Ed - I love that lost shot of the orange train. You can see the steam coming from it and distorting the background...amazing! Love how your car looks like a gunmetal finish too - the more I see of mineral gray the more I like it. Keep the pics coming - your next assignment is Big Sur!

Thanks! Yes the BNSF orange locos contrast nicely against rocks there. I love the mineral grey too. It should look even better when I get around to getting the windows tinted. I will get more pics when I go on my next road trip. Big Sur is always fun, but I think I am going to be in the Eastern Sierras and up over the Tioga road through Yosemite this fall. It's a pretty spectacular drive in its own right.

One last train...fun with Photoshop

Basically aperture priority at 5.6 with -1/3 exposure compensation. All shot in RAW and processed in lightroom and CS6.
Thank you. You are a seriously talented photographer.
