Snowy Snoqualmie Railroad Depot


Sorry to post a nice, cold, snowy scene here in the middle of July. Actually, this scene might be refreshing to all of my friends that are sweltering in the Summer heat! I apologize for posting another Snoqualmie shot, but I am going through my pictures and processing shots that I can have displayed during the Snoqualmie Depot Days the weekend of August 17th through the 19th. I will have some of my work displayed at the Quirkz of Art booth in downtown Snoqualmie.


I have been sitting on this image since January 16th! The relevance of that day is the fact that I got soooo many great shots from that particular day. I know many people hate the snow, but I really like how it turns an ordinary scene into something magical! I did slightly over process this, as I wanted more of a "Christmas Card" feel to it.


This is a combination of three exposures (-2,0,+2) merged and tonemapped in Photomatix, I then moved to Photoshop and removed a restroom sign as well as a couple of dust spots. I ran through Topaz Adjust to regain detail and give the image some "Pop!" I then moved to Lightroom and sharpened a bit, as well as removed some noise, added a vignette and a little grain.


Thank you for your support, views, comments and faves. I sincerely appreciate it. If you are in the Seattle area and have the time, I would like to meet you at the Snoqualmie Depot Days the weekend of August 17th through the 19th.
