Heading west
Lens: smc PENTAX-DA 10-17mm F3.5-4.5 ED [IF] Fisheye zoom Camera: PENTAX K5 Photo Location: Carvel AB (mile 33) ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F5

Good day!
Sorry I've been away for a bit. Life has a way of doing that, and this self isolation certainly doesn't help.

I caught this train heading west, but he wasn't moving too fast, approx 25mph. What really caught me was in my editing to clear up some of the early evening glare in the sky, the coarse gravel just started to stand out quite nicely! I messed around a bit with dehazing and texture in photoshop and this was my result. I added my watermark to the side of the train which I think adds to the graffiti nicely.

I must admit it's a bit over processed for my taste. Thoughts please?

Have a good weekend. Stay safe, all of you.

I think it's great, a beautiful image, looks very good to me, not heavy-handed at all. I like the little bit of lens glare on the track, too. Maybe lighten up the upper right corner a bit.

Jeez, upper left. I've been drinking too much.

I get what you're saying about 'over-processed', and would tend to agree, except that it seems to work quite well for this shot. Also, that's quite a neat idea hiding your watermark in with the graffiti.

Thanks for your comments!! Always appreciated. To be clear, this is not a composite shot or a multi layered edit. This is just one layer.
