Locomotion - Golden Age of Locomotives - Royal Hudson 2860

I remember locomotives in Poland even in 70's in regular service. Going 120 km in 4 hours – I really didn't have much appreciation for them back then. Now the all sounds of locomotive bring the memories … the ghost train . Back then every trip was an event , now we just get there. Don't take me wrong , I love technology but I like looking back.

This image was entered under the name “ Locomotion “ to Delta Club's Print Challenge and to my disbelieve it won and our Surrey Photo Club got 1st , 2nd and honorable mention ( 3 out of 5 awards )


Just a bit about this image.

It is hand-held 3-image HDR of Royal Hudson taken last May in Langley . I usually would take up to 14 images for HDR every 2/3 stops but this one only 3 ( +2 , 0 , -2 ) and while playing with HDR – Photomatix, I just pushed temperature slider all the way to the right and it just something new showed up. Suddenly from cold blue steel it turned to bronze “ social realism “ statue.

Unfortunately I had to work and could not attend the competition ( sucks ! )


PLEASE , Please , please .. View Large On Black


See where this picture was taken, Cloverdale , B.C. [?]
