Not sure if these should go here or in Newbie. If you guys bust my chops enough, I'll have my answer. ;)

Anyway, we took a little family excursion to ride a restored steam engine in Niles Canyon here in (roughly) the Bay Area of California. Would love any thoughts or critique.

Camera was Nikon D7100 for all of these shots.

I wana go on a steam train adventure :woohoo:

Not a bad set I think I would have chosen some different compositions. Too bad it was couldy out, they seem a little flat, maybe a little more contrast or blacks in post. I might have tried to add a little vibrance as well.
