Default Train Going Nowhere Fast

Hi fellow Pentaxians! I went to the city centre of Jyväskylä, looking around at the train station... found this high-speed Italian built train. It looked like it need a paint job, some cleaning... concrete looked... gray and boring... it overcast and muggy out... soooo I thought I would use some artistic filters and some about over an hour of experimenting with "motion blur" to come up with the following... a train going nowhere fast. All the best. Ned

Thanks Ned...now that I see the original, the filtered version does have its appeal!

Thanks! Just experimenting... for some odd reason, don't know why, but I like to take duds, or "going nowhere fast" photos and just experiment. Thanks for looking and all the best. Ned

Sometimes you can make gems out of lead when you do that. If nothing else, you can learn about what is and is not possible through processing software.

I rather like the modified one, kind-of fun.

nice job, really like it, and from the first one I wouldn't have guessed that it was standing still.

Cheers

Hi Ronny! Thanks for your kind words. Actually, over the past one year, your words and even constructive criticism, as well as that of others, has meant a lot to me... I appreciate straight words that help me learn and thus further enjoy this neat hobby. Thanks. Ned
