Hi Michelle. I got lucky with my timing as I was shooting in New Hope. I was there as the train was boarding & steaming up. I went down on the tracks (not exactly a daring move, as the train was standing still....and when it starts out it goes about a mile an hour). I used Topaz Adjust - Spicify in my post-processing & I tinkered with the saturation a bit.

Thanks for looking! #9093906

Hi Kerry. Thanks very much for the kind comments. This was taken in New Hope, PA. If you're interested, I know they also have an old fashioned steam engine in Strasburg, PA. #9174273
