A remarkable train Terry! The view looks like it is worth all the effort of getting there!

  Great shot! Reminds me of the train ride up to Machu Pichu. They have a series of tracks that look like our truck runaway ramps. The train speeds up one, then they switch the track at the bottom of the ramp so that gravity helps the train to back down into another track, and it goes to and fro, higher and higher til the top of the steep mountain is achieved.

  This is beautiful HDR work, Ms T. Love the perspective captured, the gorgeous colors and detail and the clouds! The clouds are so cool - the lines of them provide a real sense of motion "moving up the track" along with the train. Super shot!

  Absolutely breathtaking capture Terry, if I was a judge I would just give you the GOLD now. This photo has it all, perfect composition, vibrant colors, beautiful blue sky, gorgeous mountains, and outstanding DOF and detail.

Are you using the in camera HDR Terry or a separate program, if not in camera which program do you use as I'm looking to buy one.

And last but not least a definite FAVORITE in my books.

  Thanks so much everyone. Jeffrey, I've never tried my in-camera HDR. I use Photomatix for my HDR work and like it very much. There are quite a few presets but you can tweak your HDR image to your liking as well.
