CP Train on the way to Montreal.


Peter R. Hammer July 02, 2007

Interesting use of the orton technique (?). It works well to focus attention on the train and adds a dreamy quality to the image. Much better than a straight shot which would be boring. Well done RD. #684018

Thanks Peter, you are right on both counts
and the original was very plain. I wanted to wait till the train came closer but it scared the ba-jeebers out of me. #4467279

The wonderful effect is that one feels the power of the train so much more because of the softness all round it--as though it's thundering down on us out of the mist. #4537373

RD . July 22, 2007

Thanks Mitch and you are so right, that train was thundering! #4541555
