    Revisiting my old thread. Over the years I have developed the technique of using negative exposure compensation (i.e., under exposing) for shots involving harsh, direct sunlight. I even included it in a class I conducted on bird photography at our local Bird Fest.

    I have found harsh lighting to be more of a problem when photographing birds than trains, but it can still present a problem with trains, especially at sunset. Check post #680 0f this thread:

    I probably should have used spot metering when focusing on the Sounder cars.
