Blue Sky & Sunshine = Silhouette

Just as the train was coming by a cloud blocked the sun from the track so I decided to help the Silhouette look. What I did was darken only the darker areas. I like this look so I am going to keep it and put it in my gallery.

Is there any way to get back more detail in the coud formation? Maybe in the raw file?

Roger,

I prefer the original image with the visible locomotive mostly because of the time of day. I think a sillouette shot would look great if you could shoot it in the late evening sun. Having said that, any picture of a train is a good one!

I had an oppotunity to visit Horseshoe Curve in Altoona, PA a couple of weeks ago. Faboulus spot for train spotting: 3 traks, 200 feet above ground, and a good sized horseshoe curved track around the mountain. I was told about 60 trains travel the tracks daily.Originally owned by the Penna Railroad, it is currently used by Norfolk Southern. I sure could have use a fisheye lens to do justice to the scene. I've attached 2 pics from there.

Horseshoe Curve in Altoona, PA looks like a fun spot to get some train photos. Nice photos thanks for posting them.
