  • Ooooooo!!! All I can say is SOO+Early morning light+UP photo as other choice(bleck)= Vote for Number 1!! It's absolutely awesome! I love it.

  • It has to be Photo 1! What an amazing shot! It just grabs you!
  • The lights and lighting make it #1
  • Six big ones on UP, awesome.


  • Instead of being a techie, let me put it another way.

    Photo 1: Too much background light makes the loco dark but I do love the light on the stacks.

    Photo 2: Snow, yes. Partly/Mostly Sunny, Yes. A bunch of units to round out a very nice photo, YES!!!!

    #2 is the winner!!!!!!!!
  • Great lighting effects on #1 gets my vote.
    I'm not a UP fan which doesn't help.
  • photo 2 is my pick because it has my favorite road the up.
  • This was a tough choice for me but I voted for the more artsy #1.
    I thought Mike and Erik took most of their photos in Wisconsin so I couldnt figure out what those UP C44ACCTEs were doing in Cheeseland.
  • Anybody and everybody does 3/4 shots of locomotives. Photo #1 showed something in a different position.
  • The guy picked two good photos, made for a hard choice. I voted for #1 the lighting made the shot.
  • Gotta go with #1. #2 was good but kinda ordinary.
  • Photo #1 is the more intriguing.
  • Gotta go with Photo #1 for selfish reasons...if I knew where the shot was taken, I could safely say my freight was on board.
  • Nahhhhh-eeeeeSS!!!! Both are sharp photos, too be sure, but the SOO shot what a tich more haunting to me...eeny, meeny, meinie-mo.......
