This is the third time I’ve been down to the railway station, trying to get a shot of this engine. Mother Nature is not cooperating with me and I have yet to figure out what I’m doing wrong with the exposure.
But you know what? I like it better in black and white anyways. Stick it, Mother Nature :)
I was messing around earlier (when am I NOT messing around?) making some digital elements for scrapbooking and I made this for my 365Project …
which I thought looked pretty cool. But when I put it on the photo,
I don’t think it looks right. It’s distracting, isn’t it? I see other people do stuff like that and I think it looks great. Hence the wasted hour spent making mine … LOL!
I dunno. What do you think?
EDIT: forgot to post the original shot! LOL!!!
So yeah, I cropped it to get rid of the building and make the engine more of the focal point, and added a bit of a glow to the black and white version. But see what I mean about the exposure? I’m getting the train nice and black (she’s a beauty) but the dismal sky and crappy snow are wonky.
Try, try again! I think I’ll have more luck in summer.
