love logging layouts, don't know why I didn't do this 50 years ago. As for the photography, I was a proffesional photographer for a number of years, regarding your question,I actually set the f stop a f22 for all my shots, regardles of lens used. I then make a test run on black&white first setting the scene and writing the scene down, where lights were placed, or daylight tubes were used.
    Then take a number of shots from 1 second to 4 seconds, when I develope the negs, I can see at a glance which exposures are going to be fine for color, no need to print the B/W. Both films used are 200 ISO/ASA
    ----------------
    I always say when taking photo's, look around to see if any unwanted items like cigar buts, ashtray, etc. - should not be on the railroad!!!
