Default Gosh..here we go again.

I would not bother y'all with any more of this overprocessing, but this one is one of my favorites.

It looks like you went crazy with the saturation. The yellow is way too yellow in both shots. Overpowering, almost. Just reprocess it and bring the saturation down.

The thing that sticks out to me is not the yellow on the engines, but the white in the clouds on the upper left of the photo - they almost look like they're glowing artificially.

I guess this is CSX's new investment in hovercraft GE technology. It can cruise land or rails!

But it still doesn't beat an EMD.

Besides the other issues mentioned, there is some sort of halo-type effect around the top of the signal.

Those are new ties blocking the view of the wheels.

It appears that new crossties are in front of portions of the locomotive wheels.

I bet the original out of the camera shot is good enough to edit correctly, without the over everything that's going on in those two.

What an illusion!

I pretty much had to cross my eyes to realize that those were ties.

Not to get off topic, but the last time I was up in that area, they were tearing a bunch of the second main track out of that area, single tracking it. I assume they are doing that because of lack of traffic?

I don't have the original, but I've one I shot at the same time same conditions. There has been no track torn up here. However, this is right at the interlocking to the tower, and they have removed all the tower thrown switches and installed brand new switches with electric motors, new signals,
etc. What you may have seen, if you were here in June or July, the track gang installing that stuff. The tower is locked up now, and the switches are being controled at the new dispatching center in Huntington, WVA.
CSX has spent a ton of money up here, for a part of the system at one time they had for sale.
I had just gotten the D80, and the saturation might have been cranked on 'er then. About the halo on the signal against the sky..don't you usally get some of that with digital?
I've got to go get that other shot, and reduce it so's I can post it here.
It will be as shot, no processing at all.

I'll be back.

Here's as shot
Resized only.

I've been looking at image, and the other one. If you look at 24, you see new hoses, the new 21? pin connector..and the dirty trucks. Someone has cleaned the total front of this engine. Look at 395 in back of 24, it certainly does not look oversaturated.

Here is a tight crop of the orginal photo showing the difference between the clean part of 24 and the dirty area under the rear radiator.

The front of this locomotive was cleaned with something..or had some painting done. You can also see that the nose of 395 in the rear of 24 looks fairly normal.
