I was fortunate to get this shot yesterday as I was trying to shoot a barn. I had mirror lockup turned on and the timer so I could get the sharpest possible photo. I wasn't prepared when the train came by. I held up the camera, hit the shutter release and hoped for the best!

I wish I knew what the train schedule was so I can get back there and shoot some more.

Here's the original, before processing.

Neat shot!  I like the one after processing!!


John, what great colours!  Nice photo!

So did you add some sort of "effect" to the sky, or just change the settings?

Worked out nicely...and...where's the barn? ;D

Thanks for the nice comments. :)

I didn't really do much to the sky other than white balance correction in RawStudio. I boosted the temperature up pretty high. Then I dropped the exposure compensation down a bit to get the gradient in the sky. I created a second exposure setting for the train and landscape. I increased the contrast and dropped the saturation down for the train and surrounding landscape. In the Gimp, I put the underexposed layer (for the sky) on top and masked out the bottom section.

Sadly, the barn didn't turn out good. I compared the pictures I shot the other day to the ones I shot last week and realized I wasn't standing far enough to the left to get more of the barn. The tree in front of it ended up taking too much space. It turned out awful. I'll have to go back for a third shot at it.
