Alright.. here is something that you could try, it may help you to get to know your digital imaging programs.. photoshop.. photopaint.. whatever.. this is something that I came up with that I think looks pretty cool.. what can you do with yours? Have fun here.

That is no manipulation, that is just converting to a negative. :-(

Below, three images taken at Shenandoah Junction, WV, all within the same hour, made to look like the same moment. ;-)

Here, kinda interesting!

1.) #12 resting before hooking up to her train.
2.) Me yanking the throttle back on #190.

Hmmm, about that dual engine B-unit ... with the exaust from each of the two stacks blowing in different directions... :-(

Last I heard that engine was down your way about a week ago. LOL. I'll be posting my few shortly after I find the CD they're on.

Dave, it seems to me you are being very critical to people who are just trying to have some fun.

I think I have to agree about the negative images, though. All you do is click 1 button and you're done.

Lighten up Brandon, what I said was meant in jest. ;-)

Do you live in PA or MD? I notice your pics are along the B&O in MD.

Dave -
I caught wind of that shot earlier, before I registered here.
It's phenomenal. No one would have ever guessed.
And they say power corrupts - looks like you've mastered some
digital manipulation tricks.

I think I'll toy around with that - I've come to start taking photos of
locations that would have been cool if a train had showed - maybe I can start "filling" them in : ). Instead of memorial plaques, you might see tripod markers next to the Sandpatch and Black Rock Tunnel portals!

BTW - the negative "digital" manipulations were probably considered "digital" since they were most likely done "digitally". I don't think you were in any way being harsh, however.

Great photos on the site, BTW.

I've been toying with the idea of doing more digital manipulations, but furst I need the medium to work with which I need to work on too.

When was that last photo taken? Looks like you caught the same power I did seen here: [photoid=137588] Its pretty cool to see where "your" power ends up.

Sorry for the late response, I haven't been around here lately.

Anyway, the shot was taken a day before yours was in Phillipsburg, NJ, so NS much have just sent the power west on a train the next day.

Some colorized B&W photos.
image not changed, except for adding color.
(these are all reduced in size too..)

the elusive Alco C620!

almost all of these were created for various railfan forum discussions,
such as when someone asks "Why wasnt there ever an Alco C620?"


And a few more..
This one is a loco that might have actually existed..
it was being planned, or at least considered.

Although it's not a real manipulation, I thought this came out awesome and wanted to share since I can't upload it. Feedback is always welcome! If anyone thinks of a way to make this photo interesting without using PS please tell me! Thanks.

Looks like you got yourself a new avitar!
Need to see the original to answer your question, but the end result
is very cool!

Here's one that I did at the request of a client. Nothing that required much effort on my part (just a Buzz filter from Flaming Pear), but they were pleased with the finished result.

That looks really awesome, Bill! I wouldn't mind seeing or putting together a book of steam or first gen. diesel shots done like that or using other similar filters.

Scott loved the Lehigh Valley SD70's. It's fun to think..What if...what if Conrail wouldn't have happened? I saw on a Conrail web site that someone painted up a Penn Central SD70 in green and white. It looked pretty sharp. I just wish NS would do something other than black & white. I feel like we've gone back in time 30+ years to the Penn Central with NS's paint scheme.
