The Train Yard in search of color
Posted By: IowaBoy, 04-17-2009, 08:39 AM

After several days of cold windy & gray semi spring days I went in search of some color and found it in an unlikely place. Yes these are HDR taken with K200 & kit lens. Fire away!

Take from a Bridge.

Closer to the ground.

Cropped oddly wide for my pc wallpaper.

Love the old Grand Trunk colours. Nice desolate yard too.

Hi IowaBoy!

I like your railroad shots. Keep 'em coming!
You might post them a little larger next time. I think around 800 pixels at least would be good. I'll bet the GT loco looks great as a wallpaper.

I like 1 and 2; they have a nice illustrated feel.
