No diesel locomotive with custom paint job and styled aluminum wheels.. no fancy painted frieght cars with their logos... simply an old "maucho" steam machine capable of "Getting er Done" and the backbone of most nations transportation systems until the mid 20th Century. Ladies and gentleman of the viewing audience.. I proudly present to you..... A FREIGHT TRAIN...!!!

Every since population explosion starting in the early 70's in the Atlanta area.. emmisions from our 5 million or so cars on the highway daily seem to have stunk up our chances of having great sky as we used to have. All in the name of progress.. haha

I caught this picture, you made well to take the train on the curve, gives a feeling of an without end train. You think? .. watching the original, is or not HDR!. According to the sky, not Atlanta's fault ... it's the process.

@Ricardo.. ten or so railroad cars got cropped out. You are asking the clueless one if it's HDR... not a clue naturally. haha

Thats a beautiful shot John, but you do have some noise in the sky on the left as you look at the image

Beautiful shot John, though you should get a software to remove the noise in the sky.

Interesting.. after reading all the comments on sky I just completed a 15 minute sky watch 16:37 hrs. Basic clouds with patches of blue. Grey cast in bottom of clouds and gray cast haze in blue around 94 degrees. This is an everyday thing anymore in summe

here. I look at the sky in Adrian's WOW picture Light-house. It that the richness of sky that everyone else see's daily or is it doctored in processing? Just wondering..?

Like the shot and composition. Just needs a little more detail in both shadows and highlights.

Superb John, just think your losing detail in the shadows on the main engine...

Agree with Graham. Some dark areas in the front of engine.
