An old train rusting on a side track in Hinton West Virginia. The passenger car was built in 1942. Don't have a date on the engine.

The engine was used as a power plant switcher in Cabin Creek, WV.

I really like the composition of #1! The processing is a little over done for my tastes. But it is still a nice image.

Man, that is one rusty train! You captured it very well, Ken!
Thanks, Lyndee. It has been setting there for decades.


Really cool shot! Nice composition on the first image.

Thanks, Samuel for your comment

Did you use topaz to pp it? Very nice.
I used NIK HDR software to blend three images to get the desired look I wanted, then did the remaining PP in NX2

Thanks, Karen. This is my 1st attempt using HDR to "over-do" an image. In using HDR I attempt to get a natural looking image in difficult lighting situations. This image looked like a good one to give it a try.
