Default Ask before you try... how 'bout this one?

What are anyone thoughts on this photo? It was so foggy on this morning that I absolutely had no shot facing the train, but turning as the train passed I noticed how amazing the rising sun looked through the fog.

Is this PEQ fodder or do you think it would be accepted.

Thanks in advance

It definitely has potential, but I'm biased because I just go goo-goo-ga-ga over these types of shots. It's out of the box AND moody, a great combo. I would give it some of the normal processing, I wouldn't crop in anymore because I'm liking that NS logo on the 2nd unit. Give it some processing, give it a go. Won't hurt to try.

I think you have a winner there. It needs some some cropping, to get rid of some bottom and a little of the right side first though. Nice.

Add some contrast and crop. I think will get in with touch ups.

I did no post processing on this shot at all other then a resize.

Thanks Guys!

Did a bit to the first shot including a crop and am also including the frame taken afterward. I really like both and dig the NS logo in the first, but the rays glowing on the double stacks on the second one looks really nice to.

What do you think?

Thanks


Edit: Disregard the second photo, it appears pretty soft now that I uploaded it.

Very cool lighting you captured there. I'd go for the pic with just the locos, crop it, contrast it, maybe even ligthen up the plants a little (very odd looking things...were they convered with frost?) Looks like it also needs some sharpening. I think you have a winner with the right processing.

Wish you had a verticle showing a little more train and less foreground. Great otherwise.
