This was shot at the San Clemente, Ca. beach where the pier and the Amtrac tracks are right next to each other. A slow shutter speed and panning was used to capture this. A bit of levels and some Topaz was used to help the details. A touch of sharpening was only used on the front of the engine, the rest was motion blurr from the movement of the train. OH, by the way, where else but in California do the trains run backwards like this?
