Wonderfully executed portraits, a beautiful model, and one helluva chair. :)

Hey lovely images all around. I generally don't give unsolicited critique but I just needed to comment on this particular shot. Technically it's perfect. However I think having them walk on train tracks completely ruined the image for me. Seeing a baby on railroad tracks makes me tense up and is just very uncomfortable to look at. A family portrait like this really shouldn't be about danger in my opinion, but that's just the feeling I get from viewing. The same shot on a path in the park might be more fitting, or am I being too sensitive?
No, you are not being too sensitive. And I'll preface the rest of my comments to say that I'm also a rail fan that has operated equipment from the full sized on down to scale models that fit in the palm of your hand. And I also love taking photos. Combining the two is fabulous. But taking photos on the track like this is just plain stupid!! There is no two way about it. Not only is it illegal, it is extremely dangerous. All the railroads have a policy concerning taking photos, here is Union Pacific's. And trust me, if they catch you, it's a big deal. It is so dumb and dangerous that even Operation Lifesaver, a national organization for public rail safety education, has had to devote resources to the subject. I don't care if you can stand in the middle of the track and look up and down it and see where it ends in both directions, never take photos of clients on them, it'll just encourage others to do the same and they won't be so lucky. How would you feel if your subject got hit by a train, how do you think they'd feel if you got hit by a train? Any self respecting photographer should have the smarts to never suggest to a client to take photos on tracks and the guts to tell a client NO if they request photos on tracks.
As for this photo, you can tell that this is in fact an active track that a train could of come along at any moment. The ballast is level with the top of the ties, there is no growth in the ballast up the middle or even along the edges, and most importantly the rail head is polished. Is that to say all active tracks are like this, not at all. But as a rail fan, a quick glance and seeing these tree things is enough for me to know to be wary of getting close to the tracks. Modern locomotives are not big noisy things, but quiet and efficient powerhouses. You will not hear one coming at speed until after it has passed you. And the whole putting you hand or ear on the track to tell if a train is coming is also BS. So I'll end my rant now.

@tom02013 I don't know if you have read my presentation but I come from a D800 and actually I love the GH4. the sensor delivers very good photos in my opinion. I don't have any color issues or anything of this kind. Great overall camera ! :2thumbs:

This wasn't a planned portrait so no flash(es) available and in a poorly lit room. Note the high ISO and relatively low shutter speed.
