    I like your image but how come all the mud jammed in the wheels what the story behind it?
    :biggrin:
     
  8. I like the shot as well. I like old trains and it appears this one has seen a very rough life! Appears to have been stuck in mud or has coal ash stuck to the wheels.

    Thanks for sharing.

  9. very cool image.
     
  10. Lovely shot!! Would be interested to hear about the post-processing to gain the sepia tones. :smile:
     
  11. Thanks.

    I used the Fred Miranda BW Pro PS action.

    Here is the original, before hitting the burned out areas and toning.

  13. Ron, Well done.

    Any info on where this poor thing is and is it accessable to other photographers?

    Take care.

  14. It is in the city of Snoqualmie, WA. They have a bunch of old railroad equipment, most is locked up behind a fence. I took this by locking the exposure through the fence, then holding the camera on the top of the fence and pointing in roughly the same location.

  15. Thanks Dave. I recognize your signature line, although we called it "Visualize Swirled Peas"
