Unintentional, but quite acceptable

    While waiting for a train climbing the hilly terrain west of Pittsburgh, Pa., another train decided to slide into the frame in the opposite direction. What's a photographer to do?

    The F-5's fast focusing locked the AF 80-200mm f2.8 ED-IF-D onto the closest train, the shutter fired and we are presented with this unintentional bit of "bokeh".

    I like it, but have a question about the grain. Is this an artifact of the wrong ISO, or intentional processing?

    It's a Kodachrome 64 slide scanned with Canoscan F2710 which is on it's last legs. The post-scanning software is Vuescan.
    Since moving to digital, I've had no desire to purchase a new slide scanner, hence the low quality image.
